Harnessing the power of light

About

LUMA is a dedicated lighting-design service within PAE. We have direct access to experts in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, technology design, and building performance analysis. When more than lighting design is needed, we offer holistic, customizable, cross-discipline teams. This intimate collaboration of light, air, water, and information keeps us relevant and successful as we design some of the most sustainable buildings in the world. We cannot do it alone.

LUMA is part of PAE and PAE is a Just label and B Corporation.

Light is dynamic, ephemeral, mysterious, and beguiling.

Shaping and controlling light to provide positive, humanistic experiences in architecture has been at the core of our design practice since our founding in 2001. From simple daylit structures to highly integrated and interactive electric lighting and control systems, our designers employ design strategies and technologies that fit the unique requirements of each client. From concept to execution, our design process is highly collaborative, inherently sustainable, and more than a little fun.
