Consider it important that we first define what an organic lighting fixture style should mean:
“The construction of package custom lighting fixtures sharing expression of nostalgic and or natural environmental influences typically intimate to the architecture it resides, creating sound function, uniquely exclusive, defining equity, cost recovery, and energy savings”.
Would this define the lighting fixtures in your designed residence or commercial application?
The answer to this is sadly no most of the time. Urgency is typically required during construction, even if custom or green solutions where economically feasible. Early planning of your lighting fixture package should be just as important as other custom features in construction of a valued property.
The following are cost recovery facts when custom lighting fixtures are defined to the environment.
- Photometric equivalent custom lighting is energy efficient, and shares with in a group the defined organic styles thus anchoring long term value and energy dollar payback.
- Visual value or retained equity is paid back when a property is sold with organically designed architectural lighting.
- Reduced long-term interior or exterior maintenance and replacement typically required with mass-produced lighting fixtures.
- Organic or natural materials and finishing reduce pollution by limiting industrial waste typically required in mass production.
You may be deceived to believe that mass-produced lighting sold through design show rooms would meet the above, though repeated proof shows that long term sustainability, wear factors, and value in appearance continue to diminish.
These alone offset the nominal cost required with custom UL designed fixture types from Stonecreek Lighting by MCFelk L&D group.
