Lighting design for public space

More security and attraction

Good lighting in the public space ensures safety – vandalism and traffic accidents decrease – but also contributes to the atmosphere and attracts visitors, residents and investors.
In addition, good light is sustainable, energy-efficient and cost efficient and thus contributes to achieving climate goals. Good for people and the environment.

Reduce light waste

Considerable savings can be achieved by taking a critical look at where light is needed and how much light is sufficient. On raw materials, purchase costs, energy and maintenance. Because light provides safety, but more light does not provide extra safety.
The involvement of a professional lighting designer ensures the right balance between safety, durability and cost efficiency.

Attractive to investors and residents

Achieve the climate goals in a sustainable, energy-efficient and cost efficient way. Attractively lit for visitors and investors, pride and a sense of identity for residents. Increased safety, less vandalism and traffic accidents. Measurable (for example, energy consumption and people’s perception) so that it can be continuously improved.

What clients say about our
lighting design.

How we work

How we add perfect lighting to
your world.



Your wishes and ambitions are our starting point. Together we formulate the objectives. And if desired, we hold a survey among users to get their preferences out.

We leggen de huidige situatie vast. Kwantitatief door te meten, kwalitatief door een gebruikersenquête.

We inventory the space, size of the project, challenges and opportunities. Is there a schedule of requirements? And what is the budget and timing?



With the information collected and any additional research into lighting solutions, we sketch the first design ideas and create a mood board. In addition, we determine the guidelines and design rules to be used. Together this forms the lighting concept; the basis for the lighting design.

This shows the essence of the lighting design. We create a visual representation with the light effects, points, and colors. In 2D or 3D. With both a proposal for the luminaires and a budgetary cost estimate. After discussing the preliminary design, we will include comments, feedback and additional wishes in the final design.

We detail the lighting design for each space or room. This elaboration consists of: lighting calculations, drawings, plans, system diagrams, a list of materials and a detailed cost estimate.



From different scenes, control via interactive software or scripting, to gobo projections and video content. We create everything necessary for optimal control of the lighting installation.

We support the implementation of the project where necessary. For example, we are the point of contact for the architect and the installer and we provide purchasing advice to guarantee the best price and quality. We also support the installer in commissioning the lighting.

We meten direct na oplevering, na 1 jaar en/of periodiek. Kwantitatief en kwalitatief. Resultaten leveren we aan in een helder rapport.
