Based in Berlin, L-Plan Lighting Design is an independent lighting consultancy, which was founded by Michael F. Rohde in 1999.

L-Plan Lighting Design represents quality of lighting in architectural spaces, but also brings forth an ecologically sustainable approach with technical expertise in the fields of:

  • Artificial Lighting Design
  • Daylight Design
  • Masterplanning
  • Luminaire Development
  • Event Lighting, Light Installations

L-Plan Lighting Design approaches lighting as an integral part of architectural design.  We believe that it is important to complement each project’s unique architectural expression with custom designed lighting. We work in close contact with our clients, architects and specialty planners.

Our office encompasses an interdisciplinary team of experienced lighting experts, with the background, knowledge and competence in architecture, interior design, product design and electrical engineering, which allows us to develop cutting-edge lighting solutions. We design artificial lighting and daylighting solutions, paying careful attention to both design and functional aspects to create unique concepts with state of the art technology. We pay close attention to ergonomic quality, integrating your economic and ecological goals into the overall concept.

L-Plan Lighting Design is working on a wide range of both national and international projects. Our scope of projects range from many different types such as museums, office and administration buildings, religious spaces, transportation environments, hospitality, retail spaces, urban lighting masterplans, media facades and exterior urban areas.




Light is a fascinating and powerfully expressive medium. Light and space are closely interrelated and therefore, influence each other. This offers enormous potential to the design development. As lighting designers, we make use of these opportunities to support the architectural expression.

A thorough analysis of place, architecture and space, as well as exploring and understanding their historical and contemporary context is vital to the development of the lighting vision for each and every project we embark upon.

Furthermore, we examine our designs with technical exertion, which continuously develops further at every stage of the project. As part of our design strategy, constant testing of state of the art lighting technologies, with the aid of calculations and visualization tools help us realize and communicate lighting solutions in the most efficient and sustainable manner.

Good lighting design is the successful dialectic between light and space. It facilitates the perception of spatial relationships and offers a new holistic impression of space.




Our office encompasses an interdisciplinary team of experienced lighting experts, with background, knowledge, and competence in architecture, interior design and product design.
