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 Eixample Hotel

Barcelona, Spain 2016

This old building restored as a hotel was approached with a tailor-made design that exteriorizes the quality of interior life and contemporary design through illumination of the façade. One element works as the center of the design: a conceptual staircase that acts as the heart of the building.

The façade ́s dynamic light generates a subtle choreography, allowing the building to blend in with the urban vibe of the city while respecting the environment and local restrictions. The staircase, in the beginning a secondary element, also acquires a central prominence and great aesthetic value from the intelligent lighting approach that prompt its identity and makes the interior design to stand out.

In addition, exhaustive control was exerted over the budget to be able to illuminate the hotel with LED technology in all the applications. As a whole, the lighting design generates light ambience of great warmth and comfort, creating shared intimacy and allowing complete relaxation of the guest.
