Paseo del Óvalo

Heritage and urban landscape connected through light

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.
