CS Design was formed in 2008 to fill the need for local, non-partial, lighting design consultation in the field of architecture. Approaching lighting design from the perspective of the architect, CS Design seeks to complement and elevate architectural designs with a simple and integrated approach. Our expertise includes electric lighting specification, custom fixture design, daylighting in buildings, and energy efficiency.
