About Us

We are a collection of trained architects and interior designers who understand space and have a passion for light. Our design backgrounds ensure our solutions are considerate of the unique architectural style, mood or activities of each space and so we convey our ideas in a spatial, conceptual package. With a function-follows-form process we use lighting to accentuate the unique spatial features and textures first and back that up with a robust technical lighting resolve.

Our director Sam studied architecture at university and moved to Europe to train as a lighting designer. While working at a design consultancy in London he managed a team of designers on large scale projects across several time zones. Since moving back to New Zealand he has promoted the creative approach to lighting design which is already commonplace in international design hubs.

Talk to us

No project or scope is too big or too small.
We can provide simple one-off advice if you just need someone to talk to about one aspect of your design. Our collaborative approach means we can meet project deadlines for projects of any scale in New Zealand or internationally.
