Lorenzo Patti

MEng

Engineer and Lighting Designer

My role is to create buildings that are more efficient, more sustainable and more comfortable. I do this by supporting the design process from the early stages.

I use innovative calculation tools to create a connection between engineering and architecture, building on my studies in architectural engineering. Through the use of data visualisation and graphics, I provide guidance to the design team on the effects of simulation inputs and outputs, which helps deliver effective communication of design ideas.

I am a specialist in climate-based analysis modelling for daylight and energy, exploring innovative design solutions at different scales, from site analysis for masterplanning to cumulative light exposure for museum and galleries.

I recognise the importance of modern building envelopes in order to deliver low energy buildings and to ensure the optimal thermal and visual comfort for the end user. I have developed skills in parametric building façade optimisation and also thermal bridging analysis for Passivhaus projects, and am currently working on Agar Grove, a major 493-home Passivhaus development for the London Borough of Camden.

I am also an architectural lighting consultant. I have been always fascinated by how light affects how we experience and perceive buildings. In my lighting projects I combine the latest, and most suitable, technologies and approach to deliver creative and functional solutions.
