thomas gravanis lighting architects
L+DG . Thomas Gravanis Lighting Architects was created in 1998 and today is considered an established Architectural Lighting consultancy with a noteworthy portofolio of projects. For more than 15 years, founder Mr. Thomas Gravanis has been active in the field of lighting design and has participated in numerous projects for a variety of clients.
Lighting design aims at its heart to create pleasant and memorable spaces for the people who work, visit or move through them. The basic principles that we employ are integration of design with architectural intent, prudent use of new technologies, artful design detailing, respect for the client’s requirements and specifications and environmental integrity. Apart from architectural lighting our scope of work also includes lighting strategies for master-planning, environmental design and entertainment/event lighting. Furthermore, we also study and consult on daylight adequacy and sunlight penetration issues.
Personal involvement by a dedicated team in each project guarantees to our clients the value and consistency of our contribution. All our designs are guided by a core set of architectural, environmental and lighting principles and our output, in the form of drawings, schedules or specifications, is attentive to the particular requirements of each project.
Our design work is completely detached from the procurement of any kind of equipment like luminaires and other lighting control systems. We work independently from any manufacturer or supplier of light fittings and gear. This is crucial for the quality and objectivity of design as it is never influenced or compromised by any commercial interest and is therefore always subject to the client’s requirements and desires.
Apart from the significant portfolio of domestic projects, in recent years our practice has increased its involvement in notable international projects in Cyprus, India, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
Today L+DG . Thomas Gravanis Lighting Architects is comprised by 10 members that come from different backgrounds like architecture, lighting design, interior and industrial design, economics and marketing, working in a new office space at Kolonaki in Athens designed inhouse.
Lately, due to the numerous international collaborations, we decided to open an office in London. Our office is located in Holborn area, in a green featured building, and there we can meet up with all our colleagues. Thomas M. Gravanis is responsible for the office.
