Exterior Aft Profile
February 4, 2012

The various elements of the exterior lighting signature of this vessel can clearly be seen from this image. Underwater lighting aft and side profile, signage, the linear lighting to the peripheral structure of the helideck, the under lighting of the satcom's and the mast detailing. 

Helicopter Landing Pad
February 4, 2012

In the distance, the jacuzzi pool can be seen located in the gym. At high level the satcom domes are accentuated by bespoke lighting detailing, and again the mast is highlighted. 

Lower Deck Corridor
February 4, 2012
The key ingredient to this Interior is lot's of timber. The Interior Designers wished to retain a warm Interior that was natural and acted as a backdrop to the Owner's Art Collection. These variations in texture were enhanced by a lighting system that was designed to accommodate different perceived level of light over the day and night. A variety of colour temperatures were used with ambient down lighting, linear lighting to the coffer ceilings, enhanced accent lighting to the Art and low level.
Owner's Deck
February 4, 2012
As was previously seen from the Owner's Suite, linear lighting is the key to our approach to the lighting of this vessel. We have complemented this approach to the forward seating by introducing warm toned linear lighting., In addiction color temperature variation can be seen on the main mast detail at high level.
Owner's Suite
February 4, 2012
The Interior Designers were adamant that the owner would have the best view of the Ocean from his suite., Here the panoramic vision gives us the opportunity to extend the horizon line by using linear lighting at high level. This is further accentuated by the dome and it's featured linear lighting.
Side Deck Lighting
February 4, 2012
The most important feature to the lighting of the side decks is to retain the warmth of the teak decking at both high and low levels., As we can see by this photograph, we have achieved this goal by adding filters to keep the tonal balance., 
About

We are a Specialist Marine Lighting Design Company.  
 

We have carried out work all over the world in both New Build and Refit Projects.  

 
We specialise in Private Work and each project is designed to compliment the specific functional requirements of the Client by his Design Teams.  

 

We look forward to the challenge of your inquiry. 


 
Philosophy
Aqualuce is dedicated to taking the dreams of our clients and turning them into reality. 

Our team shares a deep commitment and passion to each project with an underpinning philosophy of quality,  attention to detail,  and excellence.

Each project is unique and a one off experience whether a New Build or Refit
Approach
We work to harness our client’s imagination and create the ideal yacht in conjunction with the owner’s representative, shipyard, naval architect and interior designer. There are many people and specialists involved in creating a unique product. The better the harmony between this Team the better the final product.

Aqualuce  changes the environment and the way we feel about the environment.  We combine a creative and intelligent approach with an understanding of complex technical requirements.  We provide advanced precise design data such as light level calculations,  circuitry  and power usage together with automated systems and control. We bridge the gap between the naval architect and or interior designer,  the electrical engineers and shipyard. 

As lighting designers, our sole focus is achieving the best lighting scheme and specification,  whilst ensuring that not only aesthetics are key,  but maintenance,  cost and energy efficient solutions are achieved whilst complying with International MCA standards.

From concept through to completion,  commissioning and project management,  our list of completed projects over the last 20 years give us an enormous sense of pride to be associated with and a benchmark for all future works.

"I think light is a fascinating subject. After nearly 30 years in the business I still get excited about the next project. There are no boundaries to one’s thought pattern; only solutions that have to be coordinated in a technical manner. We have no repetitive blueprint as each project brings it’s own unique challenge. We cross the boundaries between art and technology. We create memories of time spent either at sea, at anchor or within the confines of a harbour.
We look forward to meeting up with you and trust that we can help you bring your dreams to reality”.

"Being presented the opportunity to collaborate and meet different people from all over the world, sharing in the experience from design concepts, detailing and engineering of creating something special and unique. 
Coming away with lasting friendships.Each boat has a certain character and life which when treated properly deserves its own signature.  It should be instantly recognisable competing in a busy harbour or resting at a tranquil anchor.
There’s a certain personal satisfaction (and relief) after having given so much care and time into the design, management and late night commissioning sessions she is finally handed over and sets sail.  Like an old friend, somewhere, sometime, till we meet again!"

"I have always thought that light is like ‘materia prima’, a beautiful material that reveals the space, modifying and molding its shape and character. It has always been fascinating to think how actually the light and space become what they are in true essence only in relation and reflection to each other. They just need each other to be able - to be.
Working with Aqualuce has given me the opportunity to see and be part of some of the most wonderful projects. Discovering the dimensions of movement available within a given structure, has brought a new challenge and indeed lots to learn. However,  the most amazing experience is seeing how each individual boat project becomes reflections of passion, ideas, designs, communication, technology, handcraft, hard work…a sum of some ordinary and extraordinary people thinking, working and moving together in order to make something beautiful to happen.
I like to think that even when everything is over and the boat leaves, somewhere, when the Sun goes down and the lights come on all these reflections come alive again, together through different shapes of a boat, always in movement, still challenging Gravity."

“John in an artist,  his skill and love for what he does,  is that he paints with light as if they are effortless brush strokes,  and yet they are always softly moving, changing and updating.  
The effect is breath-taking,  in particular within and around a travelling moving yacht,  whose environment is also constantly shifting from dawn to dusk."

Automated & Control Systems
 
"When John is working on a lighting design for a specific project, I instinctively start programming the project in my head. Having worked for Aqualuce for over 10 years, I now can anticipate how John thinks. I am a like the ghost writer, but I am there to work logically and carefully so that the control of John’s lighting can create the magic of his lighting designs. If he wants a little more peach colour temperature or less, there hundreds of variables that have to be adjusted and balanced, all in the end so that they function to one or two preset keypad buttons, or indeed even at the slide of touch.
It’s the infinitely variable possibilities of control producing infinitely variable lighting moods
This is what is required when working on an Aqualuce project. 
It is a challenge to control what is always a moving target, whether it be natural daylight or moonlight that moves and changes with the boat, or artificial light within the particular boat by night or day."
