The home is featured in this months Luxe Magazine Cover story with Lighting Credits for Architectural Detail Group. Here are a few of the cool fixtures we made. Respectively ADG has designed and manufactured lights for other homes in the area with Contractors like RDM a long time and well respected construction professional team.
Furniture fabrication form and function, decorative lighting as functional detail, and ecosmart illumination with the Sexiest of shells are what ADG Eco Lighting does well. We like the LED lights of the Wrate home on the Port Streets celebrated by all the touring locals of Corna del Mar.

For those of you that read articles about sustainable or eco lighting companies, and peruse the pages of magazines like Period Homes and Traditional building, there are a few myths to dispel. Eco does not mean screw in an LED light bulb or put in a compact fluorescent bulb. And many of the companies in “Green sections” call themselves Green but are merely selling a component of green.
Companies like Architectural Detail Group, Inc and ADG Eco Lighting embrace the process of manufacturing products and the impact those products have on the earth. ADG does not have a LEED building, or count the carbon molecules as offset. the Founders and teams at ADG do practice and strive to continually get the message across that sustainability is a mind set. Gerald Olesker, ceo and founder, is consistently insuring that scrap is at its lowest level in the shop, while his teams also are effective at processing. Sr. Designer and factory management run by Joey Gennaro, looks at processes like water jet and laser cutting to next products and reduce waste as well as free up man power.
Efficiency with sustainability seems to be a buzz these days, but the question is were teh early settlers in the west efficient. By definition yes, but by practical means, no. ADG takes a similar mind set. What it takes to be a Green Entrepreneur is shear will-power and determination. Green Entrepreneur, Gerald Olesker looks at the goal and incredibly insures that the client’s needs will be met as well as vendors and ADG Team members.
