Projects and Awards

A stunning hotel.  A destination resort. A modern, functional headquarters.  And a train with interiors that indulge your every luxury.  Can lighting design really make a difference in these spaces?  It can when you team up with the right firm.  Since 2015, GMLD has worked on 160 projects in 16 countries, 65 cities, and 25 states. These projects include more than 90 hotels and resorts, 34 residences, 60 clubs & restaurants, as well as a few trains, train stations, yachts, river boats, corporate headquarters and churches.

From Cusco to Cabo, from Anguilla to San Miguel, we have a track record of lighting design success in a range of sectors.  We invite you to view our gallery of recent work — pictures tell the GMLD story best.
