SEE THE LIGHT
“Lighting Design is an Art form blending Layers of Light with Color Temperatures and Automated Controls to enhance our natural Circadian Rhythms. When it is done properly, your senses are excited, and positive emotions are ELEVATED.” – Glenn Merlin Johnson

Circadian Rhythms are the natural lighting effects based on the 24-hour clocks illumination from the sun at various times of the day and the moon and stars at night. For optimal wellness, proper interior lighting is essential in matching the times of day as to not, throw the system off-kilter. Daylight sensors and automation can adjust the various layers for those effects.
Architects plan a home’s directional placement based on maximizing views from inside-out, as well as evaluating the positioning of the rising and setting of the sun. As the day progresses, the natural light emitted by the sun changes in color, angle, and intensity. A circadian lighting system can be designed to mimic that progression and help to optimize focus, creativity, and productivity.
Lighting Design professionals evaluate these items as well in addition to planning all of the interior lighting effects. Adaptive Design Group Inc. has trademarked the 8 Layers of Lighting coupled with dimming and automation to maximize the overall living experiences. The ADAPTIVE Method® is an acronym for eight layers of light.
Exterior and Landscape elements are an extension of the interior of a home. Planned artistic lighting not only covers the aesthetics and safety in accentuating planting, pathways, and staircases but also draws the eye through the windows at night and increases security by not allowing dark hiding spots for trespassers. Motion controls, time clocks, and dimming are all critical design elements for the exterior.
