Low Voltage Outdoor Lighting – Northwest Style

People living in the Northwest are unique. We have a unique appreciation for the environment. We are fortunate to live close to the mountains as well as the ocean. We have countless outdoor recreation opportunities. Every year we experience the glory of all four seasons. Because of the dramatic change of seasons we learn to be very sensitive to our surroundings. As we transition from the long days of summer to the short days of winter we realize that more than anything we are sensitive to light.

Northwest Style Lighting recognizes the unique relationship that North westerners have to their environment. We design our systems to enhance rather than compete with nature. Because the only natural sources of light are the sun and the moon, our lighting systems always have a strong emphasis on down lighting. We also utilize back lighting opportunities as this the only other natural lighting effect. We balance our designs with interesting focal point lighting, architectural lighting, safety and security lighting, bridge lighting, and sparkle. This is a very creative process that involves extensive interaction with the client. The end result is a highly effective, energy efficient, and environmentally sensitive “Quiet Light.”

We utilize the highest quality fixture and power-center options from Nightscaping. Nightscaping invented low-voltage outdoor lighting and continues to be the leader and the greatest innovator in this industry. Their transformers carry a lifetime warranty, and their fixtures carry at least a ten year warranty.

This partnership also gives us a preferred relationship with the factory. When it comes to technical support, custom orders, customer service, warranty, and design issues the factory backs us 100%.
