WELCOME TO OUR DAYLIGHTING PLAYGROUND
LET’S GET ACQUAINTED
As designers, HLB promotes a positive vision of the future, based upon the belief that many of the environmental problems we face inspire creative solutions. The process of sustainable design is highly iterative — a collaborative spirit is key! Sustainable integration requires teamwork, smart design, integration of daylight, electric light, controls, and commissioning.
HLB’s full service Daylighting and Sustainable Design Studio (DSD) brings over forty years of sustainable lighting experience, anchored by young and innovative design talent, and led by Principal expertise. Now more than ever, building teams need the expertise of knowledgeable daylighting specialists — creative designers who can integrate new technologies, maximize benefits and preserve our environment.
We take pride in our firm’s honest approach to doing business and achieving daylighting excellence. Accomplishing big things takes a lot of trust from our clients and internal team members in the early stages of the design process.
DAYLIGHT INNOVATION STARTS HERE
Thought leaders have to do more than think about design. Being the best isn’t good enough in today’s industry, you have to be visible and engaged within the community, otherwise you’re just a thinker and not a leader.
Thought leaders are both at the top of their game and influential in the game itself. If you’re good at what you do, ask yourself how engaged you are with others who do the same thing. Are you an active part of the conversation? Are you positioned as a leader amongst the larger discussion? At HLB we live it, breathe it, feel it and lead it! Discover the HLB experience through “The Daylight Dynamic” design portfolio.
