Architectural lighting design.

Lighting is a key part of the architectural vision.

More than ever, in contemporary architecture, lighting is a key part of the design and an intrinsic part of the building. As well as being functional, architectural lighting can be expressive, impressive, exciting and playful. It can add drama and energy, or create texture and mood. It can be interactive, or go unseen — but not unnoticed.

Enhancing the spatial experience.

However you approach it, the job of architectural lighting is to enhance the overall spatial experience. And with recent technological advances producing slimmer, sexier, more flexible products, there are so many exciting and inventive ways to create exactly the effect you desire.
Challenges such as, limited budgets, short timescales and product failure or installation issues can impact on the realisation of your vision — but with 299 they don’t have to.

The devil is in the detail.

The best architectural lighting is the one that makes you pause and smile. Hours of work go into achieving this fleeting wow moment that will hopefully form a long lasting impression, starting from selecting the right product, that can accommodate your creative vision.

Turning your concept sketch with angles, curves or a bit of both into a sleek lighting systems. That connect seamlessly without a light leakage with diffusers that fit perfectly, all delivered to site pre-wired and clearly labelled, is what fuels our passion for design and detail.

299 are the architectural lighting experts because...

Working from your concept sketch or detailed architectural drawing, we analyse every element of your design. First, we will consider the right luminaire for the job. If we don’t have one, we’ll look into our network of trusted partners or even into designing a bespoke fitting. Using the latest technology, we are capable of producing a prototype tailored to your project. Short timescales and more modest budgets are no obstacles, in fact they give us a chance to shine.

Working with professional specifiers, we can give you an advice on how to deliver outstanding architectural feature lighting for your CAT A fit out or create feature lighting tailored completely to your client’s brand. And if you are not a specifier, that’s fine too. When working with business owners/end users, we are happy to support you with a bit of friendly guidance and support through to practical completion. We have been doing this for over 20 years. So let us show you what great architectural lighting looks like.

The power of geometry.

Geometric shapes have been a trend in interior design for the past few years. The growing popularity of triangles, Y shapes and squares has inspired us to create a new Geometric range of product available in several standard sizes. Because sometimes, the timescale and budget don’t allow for bespoke lighting solutions. With a bit of imagination, some amazing new shapes can be created, completely unique to your design concept

Architectural lighting solutions Q&A

When is the right time to talk to an architectural lighting design expert?
As early as is possible – ideally RIBA Stage 2 (Concept Design). The earlier plans are made, and provisions put in place, the easier it is when it comes to construction.

What are some examples of architectural lighting?
Any lighting that is used to highlight or complement architectural details.

How does light affect architecture?
Lighting can complement the architecture, by highlighting the detail. It works harmoniously with the building, to add contrast and accentuate the features.

What’s the difference between architectural and decorative light fittings?
Architectural lighting is installed to work alongside, complement and highlight the architecture. Decorative lighting is a feature piece in itself.

Contemporary space lends itself to minimal design, where the user is often not aware how the space is being lit.
