Retail Lighting Design

At the core of our practice is our ability to fully understand our clients’ needs and work with them to push the boundaries of their spaces and architecture.

Nowhere is this more evident than in our retail lighting design portfolio, where we have an enviable list of high-profile clients who rely on us to enhance their stores and merchandise through our detailed and fresh approach to lighting. Our expertise enables clients to improve their retail spaces in many ways.

Multi-faceted lighting design

LED lighting has become an ever-increasing method of reducing retail energy bills, with retailers committing to sustainability through the use of LED technology. LED luminaires eliminate glare with cutting edge optics, contributing to an overall improved store environment and aesthetic. Our expert consultants utilise intelligent design to create uncluttered ceilings, enhancing architectural form and producing a multi-layered visual experience where seamless luminaire integration and control complements dramatic accent lighting.

Our team of retail lighting design specialists consider every aspect of a retail property. Retail window displays for example require dramatic, precise lighting in order to make the most of the merchandise collections on offer, yet often have to compete with daylight at the same time. Transitional spaces, entrances and vertical circulation zones on the other hand have illumination criteria that can vary greatly, so each retailer will have a different vision as to how these spaces should look and feel.

Fitting rooms are an often-overlooked but are a critically important aspect of a retailer’s property. LAPD are constantly researching fitting room lighting. In particular, we evaluate the best techniques and technologies to give our clients confidence that their fitting rooms will assist in driving sales.

Light levels vary between retailers and even departments within the same store. Aspects such as target demographics and key merchandise lines can define the optimum lit environment. We strive to create sales floor lighting layouts and control schemes that give the retailer maximum versatility, allowing them to alter their store layouts freely in the knowledge that the lighting can easily adapt with them.

Quality of light

Paramount in retail lighting design is the quality of the emitted light. Colour temperature stability, excellent colour rendering and flicker-free operation are cornerstones of high performance LEDs. Our designers are always delving into LED specifications to create luminaire packages that exceed client expectations and improve customers’ perception.

Our lit retail environments blend technical prowess with creativity and flair, therefore making sure that our clients are 100% satisfied.
