Housing + Homes
When designing a multi-family residential project many factors need to be taken into consideration including a rich amenities offering, project budget, developer goals, architectural vision, market needs, facility maintenance, and building longevity. The lighting designer is an essential part of a project’s success, juggling technical aesthetics and financial considerations to achieve all stakeholder project goals. Using various project examples, this presentation will cover lighting design strategies (including product knowledge, buying and purchasing power, technology integration, etc.) for building amenities, circulation, outdoor spaces, and residential units. The designers will discuss trends and techniques for understanding the market, challenges and solutions encountered through their experience on over 20 multi-residential projects, and the steps needed to create a lighting design that supports the building’s design and desirability.
