Dome Ceilings and Skylights
Dome Ceilings and Skylights are among the most memorable features of fine architectural spaces. There is possibly nothing more inspiring than a room with an illuminated ceiling. As an ornamental feature, or covering the entire expanse, the warm glow of stained glass overhead imparts a feeling of grandeur to any space. We work with you to determine your requirements and the best use of the available space. Flat or low ceilings can be framed to display a laylight system of flat panels.
Larger domed skylights require structural framing that we produce in steel, brass, aluminum or wood.
Lighting systems can be designed to provide supplemental lighting or controlled illumination for areas that have limited natural light. Contemporary light sources can be installed that are energy efficient. Use of LED lighting panels and grid systems provide the best option for energy savings, ease of maintenance, and for areas where cavity space is limited.
