The holistic lighting approach puts the human experience at the center of the design. Seamless, brilliant, illuminated—with you at the source.
So much more than a house, your home is a carefully curated space that serves as a haven, a workspace, and a welcoming place to entertain friends and family. Just like finishes, fabrics, and technology, the lighting you choose reflects your unique aesthetic.
Light “influences how everything and everyone looks and feels in a space.” – USAI Lighting
The right color temperature can enhance the mood of a room or how you experience an activity: bright light reveals vibrant hues for preparing food in the kitchen, while warm light bathes the dining room in an intimate glow that encourages relaxation and conversation. Moreover, nuanced tones can highlight texture in textiles, display the purest colors in artwork, and add richness and depth to décor. Light transforms an ordinary room into an extraordinary embodiment of your vision.
A smart home has the capability to incorporate dynamic, responsive lighting. With a single touch on a tablet or a simple voice command, run a preset scene for family movie night. Or use spotlights and wall washes to highlight your art collection. But why stop there? Why not use light itself as beautiful art in your home?
Color tuning, warm dimming, and full-spectrum lighting combined with great lighting control allow interior designers to paint the room depending on the desired mood and what they want to achieve in the space. They can create artwork with light.
Lighting fixtures and lighting control are connected needs. An extension of the design aesthetic, lighting fixtures take center stage, while dimmers and controls should melt seamlessly into your décor. Together, they work as the controllable source of your light, and the quality of products used determines whether or not a design is successful.
“The architectural and design community knows that poor products with lighting can hurt a design. Lighting is the second most important design aspect besides the actual layout of a space.” – Jarrod Fox, Manager of Architectural Lighting at Acoustic Architects
Human beings are biologically programmed to respond to sunlight, both the increase and decrease of it, and all levels in between. Circadian cycles mimicked by dynamic lighting help us sleep more deeply, wake up feeling more refreshed, and be our most productive throughout the day. Warm-glow dimming preserves the quality of natural light, allowing it to grow more amber in color—warmer—as it dims. Tunable white lighting technology allows complete control over color temperature and intensity.
As the data continues to grow, lighting fixtures and design evolve to enhance overall health and wellness, bringing the benefits of natural light inside. Human-centric design creates a habitable art space, while elevating daily work and quality of life.
“Lighting is so integral to the overall aesthetic. You can have the most beautiful layout and furnishings, but the wrong lighting can negatively impact all the hard work.”– Jarrod Fox, Acoustic Architects
When everything is composed together from the beginning—concept, design, and development—the result is a visual symphony with your entire home in harmony.
Lighting consultants, designers and architects rely on each other to succeed. When everyone sits down to work on your plan together, it brings your vision to light—literally.
Responsive Living, the term coined by Acoustic Architects founders, Aaron Flint and Spencer Hauldren, is the concept of seamlessly enhancing the client’s unique lifestyle using smart home technology. Responsive Living allows you to interact with your space via touch input, voice command, and predictive automation, placing you in full control of your home.
