Elevating Architectural Rhythm, Harmony, Proportion & Scale in a Residential or Commercial Space

Commercial Lighting Design

Commercial Lighting

Business spaces require an aesthetic and practical approach. Invisible track lights or adjustable recess lights, for example, can illuminate the work environment and provide a calm, yet professional atmosphere for both staff and office visitors.

Hospitality Lighting

Lighting affects how customers feel and interact within a space. The right design can motivate repeat business from high-end consumers, and improve sales. Ben’s lighting design systems elevate customer satisfaction and leave a positive impression.

Residential Lighting Design

Residential Lighting

Every residence projects its own personality, its own mood. Ben works side-by-side with architects and home builders to unite their visions with his expertise in lighting design. With the right lighting, a beautifully designed house becomes a home.


Blu on Park Restaurant

In this narrow and long space, Ben examined the performance of multiple adjustable recessed lights in order to create the perception of a broader space. This lighting scheme highlights the decor, while offering narrow pools of light for intimacy.

Laura Heim Studio

In planning her own studio, the architect included a detailed format of lighting. A smart, rarely used addition, was her decision to add two ceiling solar-tubes to provide supplementary natural light. Ben added two concealed up-light elements, a daylight-harvesting control, and functional, glare-free light modules. When the AIANY interiors Committee selected the Heim Architect Studio for inclusion in the “Speed Presentations 11 Part I” showcasing outstanding interior spaces by 5 NYC-based architects, Laura Heim graciously credited Ben Kadishson:  “Your lighting expertise was key to this project.”

Sag Harbor Condominium

Two drafts and three models resulted in enhancing this stylized, refined decor.
Ben applied the pinhole down-lights with their minimal source-appearance.

Guilford Residence

Here the architect provided the floor plans, framing plans, duct plans, and furniture plans, a built-to-scale cardboard model of the whole house, and a modular assembly of lumber and Lucite to convey her spatial concept.  Ben created the whole-house lighting scheme to enhance the architect’s vision.
