Way out West – Light Project launches in WA


Perth is leading the way in lighting and design innovation. Light Project is the most recent addition to the rapidly growing industry in the west, bringing our well-known brand and trusted architectural lighting solutions direct to the Western Australian market.

Working closely with architecture and design professionals, lighting designers and engineers on a varied range of projects, Light Project has opened at an opportune time in Perth. With a number of outstanding WA design firms already setting the tone for innovation in architecture and lighting design both nationally and overseas, Light Project joins this fast developing community in Australia’s western most state.

“The growth in the architectural and hospitality industry over here is at an all-time high,” says Claire Parker, Creative Director of Light Project Perth and herself a passionate lighting professional. “These are the areas we can really add value to clients as this is where our experience and product portfolio really align,” she says.

Working alongside Claire in WA is David Lim, an interior designer with specialist lighting knowledge.

Together the pair has worked on an impressive portfolio of projects including The Old Treasury Building, Crown Towers façade, Ritz Carlton, and Claire’s personal favourite – The City of Perth Library.

Designing in Perth, according to Claire, is all about lifestyle. “Where we can, we take in the endless blue skies and surf, and enjoy alfresco entertainment.” Light Project endeavours to bring these elements into all of our local designs, in both commercial and residential ventures. The only challenge the Light Project team faces is maintaining design intent and quality while working to allocated budgets, says Claire. It’s a challenge that she and the Light Project team enjoys.

“Australia is one of the world leaders in creating energy efficient legislation,” says Claire. “Lighting has evolved dramatically with LED and solid state electronics technology, and is now becoming interlinked with control systems through WiFi and Bluetooth.” This technology is capable of so much more than just switching lights on and off. With the rapid growth in this area, the opportunities for the industry are exponential, heralding, as Claire says, “very exciting times ahead”.
