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.
Paseo del ÓvaloTeruel, Spain 2003
The project consisted of the restoration of the heritage value of the Paseo del Óvalo in Teruel, taking into account its majestic staircase to interact with its surroundings and become an attraction for the city, consolidating itself as a landmark.
We designed a lighting scheme for each space in accordance with its unique architecture, connecting them through a light link between the two levels. Subtle accents in the landscape and under the urban furniture created high levels of light comfort while visually connecting the entire area.
The aim was to use light (and shadow) as a vehicle to create different atmospheres, add identity to the Paseo, and enhance the user´s experience.
