We are pleased to announce that Fabiana Nery Pardhanani has joined chapmanbdsp as head of lighting.

Fabiana has a variety of experience and an impressive international portfolio of both small and large projects, including hotels, commercial buildings, high end residential, landscape designs, retail developments and luxury yachts.

Fabiana qualified as an architect in 1998 in Brazil, working her way up to being a senior lighting designer and leading on a variety of projects.

After moving to the UK in 2003, Fabiana was awarded a Diploma in Lighting Design and worked for several London-based companies as a lighting designer.
