Light Foundry, LLC is a startup based in Boulder, Colorado that makes the software LightStanza, a web application for daylight simulations. We are a group of talented yet grounded engineers, scientists, environmentalists, artists, and architects passionate about daylight and conserving energy.
LightStanza is a technology that will transform the way people think about, collaborate on and create green buildings. Light regulates the way we eat, sleep, live, work and play. Yet in design, lighting is often one of the last systems to be integrated into the building program. It is either misunderstood or under-utilized, both as a dynamic spatial element of a room, and in the overall energy efficiency of a building.
Our vision is to make designing with daylight more accessible, enabling people to use computing as a means to achieve human and environmental benefits. In this regard, it is not just about developing “green” software, but about bringing awareness to a troubled environment and new opportunities for engagement by looking at light.
