We collaborate with our clients to create elegant,
reliable and sustainable lighting solutions.
Expertise you can rely on.
We have a passion for sustainability and the experience to back it up. We have provided expertise for a wide variety of high-performance buildings, including more than 30 that have achieved LEED, Net Zero and Living Building ratings.
Dedicated to your vision.
From day one, we provide a transparent process for all team members. This integration results in dynamic idea sharing, effective collaboration and better buildings. Our participation through early-phase workshops and eco-charettes allows to bring daylight, electric light and the impact on the user experience into the discussion early in the process.
FLEXIBLE APPROACH, OPTIMAL SOLUTIONS
Our designs range from 100% day-lit spaces to bright and comfortable spaces using less than half the code-allowed lighting power density.
PERFECT BALANCE OF LIGHT AND POWER
We excel at bringing balance to the daylighting and electric lighting systems through lighting controls and integration with architectural form and function.
ELEGANT DESIGNS, REGARDLESS OF COMPLEXITY
Often the simplest solution is best, but we also design sophisticated control strategies that allow daylight and electric lighting to transition seamlessly from day to night.
Leading the way in sustainable lighting design.
Sustainability isn’t a catch phrase at Luma. It’s the way we live and work. Since 2001, we have been leaders in integrating sustainable practices into our designs and our work environment. Three quarters of our designers are LEED Accredited Professionals. Our office space is LEED Gold.
Through our holistic, innovative and meticulous approach, we maximize the use of sustainable lighting practices – meeting or exceeding the project’s goals and always catering to the human experience.
Harnessing the power of daylight.
When thinking about electric lighting, the most efficient fixture is the one that is off. When thinking about daylight, the most efficient fixture should be the building. Properly integrated top-lighting and side-lighting daylight strategies can provide 100% of the light needed in a space.
Daylight makes people happier, healthier and more productive and reduces the long-term costs of a building. Our designers have the knowledge and experience to aid you in developing tested and vetted strategies for bringing quality daylight into buildings, modeling the system and integrating the design strategies with other building systems.
