Light creates visibility without itself being visible

For us, good architectural lighting design means not giving the light source itself undue prominence.

We take this simple rule quite literally, illuminating spaces without letting the light fixtures steal the show. By blending the art and science of lighting design, we contribute to creating magnificent spaces for our clients.

Testimonials

Sunset Tower Hotel & San Vincente Bungalows

Mark Raissen is the most brilliant lighting designer with whom I have ever worked. First, he lit the exterior of the Sunset Tower, then the Tower Bar, then the rooms, then the entire San Vicente Bungalows inside and out, now he doing my home!!! He is gifted and talented and easy to work with genius lighting ideas and solutions. I will never do another project without him.
