Subtlety and complexity

We employ thinkers from backgrounds of Architecture,
Interior Design and the Theatre to enable us to create each
design individually suited to its own variables of space,
surface and the time.

David Skelley

David Skelley formulates and develops our design strategies both at a philosophical and project level across both offices. He directs us toward creation of innovative, quality design solutions.

David studied at Victoria University and graduated in 1981 with a Bachelor degree in Building Science and Honours degree in Architecture. His architecture and design background enables him to immediately grasp spatial design concepts. This ability, coupled with technical knowledge, allows him to conceive and develop lighting strategies which enhance buildings and landscapes in new and exciting ways.

David’s experience spans four continents: North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. This background offers a unique advantage – the translation of global knowledge and design trends into the local ethos.His work has been published in magazines all over the world and has won many commendation awards for lighting.

He is registered as an architect in Australia and New Zealand. He has served on juries of the Australian Design Council awards program and the Illuminating Engineers Society Lighting Design Awards program. To pass on the knowledge learnt from his experience, David has also taught lighting design at the University of Technology, Sydney.
