Viaduct Harbour

Conceptual lighting design for these waterfront buildings in Auckland’s Viaduct harbour.


Lighting was modelled and calculated in lighting software to meet Auckland Unitary Plan and NZ lighting standards.

We investigated ways to reduce light pollution by using light controls and directing light downwards where possible.


The client was looking for something which represented the projects vicinity to the water front. We presented several ideas by way of sketched mixed media to present a refined motif based on water ripples.

“We have used Sam to assist us with lighting calculations and modelling for some of our projects. Sam is extremely professional and always delivers on the timeframes set.”
