Eleanor did a fantastic job on the lighting design for our home. We tasked her with designing a modern lighting solution which would enhance the property’s period features and Eleanor came up trumps. Eleanor’s attention to detail is superb; she took the time to really understand what we wanted to achieve and has a great sense of light, space and how the various elements of the property cohered. We really valued Eleanor’s creative vision and also her practical approach. Eleanor was great at coming up with stunning solutions which really worked. We are thrilled with the results; we have a beautiful integrated lighting system which we can control easily and effectively and which really ‘makes’ the house. We loved working with Eleanor; she is fun, thoughtful and relaxed and we would recommend her without hesitation!
As a self-taught property developer I was extremely sceptical about the necessity or usefulness of a specialist lighting designer, and even more doubtful about their cost effectiveness. So it was with some trepidation that I engaged Eleanor Bell on a unique project we have underway to build an office on a disused World War II concrete barge. What a pleasant surprise! Eleanor has more than proved her effectiveness: her input has been crucial to the look and fabric of the project, and will more than justify specialist lighting input for even a small project. So much so that when we were trying to bring an extra level of quality to a warehouse conversion I had no hesitation in engaging Eleanor. Her extra depth of product knowledge, and visualisation of finished result, together with a working knowledge of installation procedure, means I would recommend her services to anyone wanting to ensure the lighting of a development is both aesthetically pleasing and practically effective.
Eleanor was the Lighting Designer for a commercial retrofit that I managed. Her attention to the brief was reflected in the standard of the lighting specification. Changes were resolved rapidly and adventures were taken with some hand made installations. The centrepiece of the building was a handmade design of Eleanor’s which pushed the sustainability of the building to even greater heights.
