Brandston Partnership Inc. (BPI), an award winning architectural lighting design firm, has completed over 5,000 projects in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

BPI was founded in 1966 by Howard Brandston, who went on to receive many lighting awards, including Lifetime Achievement awards and “Fellow” status with both the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES) and the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD). Early in his career, he worked with major NYC developers in trend-setting designs for hotels, office lobbies and exterior environments. Working internationally was a part of his early business model.

Our professional staff of one hundred sixty in New York, China, Singapore and Korea are trained in architecture, interior design, engineering and theater, with primary interest in architectural lighting design. BPI has been selected as the lighting designer for some of the world’s most prestigious projects built in the last half century. Our client list and number of honors we have received give testimony to the quality of design work we have contributed to these projects.

We have an extraordinary diversity of experience at every scale and virtually every project type. Our work ranges from jewel-box boutiques, intimate cafés and small apartments, to insightful historic restorations, technically demanding aquaria and major city planning projects.
