We are honored to be recognized by Dropbox as a successful business built on hard work, creative thinking and smart technology choices. Working at the forefront of design in the San Francisco market has pushed us to develop a toolkit that is flexible, intuitive and technology forward. Dropbox is an integral part of our daily operations, and has allowed us to scale in a way that was previously unavailable to a company of our size. Using the right tools allows us to focus on collaboration rather than infrastructure, and to realize the balance of both a high quality of life and work.
We enjoyed being interviewed by Italian lighting design magazine Luce in December by Andrew Peterson. Luce focuses on Italian, as well as the International lighting design communities and features articles on design, architecture, and innovations in the field.We talk about what inspired us to start lighting and what makes us unique as PritchardPeck Lighting. The article is available on their website at Luce Web and be sure to check out the full interview in their digital magazine: Luce Digitale!
Kylie began her career at PritchardPeck Lighting in 2012 as the team’s first designer, and now with her 8 years of experience she brings excellent design ideas and management capabilities to our residential projects as well as an unparalleled fashion inspiration to our office.
Where did you grow up/cities you’ve lived in? It’s actually a trade secret that I was raised in the OC of Southern California. Luckily, living in Paris and then almost 10yr in New York got rid of the tan and weeded out any clothes that weren’t black.
Transforming the abandoned Strand Theater into a stunning stage for San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theater demanded all the elements of great drama: creativity, honesty, passion, risk. Lighting design performed multiple roles, from public engagement to the enhancement of modern architectural forms inside a century-old shell. Challenged by structural and historical constraints, the pressures of a high-profile project, and a nonprofit budget of only $8 per square foot, the lighting team scrutinized and perfected each fixture over three years. The resulting solution champions integrity and transparency over concealment and artifice, celebrating The Strand’s gritty past and its bold future.
Our team has been working with Dolby Laboratories and WRNS Studio on adapting the same technology created at their Dolby Cinema in Los Angeles to debut at their corporate flagship location in San Francisco. This new concept of the Dolby theater experience integrates the perfect blend of video, audio, industrial design and neuroscience. Take a peak into the project see what we’ve been working on!

Erin Sudderth is the newest addition to our growing team here at PritchardPeck Lighting. She brings with her almost 10 years of industry experience, a BA in Graphic Design as well as a BFA in Interior Architecture & Design. Erin is a true California girl having lived here her whole life; with a stint in Los Angeles for a few years she made her return to the Bay Area. It was while studying for her BFA at the Academy of Art University when she fell in love with lighting. Coincidentally Jody Pritchard was her professor and Erin was instantly entranced with lighting design. She found it to be the perfect balance of nerdiness and artistic freedom to make an environment come to life with illumination. (How could she resist light level calculations and lighting controls?)
We have some exciting news on the horizon. Stay tuned!
We were interviewed for April’s copy of This Old House Magazine featuring an article with lighting cost savings tips from Jody Pritchard. Be sure to take a look in the link below!
The program was straightforward: A cozy music room on a family estate nestled in the heart of the Redwoods. Three years later, the completed project encompassed a professional-quality recording studio and performance space, all housed within a 19th-century barn the owners discovered in New York and shipped to Northern California by rail. The PritchardPeck team was tasked with bringing the cutting-edge studio and historic barn into harmony, while creating an inspiring lighting design that met rigorous standards for acoustical engineering. What does beautiful lighting sound like? That question became an obsession for us over the course of this project.
