How To Design Your Outdoor Lighting System

Sun Valley and US Arch Lighting have a 4 STEP process to design your outdoor lighting called SAS POP where:

SA stands for Style of Architectural

S stands for Sparkle Bling

P stands for Proportion which you can think of as Scale and

OP stands for Optical Performance

Let’s go thru these one at a time. First, select the style from your architecture Super important step that Connects the fixture appearance (Day-form) to your site and its architectural elements, for example select:

  • Neoclassical
  • Victorian
  • American Traditional
  • Contemporary
  • Transitional
  • Modern

We have a product for your Architectural Style.

Second: Sparkle or Bling: ie Select whether you are looking for Jewelry as a focal point that draws attention like a diamond necklace on a model or would you prefer to add Make-Up that blends-in and disappears, enhancing your site but not drawing attention to itself?

Third: P Proportion or Scale You will want to carry your design elements through as you move away from the site and as you increase elevation. Think wall mounted sconces on the building, bollards along your approach pathway and the path of egress, pedestrian scale post tops on the campus and large formatted scale for your parking lots.

Ask yourself, Do the products that you select offer you the flexibility for proper proportion?
