It's one of those exciting but scary moments for a lighting designer—your architectural partner asks you to design lighting for their office. No pressure.
This office project was an amazing opportunity to express the identity of the client and their design philosophy using light. This meant simple forms, careful placement, gentle treatment of materials, and varied levels to create interest and contrast so the expression of a clean aesthetic comes through.
With an energy load more than 30% below the already-stringent Seattle Energy Code, thoughtful choices about what to light, and what not to light, maximized energy effectiveness.
