Tramonto Residence wins 2020 Architectural Lighting Design Awards


Taking part in this year’s 2020 Architectural Lighting Design Awards, Architect Magazine recognized ShubinDonaldson’s Tramonto Residence with a Commendable Achievement for Whole Building Lighting Design.

The residence’s award-winning lighting design was in partnership with HLB Lighting Design and was described on Architect Magazine:

“There’s this beautiful consistency in the way the ceilings and vertical surfaces are treated.” —Juror Dawn Hollingsworth, Darkhorse Lightworks
Given the breathtaking location and layering of forms and textures of this private residence in Pacific Palisades, Calif., HLB Lighting Design aimed to underscore the finer points of the architecture while preserving the integrity of its natural environment. The concept of indoor–outdoor living is integral to both the flow and composition of the project.
