Public Realm Lighting Design

Public Realm

Lighting transforms the outdoor public realm at night creating comfortable and attractive spaces that people can enjoy after sunset. Clanton & Associates designs lighting for streetscapes and outdoor public spaces that strike a balance of aesthetic character with responsibility to the environment and human health. We collaborate with our clients and design team to ensure that the unique goals of each individual project are met and that our public spaces meet their full potential. Our project experience includes designing lighting, electrical, and controls for streetscapes, town squares, pedestrian malls, landscape features, architectural facades, custom lighting, historic restoration, public art, bridges, roadways, and parking areas.
