From details in an outdoor courtyard to millions of square feet in a mixed use project

At Oculus, we are scalable.  Lighting is essential to every project, and we enjoy designing at all scales. Take a look at our projects »

Founded by Archit Jain and Scott Hatton, Oculus Light Studio is an independent lighting design studio delivering innovative lighting strategies that celebrate both the science and art of light as a powerful way to shape the environment.  Lighting is the small portion of a project yet overall creates a meaningful impact. At Oculus, we enjoy the lighting process for the value it brings to each space and we pride ourselves in meeting the aesthetic, business and environmental goals of each client.  Oculus is based in Los Angeles, USA, with lighting design projects in the US, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
