Ketryna Fares, Architectural Lighting Designer - HLB Lighting Design
Ketryna's work revolves around the human-centric approach of constructed environments which bring forth spatial opportunities that highlight form and function. She examines the impact of lighting on the environment and how in return it impacts the human experience, and activities in a place. As an international designer, she's managed to remain flexible to the needs of different projects and clients, and enrich her understanding of universal design notions and how to apply them to local project requirements. She is also interested in health and wellness, sustainability and a design that has a positive and durable lasting impact on communities. She started her career in Interior Architecture before venturing into Lighting Design. She graduated with a Master's degree in Interior Architecture from the Acadâ€€mie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (Beirut, August 2014) and completed a Master's degree in Lighting Design at Parsons the New School for Design (New York City, May 2016). Ketryna's portfolio includes cultural, retail, commercial, and sports+recreation projects, as well as ones in Hospitality and Aviation/Transportation. She is always interested in collaborating with architects, designers and artists, and understands the richness of cross-disciplinary exchange of knowledge and experience. She serves as an IALD (International Association of Lighting Designers) NY chapter coordinator, and is actively involved in educational and business strategy efforts across HLB Lighting design.
