Lighting Design Alliance is a professional team that uses light as the basic element in the expression of architectural space. The company strives to heighten visual cues that the individual experiences within an environment and to manipulate perception to affect any of a number of intended psychological responses.

Using a variety of related knowledge, with lighting as the unifying element, appropriate solutions evolve naturally. Whether it is architectural accentuation, energy savings, dramatic effects, or just comfort, each project is evaluated for its unique creative opportunity.

Philosophically, the design intent is to create the proper environment by integrating the use of concealed light sources, natural light, and decorative fixtures. The careful integration of a collective design concept in every project guarantees success.
