Visual design flair is coupled with sound technical knowledge to produce well considered schemes that will provide many years of reliable service.

As a small client focused practice we are able to undertake projects of any size or type with flexibility and an ability to respond quickly to the needs of the project and our clients. We believe that lighting is an integral part of any design and will work with other design team members to ensure our work is properly integrated and enhances the project to its maximum potential.

All projects are undertaken with sensitivity and care Graham Festenstein Lighting Design has extensive experience with listed buildings, ancient monuments and the lighting of conservation items.

As a practice we are committed to the creative use of lighting as a means to enhance the urban environment. Well-considered and integrated lighting encourages the use of our public spaces by night, increases the perception of public safety and shows our architecture and cultural heritage as it should be seen as well as adding visual drama and excitement to the nightscape.

As an independent consultancy we are not linked in any way to particular manufacturers or suppliers. Design work is focused on the needs of the project and the client. The most appropriate products specified from the widest range of manufacturers and suppliers. This gives the freedom to ensure the best, most innovative and exciting lighting can be attained on any project for the budget available. As well as a full design service we can provide technical consultancy for our clients, designers or artists to help to transform concepts into finished work.
