Light is as much a “building material” as steel or concrete. Although such structural components are needed to enclose a space, it has no real existence until it is seen and it registers in a persons consciousness. Light defines space; reveals texture and color; shows form; indicates scale; separates functions.
Good lighting makes a building look and work the way the architect intended at all hours of day and night. It contributes to the character, to the desired attitude toward form and space, and to the effective functioning of that space. Lighting is dynamic. Change the lighting and the world around us changes.
An evenly illuminated space is similar to an overcast day; dull, monotonous, and boring. Variations in brightness and the interplay of light and shadow add variety to a space and provide visual relief and a sense of excitement. Scallops of light on a wall from nearby downlights and the shadows produced from an uplight under a plant or a small sculpture can create areas of visual interest that give character and individuality to a space. Highlights provided by accent lighting create focal points that can direct attention or communicate an idea. When these lighting schemes work in concert, they provide excitement to the space and the objects within.
We create flawless environments in the finest residential and commercial spaces. Our designers have completed projects ranging from illumination of a single piece of fine artwork to projects with over 3500 fixtures controlled by a single scene control computer and accessible by touch panels throughout the property. This makes the most complex systems simple to use.
Hinson Design Group's designers assume responsibility for determining how things will look and feel in a space. For a given space, our goal is to understand and interpret our clients intent, devise a suitable lighting concept and translate it into a plan. Conceptual ideas are developed from continuous observation and analysis; hence the main contribution of the lighting designer to the design process is creative vision. We then convert that vision into reality through clear documentation and communication of all of the details, supervision of trades, and final adjustments to ensure the vision is realized.
