Exterior lighting design

Health and human-centric lighting

The designing process of health lighting is a sight in the future, the first step to forming a new outlook of human-centric lighting spaces creation and urban planning. The priority of this is environmental friendliness, safety, and comfort not only of man but also of local flora and fauna. All progressive humanity worried by negative influence of light pollution on health and 

forced migration of birds, animals, insects, etc. Such things imperceptibly but weighty change our world for the worse.

During the process of creating an architectural lighting project, TLC, pays attention to the principles of sustainable architecture and design not forgetting about state building codes and European standards. Those things reflect not only aesthetics but also emotional and physiological health.


Principles of exterior lighting design

The process of lighting design and selection of materials let us avoid a range of errors: extra brightness level, uncomfortable color temperatures, irregularity, blinding drivers and pedestrians on the street or adjacent territories.
The first step is an imitation of the environment: representation of buildings, roadways, and greenery, after all, light pollution has a negative impact on people, but also on the health and migration of animals and birds.
We start from the technical norms of state building codes and European, and international standards LEED and BREAM.
The final result is comfortable lighting, that aesthetically emphasizes the specifics of the infrastructural and architectural environment of the city.

Design stages

  • Concept development
  • 3D modeling
  • Visualization
  • Selection of equipment
  • Development of drawings (assembly diagrams)
  • Author’s or technical supervision of the installation

The difference between urban and suburban exterior lighting design

The biggest difference is a calculation of the brightness of the road surface. When urban road lighting is amplified by park lighting, suburban zones need the most integral material base. At the same time, light beam distributions elements should create high-quality lighting without any light pollution, overlight, or glare.

Conclusion: exterior lighting is a necessary part of the formation of healthy cities and long-distance infrastructure that directly affect the state of the environment. Our projects fully meet environmental/technical requirements and harmoniously complement the aesthetic component of the space.
