Tanya Pardo

Lighting Designer

Tanya is a lighting designer with experience ranging from architectural lighting manufacturing to high-end residential lighting design. She enjoys working in a collaborative team environment and is passionate about enhancing architecture with discrete lighting design.

Thinking about functionality and how end-users will use the space is crucial. However, the design would still be lacking without the use of lighting to create meaningful focal points. Tanya believes that lighting design is less about lights and more about enhancing and transforming a space – she loves the ability to change the mood in a room with a touch of a button. She first fell in love with lighting design when she saw how the manipulation of light brought out the drama, dimension, and depth of a space during her first aiming visit. From perfecting lighting details to creating drama through fixture aiming and scene settings, Tanya believes the magic is in the details.
