WHAT WE ARE
NEW URBAN VIEW is an independent lighting design and consultancy office. Our designs can either be emphasising the beauty of exisiting architecture like of a medieval monument. Respecting its cultural heritage value, not adding that much. Just adding a fantastic 3-D experience.
Or our designs can be adding a whole new perception of a commercial building that needs to be more attractive to customers. Or a traffic tunnel trespassers will be lured to pass through and feel more safely. Moreover, we can serve you with full contracting responsibility for the realisation of the design.
OUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
Enlighting the object as an essential element in its environment. We know how to respect the value of darkness. This philosophy creates a dramatic, theatrical effect. We focus on the details which matter. The sum of details create the typical NEW URBAN VIEW design.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
By interactive sessions with customer and stakeholders, all necessary input for a design is obtained. All the wishes and the constraints. With this approach, a custom made design is made. Our drive is to surprise our customer. Two or more sketch drawings will be presented to decide about. The selected design will then be worked out in a very high quality rendered 3-D visual. What You See Is What You Get. To be used for marketing purposes or to inform stakeholders. With the design comes a complete material order list. This is special about the NEW URBAN VIEW approach. The design is then regarded as a completed order and invoiced. The customer has full freedom to contract the realisation with an installation company he prefers. However, we need to monitor the execution in order to guarantee the design quality.
We do take full contracting responsibility for the realisation of the project as well. The installation services are preferably subcontracted to a local company with experience in outdoor or indoor lighting installations with or without interactive, dynamic lighting control systems.
