Illuminate Lighting Design launch new San Francisco Studio

(USA) – The new San Francisco office is the second in North America and ninth studio globally for the company.

Illuminate Lighting Design, an award-winning international architectural lighting design consultancy and a division of the world’s leading hospitality interior design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), celebrated the opening of its new San Francisco studio this month.

The newly minted office builds on Illuminate’s already strong Bay Area presence and a recent win at the prestigious Illumination Engineering Society (IES)’s Illumination Merit Award for their work on BCCI Construction Company project on Battery Street in San Francisco.

“Illuminate complements the work of designers and architects by shaping the perception and experience of a space through the playful use of both natural and electric light,” said Nick Albert, Director of Illuminate. “Our continued growth and success in the US has driven the need for a second office to serve our clients stateside through a combination of local support and unparalleled global resources.”

This is the second studio in North America for Illuminate after Los Angeles, and its ninth globally. Established in 2009, Illuminate Lighting Design creates bespoke lighting schemes for renowned projects around the world.

Illuminate’s projects include LEED, Title 24, WELL and other energy efficient strategies as well as advanced lighting and daylight control systems and the application of media integrated lighting. The team aims to create spaces that can excite and inspire, as well as provide critical functionality and comfort for those who work, live and play within.
