Energy and Environmental Building Alliance: High Performance Home Lighting for Health, Safety and Welfare

rockies63 | Posted in General Questions on

What is the easiest, cheapest method for dramatically improving the beauty, functionality and safety of your home?
Installing lighting fixtures that provide the best possible light in the correct layout within each room according to their functions.

Think about it – you’re already buying fixtures. You’ve already hired the electrician. All they are going to do is follow the lighting plan you give them or, God forbid, follow a bunch of “standard formulas” for layout  and light levels needed and you wind up with a poorly lit room that’s a pain to use and enjoy.

This lecture by Architect Doug Walter discusses what is really needed for beautiful, functional rooms. This is especially important for clients that plan on aging in place and need higher outputs of light in the correct places for safety.
