CS Design was formed in 2008 to fill the need for responsive, non-partial, lighting design consultation in the field of architecture. Approaching lighting design from the perspective of the architect and the designer, CS Design seeks to complement and elevate architectural designs with a simple and integrated approach.
CS Design is active in architecture and interiors projects ranging from high end residential to institutional and commercial building. Project experience in urban design and exterior illumination broadens our field of expertise. From specialized local installations to large scale project coordination, we bring technical design and project management skills to bear on all aspects of lighting, materials choice, detailing, and controls.
CS Design welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with architects, designers, engineers and planners. Complementing the skills of core team members, we offer various services to perfect building lighting and streamline project delivery, such as lighting and control design, fixture specification, detail integration, lighting calculations, budget estimates, installation coordination and commissioning and focus. CS Design offers expertise in the following project areas:
INSTITUTIONAL / CULTURAL VENUES / CORPORATE + COMMERCIAL / RETAIL / RESIDENTIAL / URBAN SPACES / HISTORIC + HERITAGE
