e2 lighting design offers creative design, effective and concise lighting documentation for a successful lighting installation.
Since starting e2 lighting design in 2003, we have designed and managed a wide variety of projects including commercial, production and post-production spaces, residential, retail, places of worship, multi-unit dwellings, assisted living homes, building facades, and exterior landscapes. Our most recent projects include the lighting design for JPL’s Flight Projects Center, which received an IES Award of Merit 2009 for Energy and Environmental efficiency, and is certified LEED Gold; the Earthlink Bradley 2 Tenant Improvement certified LEED CI Silver; Intelligent Beauty Corporate Headquarters, a 2008 IES award of Merit project; Oceana Senior Living Facility, a targeted LEED Gold project; and Venice Beach Residence LEED Home.
We have made a conscious decision to create a broad based and project diverse lighting design firm, not specializing in one architectural niche. This diversity keeps the firm aware of all cutting edge lighting techniques and brings creativity and freshness to each project. When the client walks into a completed project and comments on the feel and atmosphere of the space without identifying any particular features, our job is complete. The design team worked together to create an environment where each design discipline is seamlessly integrated.
In addition to an accomplished commercial design portfolio, we have developed numerous residential projects treating the owner-clients to her comforting and efficient management style. Our residential design work ranges from ultra-modern to mountain lodge vernacular and are located throughout the west, including Los Angeles, Vail, Aspen, Telluride, and Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
