When creating a good lighting design it is crucial to know how different types of lamps work. Knowing what kind of light they emit and in which situations they work well is also very important. In this master thesis I present different types of lamps and give an account of how light is spread through the different shapes of luminaires, reflectors, filters and so on. I write about how our eyes register radiation and connections between lighting and how it makes us experience space. Furthermore I deal with the effect of artificial light on living organisms and the environment. After the theoretical studies I deal with the places I have visited to study how different lamps and luminaires work and look like in existing lighting designs. These visits have also been inspirational to my lighting proposal for Bokenäs. Bokenäs is Volvo's resort and conference center which is situated on the Swedish west coast. The establishment has been rebuilt and extended a few times and some older structures remain in the area today. The oldest building is from 1926 and the artist Ole Kruse lived in it. This building, called Krusegården, differs in style and in colour from the rest of the buildings in the area. Preceding my lighting proposal I made an analysis of the area in order to observe different qualites, passages and viewpoints. I also made an analysis of the existing lighting in the area to see its good and bad qualities. Conclusions from the analyses help me to come up with an idea for the lighting of the area. This idea is the base for my lighting mock-up, which I do in full scale with borrowed luminaires. The results of this mock-up is later revised into a lighting programme for Bokenäs. In the end of the thesis I reflect on the result of my lighting programme. I also discuss my personal gain of writing this thesis and the role of artificial lighting in public spaces.
