Defining a project through a series of manageable steps generates a reliable design process. This is a complicated yet dependable approach allowing a project to be handled in a professional way. In some senses the evolution of a design process for an architectural lighting project is similar to the education of a human being. Moving forward step by step through the accumulation of information in a series of successive layers to creates a trained professional person. JVL Studio method in this way formulates a human centric lighting approach in the center of its design in every phase of the design process.
Lighting projects start with the concept phase to define the project and its needs. JVL has a number of tools and methods available during the concept phase; analysis, research, brainstorming, inspirations, photos, refining feedback from other parties, sketching and preparing visuals showing the different lighting concepts for the project. These are all possible parts of the first steps of the design process creating excitement and expectation.
In the next phase of schematic and design detail with the tender documentation stages, the evolution of the process will reach a more structured level in preparation for fabrication and construction. Schematic phase design provides more details about the lighting design and the design detail phase structures the lighting design with a number of components.
The remarkable difference in the service offering of the JVL Studio can be seen in the construction stage and the final commission. Here, what makes the difference is the special services or documents prepared at several design process levels that helps most of the parties of the project at these stages understand and define the individual components that make the whole.
This difference is not only relevant for the project team; the design process has its impact on the end user in terms of human centric lighting and the comfort and ease of the lighting controls. In this way the process attains its goals in an effective way. For more details please visit the stages of design process.
