Architectural Lighting

BAJAAO's approach to architectural lighting design focuses on three fundamental aspects of the illumination of buildings or spaces. The first is the aesthetic appeal of a building, an aspect particularly important in the illumination of retail environments. Secondly, the ergonomic aspect: the measure of how much of a function the lighting plays. Thirdly is the energy efficiency issue to assure that light is not wasted by over-illumination, either by illuminating vacant spaces unnecessarily or by providing more light than needed for the aesthetics or the task.

Each of these three aspects is looked at in considerable detail when the lighting designer is at work. In aesthetic appeal, the lighting designer attempts to raise the general attractiveness of the design, measure whether it should be subtly blended into the background or whether it should stand out, and assess what kind of emotions the lighting should evoke. The functional aspects of the project can encompass the need for the project to be visible (by night mostly, but also by day), the impact of daylight on the project and safety issues (glare, colour confusion etc).

The face of theatre and stage lighting is ever-changing. Our consultants stay on top of it so they can bring you cutting edge solutions. We were one of the first to use LED house lighting in a 600 seat state-of-the-art high school theatre in Rajasthan. Today's LED lighting is getting better by the day.

With several years of lighting design experience in theatres, television, churches and concerts, we understand that each project has its own needs. In some cases it’s about lighting for broadcast and IMAG, or even high-definition systems. Other venues need cost-effective special effects and high energy impact. Oftentimes it’s about basic systems for general purpose, educational resources or community theatre.

BAJAAO consultants welcome these challenges and treats each job as a separate project with its own personality. Position placement, angles, fixture choice, power indication, dimming requirements, rigging specs, distribution layout, detailed control systems and their interfaces are just a few of the many considerations for lighting system design.

Lighting systems have to be integrated with video, audio and acoustic systems, and aesthetics must be considered. We work to try and offer solutions to stage backgrounds and sets that can aid greatly in the overall lighting impact in a very cost- effective manner. Our group will work as a cohesive team to ensure the most dependable, safe and user-friendly design with continuity between all systems.

We are still out there today lighting concerts, broadcast productions, church platforms and theatrical stage shows. This keeps us up to date and in tune with the latest and greatest solutions in our industry.

We use the following critreria to ensure that our lighting design is perfectly suited to the design space.
