Our team create inspirational lighting schemes for bespoke homes (ranging from new builds to stately homes), prestigious hotels, bars and restaurants, stunning churches and fine art collections.

We work closely with clients, architects and project design teams.  The majority of our business comes through word of mouth and old clients returning. We are an integral part of project teams and the end success of a build or renovation.

We run a regular programme of  CPD for architects’ practices across the country and are often invited to run Masterclasses at national building shows.  We frequently feature in the national building and design press and were very proud to make the ITN News with our work at Hever Castle.
