We provide architectural lighting design to architects, interior designers, art galleries, museums, manufacturers, and others who share a passion for lighting and the lit environment. While most of our work is in support of art collections and the buildings that house them, we are interested in any project that pushes the limits of creativity and design.

Brian Hood has had a lifelong fascination with lighting and light. He built his first custom lighting fixtures in 1977, began designing and installing lighting for art collections and art installations in 1980, and has been involved in dozens of challenging lighting projects throughout the United States and Asia. His current primary interest is the integration of lighting and architecture in the most effective and subtle manner.

Joel Severud, an architect with 20 years design experience, joined the team in 2010. Always striving to achieve the sweet spot between energy efficiency and effective lighting, Joel is passionate about purposeful, highly crafted & integrated design solutions.

Lindsey Arvan joined the team in 2014. With a B.A. in Interior Design from Washington State University, she brings a passion for design and for creating unique design solutions that maximize the potential of a space, both aesthetically and functionally.
