our works

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.

lighting design

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.

light art

The llight-art 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.

Ohla Barcelona Hotel

Barcelona, Spain 2011

The Ohla Barcelona Hotel is located in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter. A building full of history renovated by Balaguer Arquitectos Asociados in collaboration with artec3 Studio.

The goal of the lighting design was to enhance the spaces and provide a unique experience for the guests, offering them areas of comfortable and intimate atmospheres to enjoy their stay in Barcelona.

A bespoke luminaire was exclusively designed for the rooms to create continuous lines of light with no dark zones, with direct-indirect lighting. The luminaire, equipped with a fireproof mesh of translucent metallic fabric, provided high-quality lighting and elegant and sophisticated touch to the overall sleeping area of the hotel.
