Founded by S. Leonard Auerbach in 1972, Auerbach Glasow is one of the leading architectural lighting design and consulting firms in practice today. Working both internationally and locally, Auerbach Glasow’s project designs include interior and exterior environments for residential and hospitality venues, commercial and institutional buildings, as well as cultural and educational facilities.
Well-versed in sustainability and energy efficiency, Auerbach Glasow’s work incorporates the most stringent energy requirements, including ASHRAE/IESNA 90.1, International Energy Conservation Code standards, the U.S. Green Building Council LEED rating system and California Title 24. The firm’s experience with integrating electric light and daylight enhances the ability to provide sustainable solutions in collaboration with the architectural team. The firm can provide sun angle/shadow studies, shading or glazing information or work with a specialty daylighting consultant, bringing years of lighting expertise to the development of an overall daylighting strategy.
We use light to define space and to enhance the viewer’s sense of environmental integrity, blending lighting design and daylighting with the mechanics of light source location, fixture distribution, intensity, control, maintenance and energy consumption. Our team’s designs emphasize aesthetic considerations of perceived brightness, color, comfort and glare, focus and direction, assimilation of natural light and the day/night transition of the environment.
Auerbach Glasow’s hundreds of successful projects, numerous awards and long term client relationships, are the results of a client-centered philosophy that drives consistently superior design and technologically sophisticated solutions.
Auerbach Glasow provides expertise in all aspects of lighting design. We employ advanced solutions that translate architectural intent into beautiful, functional and easily maintained lighting installations. Sustainability and energy efficiency are fundamental to our design work. Every project is led by one of our expert principals supported by a staff of experienced designers and managers.
