ALFATECH Lighting Studio

Balancing occupant experience with efficiency, AlfaTech Lighting Studio takes a holistic approach to lighting design. From generating a basis of design through construction documents to post occupancy. AlfaTech Lighting Studio applies daylighting strategies and prioritizes sustainability and energy-efficient technologies.

LIGHTING STUDIO AlfaTech’s Lighting Studio provides aesthetically pleasing and sustainable design solutions for some of the world’s most complex and high-performing buildings. AlfaTech Lighting Studio brings a creative spirit to each project. We work closely with clients to gain an understanding of project requirements and goals. The Lighting Studio works with the design team to chart the best course based on our client’s objectives, the architect’s design, building systems, facility operational strategies, sustainability goals, and energy efficiency. Every building is unique, each having its own aesthetic and operational preferences. Lighting Studio considers preferences with great attention and detail. We are well-versed in coordinating with a range of consultants handling mechanical, electrical, plumbing, acoustical, structural, landscape, civil, security, and signage. The Lighting Studio possesses a wide range of project experience, offering a range of design and analytical services supporting a project from beginning to post-occupancy. Services include schematic daylighting design studies, facility orientation, and daylighting modeling to yield favorable LEED accreditation outcomes. AlfaTech Lighting Studio delivers solutions to address a range of goals, reducing energy consumption by harvesting daylight. Our Lighting Studio aims to delight occupants by bringing the daylight into a space by evenly distributing light while mitigating glare by considering how the eye adapts. We believe design should seamlessly transition from daylight to electric lighting, dynamically considering the sun’s rotation as it engages with a space. Our approach ensures a stimulating space that plays with light and shadow. Additionally, outdoor views have positive effects. Lighting Studio values and brings a biophilic design connecting occupants with nature. DESIGN THAT PLAYS WITH DAYLIGHT AND CONNECTS WITH NATURE


AlfaTech Lighting Studio engages daylighting model software to provide visual representations of how daylight will impact a facility. These images allow more informed design decision-making. Our clients expect floor plan calculation points and renderings to gain a better sense of light distribution. Lighting Studio provides floor plans, 3D views, and sectional perspectives to gain an insight into how daylight affects the space.

ALFATECH Project Experience

ALFATECH Notable Projects

Lucas Museum of Narrative Arts

Los Angeles, CA


New Construction 360,000 SF

The Lucas Museum was conceived with the bold ambition to challenge the way our societies appreciate art museums. Inspired by its resolute mission, the engineering design blasted off with the vision to deliver a lasting, centenarian building in harmony with its site. The carbon zero design harnessed heat and cooling from the soil beneath the museum with over 700 vertical bores. This constituted the deep earth, pulsating aorta of the geothermal field. A second element of nature was introduced by way of a thermally active water pond, which increased the site’s innate cooling capacity. These features were modulated by the high-efficiency, heat recovery central plant that provided all-electric, simultaneous heating and cooling (and no gas-fired boilers). Environmental quality for prime spaces – galleries, state of the art theaters, and lobbies – were controlled with underfloor air-distribution and radiant floors. Smart controls gently nudged temperature and ventilation parameters to adjust to visitors’ comfort. The superstructure lifted off with an exterior façade that self-shaded the thermal shell, effectively reducing cooling demand. Curved onyx glass organically traced the rooftop which formed the solar PV field. At 365 kW capacity, the renewable energy source reduced an estimated 10-15% of the electricity demand and swung the carbon footprint negative. Ahead of its time, the Lucas Museum will open the doors as an eco-friendly, ‘net zero energy’-ready museum that gives back to the surrounding community.

Grauman’s Chinese Theatre

Hollywood, CA

TYPE: SIZE: 1,000,000 SF

Historical, Tenant Improvement

This project is a striking example of the creative renovation of a historical building to provide the amenities necessary to continue to attract visitors. The project consisted of a seismic structural upgrade and numerous renovations. The seating was replaced, a new state-of-the-art sound system and movie screen were installed, a new projection booth constructed, and the lobby, exterior facade and forecourt were renovated. New lighting was installed in the forecourt area to enhance the renowned hand and footprints embedded in concrete. This was a unique and challenging project as we were charged with designing significant systems upgrades within a strict budget while maintaining the historical nature of the building. One of the most significant challenges was the upgrade of life-safety systems within the building. Built in 1927, this landmark theatre is an opulent, awe-inspiring presence that has been a cornerstone of Hollywood’s history for over 75 years. As a reminder of the Golden Age of Hollywood and location of preference for prestigious premieres, it remains a world-famous attraction that draws thousands of visitors each year.

Los Angeles International Airport, Terminal 1

Los Angeles, CA


Tenant Improvement 346,000 SF

This is a total renovation of Terminal 1 at the Los Angeles International Airport. The terminal’s entrance, ticket counters, and Skycap operations were moved from the east end of the building to the west side to ease traffic congestion a problem motorists frequently encounter when entering the central terminal area at peak travel times. A reprogrammed departures and arrivals level will feature a “Lobby of the Future,” which includes self check-in and self-tag bag drop kiosks, a 12-lane security screening checkpoint, two large bag claim devices, and a high-speed in-line screening baggage handling system. Combined, these features will make departure and arrivals systems more balanced and efficient both curbside and within the terminal. Once through security, passengers will experience a bright, modern concourse. Twelve gates will have new, enlarged hold rooms with integrated concessions and passenger amenities. An additional 25,000 SF of retail and dining space will feature a variety of finishing materials and sculpted facades, nearly doubling the current concessions area.
