“From the emotions within a person to the lighting within a space”

From the 5th floor of an interior design studio in SoHo, Within Light Studio emerged from a dream that Mara Villegas and Wesley Burdett shared over 15 years ago. Through countless late nights collaborating with interior designers and crafting artful lighting for luxury hotels, residences, and bars, their vision evolved and blossomed, leading to the creation of our lighting design studio.

With humility and unwavering dedication, we've honed our craft, delving deep into the art and science of architectural lighting design. Our focus remains firmly fixed on the experiential connection between lighting and hospitality. We cherish the privilege of illuminating spaces that inspire and elevate the human experience.
