SPARKING LIGHT WHILE RESPECTING THE NEED FOR DARK 

LIAISON FOR ELECTRICIANS - ACCESSIBLE LIGHTING DESIGN SERVICES

DARKITECT
LIGHTING

Light and darkness are essential to our existence, survival and pleasure.

Light and dark allow us to function as well as enjoy our spaces, from within the interior and exterior.

We need varying degrees of dark and light to work, study, play, cook, make love, sleep, watch fireflies.

 

Science has proven that light and dark entrains our circadian system to dictate the quality of all of the above. 

 

Thoughtful selection of electric light sources, optimizing daylight harvesting and adapting to the necessity of darkness when considered in the design process will provide the end user and the surrounding environment with the stamp of longevity of your work for years to come. Make every photon count. They will be noticed and felt as much as they are seen. 

Darkitect Lighting offers consultation and design services to support the unique needs of clients as a liaise for specialized lighting solutions. Aesthetic and function are at top of mind and guided by biocentric, efficiency and DarkSky impact. Lighting advocacy and educational resources can be found at our sister site eyeofthepeacock.ca

The challenge:

You're busy - making sure that your crew is fishing cable, estimating and observing building code. There isn't time to have sentimental discussions about art pieces that needs to be lit or the grandmother that is moving in next year or autistic child that will have unique visual needs . 

 

You and your crew came to wire, enable light. It takes time and skill to connect with a client to understand what their needs and personal living habits are.

 

Time to have tea and find out that the spare room will be for the in laws in 5 years that will require triple lumen output. Or that there is an autistic child that might benefit from RGB cove lighting?

 

"Cans" meet code but do they meet client expectations and needs in the long term?

The Solution:

The Process:

We can:


A) Send a Darkitect in for a lighting consult to to have an in depth conversation about the clients needs and desires around lighting and their use of space. We can synthesize this information via various reports that include Dialux renderings or simple lighting RCP layouts in AutoCad and hand drafted.

and/ or 

B) 

Work together before or during rough in to think things through and spec the best design for the client.

With the equal demand and confusion of controls systems we can work together to ensure fluid on boarding of new technologies and sustainable client education and follow up.
