OUR SERVICES

Architectural Lighting Design

 

We offer lighting design services for various sizes and types of projects such as:

 

- Public Facility (Civic, Transportation, Library, Museum)

- Office and Retail (Office Tower Facade, Shopping Mall)

- Hospitality (Hotel, Resort)

- Residential (Private Residence, Condominium)

- Landscape and Exterior (Park, Bridge, Monument)

- Lighting Masterplan (City, Town, Street)

- Temporary Project (Event, Exhibition)

 

The following principles are applied to every project, and we provide tailored solutions to unique opportunities and challenges in each project.

 

INVISIBLE LIGHT FIXTURE

Light fixtures should not be seen. What is to be seen is the space and people.

 

NO GLARE

We are obsessed with the word 'glare-less'. We design space filled with soft lighting that is visually comfortable.

 

RIGHT AMOUNT OF LIGHT AT RIGHT LOCATION

We believe in the value of NOT over-lighting. Light should be placed strategically and selectively to create a visual hierarchy.

 

DYNAMIC

Natural light changes all the time. Lighting should never be static and fixed but dynamic and flexible.

 

MAINTAINABILITY

We do not design for completion day. We develop simple lighting solutions that can be maintained and enjoyed for many years.

Our services are provided according to the phases described below:

 

1. CONCEPT DESIGN

We hear from the architect to understand the space, and we hear from the user to understand operational requirements. The surrounding lighting environment of the project location is studied. Based on the understanding and findings, we look for a simple and robust concept unique to each project. In this phase, we produce a concept design booklet including hand sketches, CG renderings, physical models and reference photos.

 

2. DOCUMENTATION

Drawings and specifications are developed to achieve the approved lighting concept. Details are coordinated with the architect and other consultants, and further refined by calculating illuminance level, studying maintenance method, and estimating cost. In this phase, a complete lighting design package including lighting layouts, mounting details, specifications, control system specification and operation schedule are delivered.

 

3. TENDER / PROCUREMENT PHASE

We recommend lighting suppliers who can be invited to tender for the project. We assist the quantity surveyor in preparation of materials for calling tender. We evaluate tender submissions on technical aspects as well as price. We arrange tender interviews for necessary clarifications. A tender recommendation report is provided for client's decision.

 

4. SITE SUPERVISION

We conduct a briefing for the installer to understand the design intent and requirements. We check and approve lighting fixture samples and shop drawings, monitor the installation and issue site instructions. We plan lighting mock-ups to check lighting effect where necessary. Right before completion of the project, final lighting adjustment works such as focusing and setting of lighting control system are done.

INTERACTIVE LIGHTING INSTALLATION

We design interactive (light) art for architecture. We can be engaged as an artist to create a feature wall, feature entrance or feature facade element that adds value and attractiveness to space.

Refer to INTERACTIVE for more information.

VISUAL CONTENT PRODUCTION

We design contents for media facade and architectural LED display. Refer to VISUAL for more information.

LIGHT ART & EVENT

Our team works with communities to organize workshops and create lighting installations for events.

Refer to EVENT for more information.

Nipek is an independent design company whose income is derived purely from the professional service fee.

We have no commercial allegiances with lighting suppliers and lighting manufacturers. We work entirely for the benefit of our clients.

 

Our directors are members of International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD), and we strictly follow the IALD's Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct to maintain the highest level of professional practice.
