Lighting plays an important role in how people perceive and understand architecture.
Even the simplest architectural solutions can be made unusual if you correctly design the illumination of the facade or its individual elements.

The aesthetic is where designers and architects focus on the emotional impact the balance of lighting and architecture will have on occupants. We want the lighting to look a certain way, but we have to also make sure it serves its most important purpose – to help us see. The final aspect is very important in today's age of green building and sustainability movements. It's one thing to create a breathtaking lighting layout, but it's another to create a breathtaking layout that is also incredibly energy efficient.
