As the Principal of e2 lighting design, Erin Erdman is involved in all phases of a project, from schematic design through construction and post-occupancy. Her primary focus is to achieve the highest quality illuminated environments through effective communication with Clients and Design Teams to simultaneously meet the Architect’s aesthetic desires, programmatic requirements, and lighting budget.
Since starting e2 lighting design in January 2004, she has 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, theatrical spaces, and exterior landscapes.
She has 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.
In addition to an accomplished commercial design portfolio, she has developed numerous residential projects. Her residential design work ranges from ultra-modern to mountain lodge vernacular with projects across California and throughout the United States.
Erin is a graduate of the University of Colorado’s Architectural Engineering program, which is a nationally renowned institution for lighting education. She is a Professional Member of the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) and a member of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES).
