Light is at the heart of Elxir’s approach

Natural light most often but not exclusively

A light that is not just a source of illumination or of glare to be quantified, tamed and controlled a sensitive and poetic light considered rather as a great means of architectural expression

With its expertise in materials, their means of transformation, and capacities of representation, precise analysis and quantification using photometric simulation, Elxir continues its research work to discover new natural lighting devices which in turn its consulting practice

This exploratory work, coupled with the participation to the writing of several, allowed Elxit to develop a unique approach

Thus, Elxir offers both analysis services and assistance in the design of non-standard or non-standard light spaces
