Lighting provides the final finishing touch, enhancing textures, creating mystery in the shadows, and illuminating perceptions. Lighting extends time spent in enjoyment into the evening hours in solitude, or with family and guests. Lighting designed to illuminate. Moonlighting, uplighting, pathlighting, focused lighting, Bob’s approach is to use multiple low key light sources and at times, no lighting at all.

Twilight and darkness can also stimulate the senses, sounds and fragrances of the night.
