WE’RE A COMPANY THAT LOVES TO CREATE
LIGHTING INNOVATION STARTS HERE
HLB Lighting Design has been living and breathing architectural lighting design for almost fifty years, and in that time we’ve gained incredible ingenuity about ourselves and our clients. We’ve realized it’s not just about artistry. It’s about insight, strategies and results.
As specialists, we concern ourselves with a holistic approach to the visual environment by integrating electric light and daylight into the overall design approach. We immerse ourselves in the design process of our projects, uncovering the challenges, untangling the facts, and delivering intelligent and elegant lighting solutions that add value and make sense. We’re passionate about our craft and we follow through on every project with a commitment to client service that goes beyond the ribbon cutting ceremony.
INTEGRATED SERVICES & EXPERTISE
INNOVATION THAT PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
We have a proven process that’s simple, supportive, informative, and flexible for our clients. This enables us to complete work on time, within budget and get it done right. Our comprehensive services start with conceptualization of each design phase and carry through to commissioning and post occupancy evaluation — tailoring each facet of our work specifically to the needs of each project. Our clients receive optimal results when HLB’s full scope of services are provided and fine tuning is performed by our professional lighting designers.
EXTERIOR ARCHITECTURAL LIGHTING
In an industry focused on the latest lighting technologies, we believe human factors drive the success of an exterior lit environment. From building facades, parks, streetscapes and urban realm’s — our experts focus on materials and methods which are cost-effective, easy to maintain, and satisfy the user. Not only should your project illuminate beautifully, it needs to be easy to operate and not break the bank!
INTERIOR ELECTRIC LIGHTING
Our experts pinpoint each human experience for which interior lighting is to be provided. Lighting should not compete with, but enhance your space — direct attention where necessary, and signal changes in activities. It should do so within a simple vocabulary of color and intensity, creating a comfortable, glare-free and energy efficient solution.
DAYLIGHTING DESIGN & LIGHT TRESPASS
Utilizing our daylighting services in the early stages of your project could save you big money on long term operational costs. Daylight integration, fenestration analysis, solar and environmental analysis, building siting and daylight harvesting — are critical strategies that drive energy and cost savings.
LEED & SUSTAINABLE DESIGN SOLUTIONS
Most lighting codes and standards evolve from professional committees. Our experts lead the industry in crafting best practice guidelines, standards and codes — with over 500 hours per year invested in the future of high quality and sustainable lighting design. We have the expertise needed to analyze your project for energy use, electric lighting, daylighting, light pollution, and energy code compliance.
3D VISUALIZATION & CALCULATIONS
Lighting analysis software comes in many forms, it’s not “one size fits all”. HLB invests in many lighting technology tools such as: Diva for Rhino, High-dynamic-range imaging (HDR), Ecotect, Radiance, Daysim, AGI32, and AutoCAD. Would you like Revit with that?
CONTROL SYSTEM INTEGRATION
Our experts provide integrated controls that can be easily modified by the user, not reprogrammed by a specialist! This provides you with the proper tools to commission and validate your equipment quickly and streamline the project process. We understand the need for ease of maintenance and achieving maximum efficiency in minimum time.
DIGITAL DISPLAY INTEGRATION
As LEDs continue to change, digital displays have transformed from paid ads to rich interactive experiences that enhance the perception of space, architectural materials, and human interaction. Our experts work with you to thoughtfully integrate dynamic displays that fit your needs, starting with the conceptual approach to assisting in refining the technical specifications.
CUSTOM FIXTURE DESIGN
From pendants, bollards, sconces, wallwashers, floodlights, jelly jars and more — our experts create custom fixture designs that deliver on innovation, adding value and uniqueness to your project. Establishing an unforgettable lit environment and human experience is always our goal when we have the opportunity to design custom fixtures.
