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.

Mark, Aliona and the team at LightRaze are truly a dream to work with. Lighting design is a component of a project that is all too many times overlooked as an extravagance that can be easily handled on the fly. While this could not be farther from reality, the best in lighting design will enhance and elevate all other details present in a space. In addition to their highly considered attention to detail in lighting design, it’s their deep knowledge of the latest technology - and how to value engineer when necessary - that makes this team stand out, and also happen to be a lot of fun to work with.

Architectural lighting can make the difference between average and extraordinary interiors. LightRaze understands that and designs lighting to seamlessly blend and perform.

Mark and team are the most dedicated and creative lighting designers I have worked with. In my own home they have transformed every surface and all my objet d’art into a magical symphony of light and dark. They always just “get it!”

Despite the fact that he circulates in the highest echelons in the lighting field, Mark Raissen makes a point of being available to educate, enlighten and advance the field technologically, artistically, scientifically and commercially.
