SEEKING EXCELLENCE
IN LIGHTING FOR A VARIETY
OF APPLICATIONS

Lighting has an impact on various aspects such as security, safety, economy, health, environment, comfort, social and cultural concerns. It is therefore important to consider these different aspects in order to ensure the viability and success of the projects. The Ombrages Group has received awards from organizations and associations as the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America -IESNA-, Dark-Sky, Darc Awards, Montreal Design Grand Prix, International Illumination Design Award -IIDA-, Canadian Society of Landscape Architects -CSLA-, Hydro-Qu├ębec and the Urban Development Institute of Quebec-IDU-, that attest the quality of the Ombrages Group lighting design projects.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL, TECHNOLOGICAL
AND SOCIO-CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT

Environmental, technological and social issues have become primary considerations in projects. The protection of the starry sky, the fauna and flora, and the questions of negative impacts on health are all concerns for stakeholders. The evolution of technologies has led us to rethink processes and implementation but also lighting needs. The well-being of the users remains at the heart of our process. We believe that lighting contributes to improve aesthetics, increases the visual comfort, and aids in mobility with the ultimate goal to achieve a better quality of life.
