What people say


“Dick Aldridge as a lighting designer produces the most imaginative work I know. His schemes are adaptable to the changing external light as it evolves through the day and well into late evening. One of my clients, a very well known film director, immediately recognised one particular technique as he had devised the same approach to lighting his own productions.”

“The importance of lighting in the context of building a new home is often underestimated. We approached Roundlight when we began planning the construction of our new home. The first observation I would like to make is that they spent a great deal of time with us understanding our requirements and in particular the lighting requirements for our art collection. Their extensive expertise in the area of art lighting was invaluable, as poor lighting of art can be a disaster. Throughout the process, from the initial design, fine-tuning of the design, liaison with the architect and the selection of fittings through to the actual installation, the standard of care and involvement was of the highest order. I am happy to recommend Dick Aldridge and his team at Roundlight.”

“We met Richard Aldridge of Roundlight in 2009 and have worked with them on numerous high end residential projects in London and in the South of France.  We enjoy working with them as they are very sympathetic to our architectural and interior design wishes and, whilst being extremely flexible, bring an enormous amount of creative expertise and technical support to enhance and complement our designs.”

“I first met Dick of Roundlight in 2004 when he designed the lighting for my home in France.  I found his approach and his use of filter to alter the colour refreshing and as a result I have continued to use him on my properties ever since.”

Ridley Scott

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Dick for over thirty years. He has helped me with some of our most technical lighting achievements. Whether it be for a hotel, ship or residential commission we have both enjoyed the experience of working together and blending our lighting skills. His technical expertise is without question of the highest standard and an example to us all.”

“Roundlight has added the finishing touches to the lighting for many temporary exhibitions at the Holburne Museum over a number of years. We have always been delighted with the results. Richard takes great care to listen to the curator’s brief and interpret lighting for each exhibition accordingly. He manages to balance making the artworks look their very best with ensuring that we are adhering to the correct light levels.”

“I have worked with Richard on many exhibition projects over the past 10 years.  He is always a valued member of the design team.  He has extensive knowledge of working with light sensitive objects and is able to make them look their best even in very low levels of light.  He brings a theatrical flair to a project and is easy to work with to solve problems.”

“Dick Aldridge’s input with the lighting of both the public and private areas of the hall has been extremely useful.  His knowledge and understanding of conservation has helped blend modern technology into a Grade I listed Palladian house to great effect, whilst retaining its original feel, and indeed enhancing the aesthetics.”

“We have worked with Roundlight many times over the years, as a sub consultant to our architectural practice. They are professional and resourceful and always bring a little extra to our schemes. Our development wing Hogarth Homes have also used Dick as a sounding board for our own ideas and we have found him to be a useful voice of reason and source of practical solutions to some of our more ambitious ideas.”

Ian Hogarth

“I have been working with Richard Aldridge as our lighting designer/project manager on various projects for over fourteen years now and have always found him and his team to be courteous, competitive and professional. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Roundlight as a company to do business with.”

“Roundlight worked closely with Allies & Morrison on the internal and external lighting design at the award-winning residential development for Chelsfield at hollandgreen in Kensington, London. The scope of the lighting design work included 52 private apartments, below-ground spa and leisure facilities and private car park.

Dick Aldridge led the Roundlight team effectively throughout the design and delivery stages of the project, devising creative lighting solutions complimentary to the OMA/ Allies and Morrison architectural vision for the development which included the creation of a contemporary landscape adjacent to the environmentally sensitive Holland Park, and a new setting for the refurbished Grade II* listed Commonwealth Institute building, the new home of the Design Museum.

The project demanded a complex client, consultant team and contractor collaboration.”
