Get Blue and Go Home: The Practical Application of Neuroscience in Architectural Lighting at Home


Published on

Great residential lighting still means providing the right glare-free light for every task, illuminating art and architectural features, and those special effects that contribute so much to life at home. Stringent energy requirements mean solid state LEDs are a must, displacing nearly all other light sources. What separates a good application from a great one is the quality of the material, color, and the subtlety of its integration. Luminous spaces affect people on many levels, and while lighting is not medicine, research shows it has physiological effects. This workshop will offer techniques, tricks and tips for best results
