Palmerston North City Council has employed Fifth Season Design to design and assist us in developing a lighting precinct along the Manawatu River. Fifth Season have delivered some of the City’s most loved night-time spaces - particular the lighting design on our new He Ara Kotahi Bridge. Fifth Season have helped the Council bring a sophisticated, “big city feel” to our growing, metropolitan city of Palmerston North.

Roslyn Thomas, Director @ Vision Projects, Wairoa

I have worked with Venky for a number of years on projects both here in New Zealand and internationally. Great designer and great outcomes. One would have to go a long way to find someone with a better understanding of light & lighting design.

Steve Marshall, Managing Director @ Brightlight, Auckland

What a pleasure it was to collaborate with Venky from Fifth Season Lighting Design. He brings an unparalleled knowledge of lighting that helped add a whole new level of creativity and drama to my project. Working with Venky was indeed a pleasure, one marked by professionalism, energy, integrity and fun.

Mark John Warren, Managing Director, MJW Architecture, Wellington

Light is both science and an art, and it’s a real skill to blend the two as successfully as Venky does. Venky works hard to first understand the architecture, brief, and budget before delivering truly transformational lighting design that is quite simply, thoughtful and beautiful.
