Patrick Quigley - Principal/Owner
Patrick B. Quigley, I.A.L.D., completed an unusual independent study option in Environmental Design at the University of Utah.  Extensive experience in performance lighting added strong technical skills to the formal architectural design and behavioral science training he received.  After working with Rob Wolsh Lighting and Jules G. Horton Lighting Design in New York City, he helped open the West Coast Office of Grenald Associates, where he was Senior Associate for three years prior to forming Patrick B. Quigley & Associates, (PBQA) Inc. in 1985. Patrick is involved with all aspects of design at PBQA.

Mr. Quigley and his firm are characterized by a highly creative energy, unquenchable enthusiasm for the work and tenaciousness in seeing the project through to a successful conclusion.  His design process, based on “choreographing” sequences of lit visual events, has become well known and is chronicled in Professor Marc Schiler’s book, “Simplified Design of Building Lighting” and Sage Russell’s “The Architecture of Light”.  This choreographic process integrates well with his ability to understand the design team's aesthetic message and to turn the project's site and architectural opportunities into a dynamic nighttime extrapolation of that vision. Patrick has attracted a loyal client base and a series of important commissions including the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial on the National Capitol Mall, the Abdulaziz Bin Fahd Abdulaziz palace complex in Saudi Arabia, the Pasadena Civic Center Master Plan, the Winter Games’ Olympic Village in Salt Lake City, the San Diego Central Library and the Star, Crown and Regal Princess cruise vessels. 

Patrick has worked with many of this country's most noteworthy architects, interior designers and landscape architects and these collaborations have resulted in numerous awards from the Illuminating Engineers Society (IES), the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD), and The American Institute of Architects (AIA). His national and international level honors include several "Edison" awards, 20 local and national IES Illumination Awards, and he is a two time winner of the lighting communities most prestigious commendation, the IALD's award of excellence. Mr. Quigley's body of work has been recognized with numerous awards including the rarely bestowed Honor Award for Allied Professionals given by the California Council of The AIA, and separate Certificates of Recognition from the California State Assembly, California State Senate and the United States House of Representatives for his firms' contribution to lighting design and the built environment. Projects of Mr. Quigley's have been featured in numerous periodicals including Architecture, Interiors, Interior Design, Global Architecture, Architectural Record, Architectural Digest and Architectural Lighting among others. Mr. Quigley has contributed to several books on lighting design and lectures regularly for universities and various professional organizations.

Patrick is able to separate himself from his lighting design passion only when someone puts a gardening trowel or a Guinness in his hands

Jeffrey Boynton - Senior Associate
Jeffrey P. Boynton, LEED AP, has been designing with light for 18 years and received a BFA in Theatre Construction and Design with an emphasis in Lighting Design from Arizona State University in 1996. Initially designing lighting for performing arts, his interest in architecture has translated this dramatic foundation into lighting schemes for many sectors. He approaches the design of each architectural space as a unique challenge to balance the consumption of electrical power and raw materials with illumination that inspires and reveals the architectural vision. He advocates for the integration of daylight, electric lighting, and emergency lighting with the proper application of lighting controls to deliver exceptional design grounded in practical energy savings and sustainable methods.

Mr. Boynton joined PBQA in 2012 as a Senior Associate after working for 14 years in the architectural lighting field, designing a range of projects from performing arts, academic and transportation facilities to historic restoration, landscape, facades and recreational sports facilities to historic restoration facilities. Additionally, he has lectured about lighting design and sustainability since 2003, delivering presentations to Los Angeles and New York Illuminating Engineering Society sections and the U.S. Green Building Council's Greenbuild Conference. He is a founding member and current Chairman of the Sustainable Lighting Committee for the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA). Under his tenure the committee published "IES DG-22-12 Sustainable Lighting: An Introduction to the Environmental Impacts of Lighting".

He is pushing the digital workplace to new levels in the pursuit of closer collaboration with design peers and has developed PBQA's approach to BIM and REVIT project delivery. An abundance of curiosity leads Jeffrey to find new ways to use digital tools such as lighting calculation and rendering programs (AGI32), AutoCAD and REVIT renderings, and Photoshop to convey ideas and communicate the project vision.


Tyler Quigley - Designer
Tyler Quigley graduated from California State University, Chico in 2009 with a BA, Interior Design emphasis. After internships with PBQA and interior design firm Design Group Carl Ross - Ms. Quigley, to the delight of her peers at the firm, returned to pursue lighting design as a career with PBQA. She has reinforced the design training she received at Chico with additional IESNA lighting classes and has become proficient in AutoCAD, Sketch-up, InDesign and Illustrator, as well as lighting calculation programs AGI32 and Visual.

Along with her role as a designer, it was perhaps inevitable that the outgoing and likeable Tyler would also become a principal player in the firm's marketing efforts. Being a talented photographer and having an excellent graphic design sensibility, she organizes and sharpens PBQA's responses to RFQ's and requests for promotional materials. She has used the same skills to help shepherd many of the firm's finished projects into highly successful award submittals. Tyler is also very active on the design side managing such projects as the Cohen Residence in Newport Beach, as well as the Gallery Alley Light Art Installation in Lincoln, Nebraska. She has had important support roles on the massive and award winning Cedars Sinai AHSP, San Diego Main Library as well as Fillmore Plaza in Denver, Colorado.

Tyler maintains her interest in photography and she is an avid snowboarder and runner. We have found that her continued participation in half marathons has resulted in a stamina and tenacity that comes in handy at the office.


Kristine Paterno -  Junior Designer
Kristine Paterno graduated from California State University Long Beach with a BFA degree in Interior Design and joined Patrick B. Quigley & Associates (PBQA) in 2012. The intense training provided by “The Beach” in design analysis, graphic communication, project programming, space planning and lighting, was complemented by several successful internships – including a pivotal one at PBQA.  For Kristine, seeing the impact of inspired lighting on interior spaces and the built environment was a revelation – she decided to specialize in lighting design.

At PBQA, the inquisitive and motivated Ms. Paterno has quickly become an important member of the design staff. She has provided vital support to senior designers on a wide range of projects that have included “Old Main” at the University of Arizona, the Double Bar X Residence in Aspen, and Slover Memorial Library in Norfolk, Virginia. Blessed with a skill set beyond her age, Kristine already has successfully managed PBQA’s lighting effort for “Creating the United States” an Exhibit at the Skirball Museum. Kristine works in Revit, Autocad and AGI 32 providing drafting and calculation support to the team. She is also responsible for managing the firms’ new website. 


Bruce Hostetter - Special Consultant
Bruce Hostetter brings a unique background to Patrick Quigley and Associates (PBQA) and to the field of lighting design.  Upon receiving a Masters of Landscape Architecture from Cal Poly Pomona, he followed his interest in solar architecture and microclimatic controls into a position with a solar architecture firm designing passive solar buildings. Out of this experience grew an interest in daylighting which in turn lead to an extensive series of classes taken between 1982 and 1986 at UCLA with Ray Grenald; the Harvard School of Design with William Lam; and an IES Certificate Program offered at Cal Poly Pomona.Mr. Hostetter joined the lighting design offices of PBQA in 1986 and has been associated with the firm ever since. He served as the firms’ Design Director and Daylighting Coordinator for several years, and now serves as a special consultant to the company. His project experience is broad and includes local, national, and international work consisting of corporate headquarters, entertainment facilities, lighting masterplan projects libraries, retail, public spaces, facades, streetscapes, cruise liners, and performing arts facilities. Bruce was instrumental in PBQA developing a ground breaking approach to computer modeling of footcandle hours within a space.  This unique daylighting technique gives PBQA the ability to assist landscape architects in determining successful plant selections and placement within atriums or similar indoor areas.  It has also proven to be the ideal tool for assessing “safe zones” within museums, galleries and private homes for hanging valuable art that is vulnerable to solar damage.

Mr. Hostetter has participated in a number of published projects receiving awards from the American Institute of Architects, the International Association of Lighting Designers, and the Illuminating Engineering Society. He was a member of a pilot curriculum committee, sponsored by the California Energy Commission, which eventually sparked the NCQLP. He has taught at several California State Universities most notably at California State University, Long Beach.

As is Bruce’s norm, he is on his own again exploring new technologies in sustainability, currently watershed ecology. He continues to bring his fresh perspective and innovation back to the firm on a regular basis. Creativity, foresight and an interest in people and their needs have distinguished Mr. Hostetter’s career and have been the keys to his success at PBQA.
