The purpose of lighting design is to create a comprehensive, safe and comfortable environment that supports the users’ well-being. Our multi-disciplinary design team understands the possibilities of lighting and makes use of the newest technology. We work closely together with architects and our customers.
Our services cover comprehensively real estate development and versatile urban environments, from concept design to implementation planning and lighting programming. Lighting helps us create comfortable and safe properties, such as commercial and office buildings. Our lighting designers have designed the interior and facade lighting of several valuable and protected buildings, such as museums. We also design lighting for park areas, roads and natural attractions.
Good lighting serves its purpose and respects the architecture
Interior lighting design for indoor spaces, the attractiveness of which can be increased with cosy, fun and comfortable lighting. Lighting that is both designed and implemented well increases occupational well-being. Our design team has experience of the lighting design of offices, commercial facilities and museums.
Our lighting design expertise also covers busier, functional areas, such as streets, different channels, bridges and railway areas.
We implement versatile lighting sites
- Facade lighting (new construction and protected sites)
- Commercial and office buildings
- Dynamic and moving light
- Area and road lighting
If a certain percentage of the building costs are allocated to public art, our designers are also skilled at coming up with and designing light installations that complement the architecture.
Our creative designers can professionally carry out large master plans and focus on the details. We always take the needs of the customer and the space into account.
To support the design process, we carry out lighting simulations for facilities, more extensive units or facades as well as Photoshop visualisation, which allows visualising the architectural design of the facilities during the planning stages. These are then proven by carrying out test lighting on site. Architectural sites are designed in close cooperation with the architects to achieve the best possible end result where architecture and lighting go hand in hand.
We utilise various digital lighting control systems and consider energy efficiency and usability in our designs. In lighting control, we consider the different control options, such as Dali, KNX and DMX wireless controls and motion/presence and daylight controls. We can use dynamic lighting control, which monitors factors such as changing daylight during the different times of day.
We always aim to minimise light pollution in our lighting design. Our designs also consider the impact of daylight on indoor premises and energy conservation. The requirements of LEED, BREEAM and WELL standards are part of sustainable design.
Another important part of our lighting designers’ work is the commissioning of lights and directing them, which allows us to finish the work and ensure that the plans have been followed.
This website also presents a few of our numerous commissions. All in all, we are a strong, national agency with top expertise just for your project!
Can a substation be architecturally interesting? Yes it can! The visually interesting, steel and rust-colored Länsisalmi fresh substation plays wonderfully with light. Sweco’s structural and building service designers were involved in the design of this beautiful building. Lighting plays a very big role in the building.
