Creating environments filled with light

OUR PASSION IS LIGHT DESIGN

Independent Lighting Designers

Leolightdesign is an independent & creative lighting design practice working in close partnership with developers, architects, project managers and with other design disciplines. Whilst we plan sustainable LED lighting utilising innovative lighting technology for commercial and residential projects, we specify energy efficient lighting products using the latest lighting management control technology sourced from UK and European manufacturers, which we can have supplied and delivered to site.

Creative Lighting Design Team

Innovation, creativity and passion are the keystones to our success in illuminating architectural spaces for people. We at leolightdesign ensure that our lighting design solutions are imaginative and original. Whilst both founders hold a MA (Res) into Light and Health, Nuala successfully completed a BA (Hons) in Interior Design whilst Sandra graduated with a BA (Hons) in Interactive Arts &Creativity. She held numerous international and UK exhibitions showing her light sculptures and interactive light installation art work. The latest being at the Luminale in Frankfurt, Germany.

Sustainable LED Lighting Design

Sustainable LED lighting has been a founding principle of the practice, and is fully integrated into our designs. Our approach to design is driven by the fundamental belief that good lighting design should reduce the carbon footprint in the built environment. We favour daylight conditions but believe that sustainable lighting should not compromise function and visibility. We plan and deliver innovative LED lighting schemes that are energy efficient and cost effective to run. Sustainable lighting design is about creating lighting conditions for best visibility of tasks, a pleasant visual working environment and the wellbeing and health of the people.

Human- Centric Lighting Solutions

We put people at the centre of our lighting solutions, because we know that it is light which sustains human life. Human-Centric Lighting, ‘brings natural light indoors’, which can support our circadian rhythm, enhance concentration, improve sleep and our overall well-being. No other lighting solution mixes light intensity and spectral qualities to mimic the varying conditions of daylight. Our Human- Centric Lighting solutions using the latest technologies, we can create conditions for good work performance and quality of life.

“I had forgotten how much light there is in the world, till you gave it back to me.” 

Ursula K. Le Guin, A Wizard of Earthsea

LIGHTING A REVOLUTION

Light has the greatest effect on us humans. Not only does it enable us to see. Light stimulates us, and influences our moods and activity levels. Although the lighting industry recognised that lighting was not just about seeing the task at hand, today lighting engineers still calculate photometric data of luminaires and lamps to provide the correct amount (quantity) of light for people to see well. Yet in the 1990s, a lighting model was proposed which looked holistically at lighting. Instead of purely concentrating on light levels, the quantity of light, the model also considered the quality of light. When applied into any indoor environment, good ‘quality lighting’ balances the needs of people, considers economical and environmental issues and enhances architectural spaces.

Architecture & Space

Modern lifestyles are all too often lived indoors, shut away from natural light. Both architects and lighting designers can work together to maximise and control incoming natural daylight.

Leolightdesign takes light, lighting and architecture serious! We assess first the quantity, quality and depth of sunlight coming into the building before we design a lighting scheme to show the beauty of architecture and use lighting to highlight architectural details.

At the same time an architectural envelope offers a space, which can be filled with visual and biological-active lighting so that we can live an indoor lifestyle whilst enjoying sunlit lighting conditions.

Environment & Economy

Any sustainable lighting design today needs to be able to show that the design solution safeguards global resources. Therefore it needs to be assessed across its lifecycle!

Quality lighting starts with the mining of ‘rare earth elements’ needed for LEDs, continues with wattage consumption per lumen output and ends with the safe disposal of electrical and electronic equipment waste.

Leolightdesign is passionate about protecting our planet. We like to maximise daylight indoors and complement it with good quality lighting to reduce energy costs for owners, add value for investors and to provide people with vital benefits of light and lighting.

Human Factors

Throughout our entire life we need sunlight to see well and also set our biological clock.

Good quality lighting provides the required levels for visual performance and contributes to human wellbeing.

Leolightdesign creates a pleasant working environment, which enables interpersonal communication, enhances motivation and productivity and provides for safety. As lighting designers we have a responsibility to ensure that the desired daily light dose is sufficiently received by people living and working indoors because lighting is an integral part of the built environment. Our design team knows how to support our quality of life.
