Horton Lees Brogden Lighting Design
The firm of Horton Lees Brogden Lighting Design was founded in 1968 by Jules Horton, one of the true pioneers in the field of architectural lighting design. In 1984, we opened our San Francisco office to better serve our projects and clients on the west coast. In 1994 HLB opened our Los Angeles office, and in 2007 we expanded our practice to Boston. Today HLB Lighting Design is an internationally recognized design firm with nine principals and a diversely talented team of designers and technical experts. A key to our successful growth has been to cultivate leadership within the firm, so that our principals and senior staff share a common company culture and vision. We rely on four key words to do so:
Growth | Balance | Energy | Passion
We believe that these are facets of light and life.
At HLB, our practice is guided by the idea that clients expect superior service in addition to design creativity and technical expertise. One of the ways we achieve this is by leveraging the benefits of multiple office locations. Our four offices allow us to "think globally and act locally", that is we can provide a valuable local presence and availability to clients and projects backed by the resources and experience of the entire firm. The four studios collaborate on projects and share insights, resources, and above all, maintain the consistent design philosophy we strive for in our firm. At the same time, each studio possess its own character and a complete balance of skills.
In addition to cross-office collaboration on design projects, we support and encourage a sense of "one firm" through our retreats. These company-wide getaways have become a wonderful forum for everyone in the firm to get to know one another and have a say in "big picture" decisions. Our retreats serve to reinforce our corporate culture and keep the focus on our strengths:
People | Experience | Creativity | Quality | Service
