Below are testimonials from clients and architects we have worked with.

“Fonterra Co-operative Group Limited worked closely with Switch on the design, development and deployment of the external-facing LED light arrangements on the new Fonterra Centre on Fanshawe St, Auckland.  Switch worked collaboratively with Fonterra to refine the solution, often working through several iterations of the design.  We appreciated the expertise and cost-effective approach delivered by Switch in ensuring we achieved the right external lighting outcomes.”

“Warren and Mahoney worked with Switch Lighting on the specialist lighting design of the Precinct Property’s ANZ Centre redevelopment in Auckland CBD. Omar’s ability to understand and engage with the architectural intent of the project resulted in very high quality design outcomes that enhanced the materials and spatial experience of the building’s new entry and public realm. His work also involved lighting design for the significant artworks incorporated into the project, including working directly with the artists to ensure the lighting design sensitively accentuated the impact of these works.”

“We worked with Omar from Switch to develop the lighting design for two high end residential projects. Omar collaborated closely with us to develop lighting design solutions for both that were integrated with the architecture and supported our minimalist approach to detailing. Omar’s thorough knowledge of the lighting available in the New Zealand market also ensured we were able to maintain high quality luminaires while saving our client money.”

“We had a specific feel we wanted to achieve in an apartment warehouse space which was lofty but cosy, Omar from Switch with his expertise in fixture placement and product selection for colour temperature and light output really achieved the effect we wanted. Omar brought to the table ideas and lighting concepts which were great to integrate, combining functionality with a bit of theatrics using high spot lights and pools of light, alongside soft lighting. We appreciate his collaborative and honest approach. It is evident he genuinely cares for an end result which responds to the brief and works best with the building.”

“One of the best things about our new house is the way it really comes alive at night, both inside and out, when the lighting takes effect. We always knew we wanted to invest in good quality lighting design to complement the architecture, but we were honestly blown away by what Omar helped us to achieve for the budget. We couldn’t be more thrilled.”
