artec3 carries out projects through 3 departments: lighting design, lab and lights.
We have arranged our works in the following categories to guide you on a transversal tour through the most relevant projects of artec3.
artec3 lighting design is dedicated to developing high-quality architectural lighting projects through close, proactive relationships with the design teams and clients. Shaping light, we create innovative lighting designs that enhance the architecture and its contents, while achieving the program and sustainable goals.
Take a look to our most relevant projects.
Our lights emerge from the experience developed in our lighting designs projects and the study of the function and emotion of the light interacting with space and people. artec3 Studio, by merging research, technology and taking care of details, has developed new concepts of light. Our designs are produced by recognized manufacturers and have been internationally awarded.
Enjoy a selection of our luminaires designs and bespoke lights.
The lab department has explored the most interactive, social, artistic and exciting aspects of the light as a channel to express intangible contents. This enables us to shape our perception and cognition when being part of experiences, interacting with artworks, or creating identities through light. The artec3 lab, in continuous artistic experimentation with light, has evolved to summalab. Find more about it.
Casa BYACuliacán, Sinaloa, México 2015
The lighting is based on and reinforces the geometry of the architecture itself, which is born from the formal reinterpretation of the four-part roofs of a French villa. Inside the light subtly profiles the upper horizontal plane, bathing the false ceiling planes that draw geometric shapes. Outside, from the facade carpentry itself, the lighting highlights the vertical planes at night and provides identity. Mainly, four lighting typologies were used: facade and accent lighting on the exterior and ceiling and decorative ceiling lighting on the inside.
The illumination of the facade achieves a compositional luminous effect. Warm light embedded in the floor, or from the wall itself, emphasizes different access areas (including the vertical garden) and generate a suggestive light effect in the vegetation of the garden itself.
Inside, a pleasant ambient light effect, compositional and of high visual comfort is generated that reveals the geometry, guides and accompanies. The detail of the decorative lighting provided each space with its own luminous identity. Much of the lighting was solved using LED strips integrated or incorporated in different details or situations, generating a variety of lighting effects.
