AKLD: Anne Kustner Lighting Design
In the past, it has been considered a luxury to have lighting design professionals as part of the core design team. However, now more than ever, with constantly evolving technologies, the use of lighting controls, stricter codes and regulations, along with economic and environmental considerations, a lighting designer has become a key part of a complete design team. The AKLD team approaches each project as being unique with specific requirements. We tailor our design approach to the project at hand and find the most appropriate, creative, energy efficient, and easy to maintain lighting solution. Our clients benefit from our designers’ experience and education in architectural engineering, theatrical lighting, interior design and fine arts. Established in 1994, Anne Kustner Lighting Design (AKLD) has successfully designed more than 1,000 architectural lighting design and lighting control system projects in a wide range of applications and environments. Our completed projects include lighting specifications for education, municipal projects, corporate offices, retail, high-end residences, museum/galleries, restaurants, churches, libraries, schools, and exterior/landmark lighting. As independent consultants affiliated with the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD), AKLD accepts no fees from manufacturers or suppliers of equipment and is, therefore, free to recommend the best lighting solution tailored specifically to your project.
