“Historic Alexandria,” as it is known far and wide, comes by its reputation honestly. The Virginia city and surrounding neighborhoods maintain an architectural reverence for the past, yet glean a modern sensibility from its proximity to the hustling D.C. Metro area.
But whether you live in the historic district or in a newly-built luxury development, the single detail that adds value, beauty and security to any home is, undeniably, exterior lighting.
Of course, the most prominent feature of any estate is the residence itself. Whether your home is a classic from the Georgian Revival period or a modern eco-conscious gem, it possesses unique features you’ll be eager to play up. Illuminate historic columns near your entryway, perhaps, or the rustic exterior or a striking two-chimney roofline. The Outdoor Lighting Perspective designers will recommend optimal placement and styles for well-lights, porch sconces, coach lights and other key features of exterior lighting.
You shouldn’t have to abandon the recreational amenities of your property when the sun goes down. Outdoor illumination provides a safe way to enjoy decks, wraparound porches, garden rooms, pools, patios, tennis courts and other outdoor features. Our lighting design pros place a premium on lighting that doesn’t just strike the right mood at night, but also provides well-lit, secure outdoor dining and activity areas — as well as the walkways leading to them.
The greater Alexandria area is known for its natural beauty, with its neighborhoods incorporating wooded lots, gently rolling lawns and flowering shrubbery, to name just a few features. Those features become even more dramatic at night time – with the right lighting. From in-ground lighting to illuminate specimen trees, to underwater lights for a stream or fountain, our design team will design a plan in which your property – and not the fixtures – are the stars of the show.
