Architectural Outdoor Lighting in New Irving Park, NC 27408.
PROJECT SUMMARY: The front elevation of the home was all this customer was interested in. Southern Lights choose to softly graze the brick work and highlight this homes architecture with beautiful outdoor lighting.
Even though this lighting design was simple, Southern Lights still spent time developing the layout and lighting design. During the design phase, Southern Lights provided the customer with additional lighting options that could be added onto down the road.
The goal with any outdoor lighting design is to capture the essence of the subject, (in this case, the home), for our clients, creating the most ideal landscape lighting effect.
LANDSCAPE LIGHTING FOCUS: The Brick work and architecture of the home was the main focus, along with some safety lighting at their front steps.
When talking with our clients, Southern Lights always tries to listen for what’s most important from our client’s perspective. In this case and in our company motto of (Safety. Security. SERENITY), All three of these focuses played an equal role in these lighting designs.
- Safety lighting was needed to address the elevation changes at the front entrance.
- Security lighting was needed to help illuminate a very dark home and provide reflective lighting back onto the front yard.
- SERENITY lighting is always needed to give the space and property a clean and natural design during evening hours.
- Brick Work on Home
- Front Walkway
- European Hornbeam Trees Flanking the Home
- Elevation Changes

LANDSCAPE LIGHTING DESIGN: Ideal landscape lighting should evoke Safety. Security. SERENITY and should always start with a design.

HURDLES TO OVERCOME: Designing an ideal landscape lighting system takes planning. Getting light to the right place takes some skill and time to coordinate installing wire to the desired fixture location.
Next to no hurdles on the outdoor lighting project. Many times, Southern Lights doesn’t have the opportunity to install outdoor lighting before the plants are installed creating additional challenges with fixture placement due to plants obstructing light. Southern Lights was fortunate on this project to be able to come in prior to plant installation and place fixtures in their perfect location. The plant material was then positioned around the outdoor lighting providing a better long term, lower maintenance need for pruning and light fixture relocation.
This client ultimately trusted Southern Lights with the lighting designs allowing us to provide them with the most ideal landscape lighting effect with the best lighting fixtures for the space and structures. We think it turned out pretty awesome!
