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.
Privada 14Mexico City, Mexico 2015
The project of the Private house 14 in Mexico City sought to create a cozy and comfortable environment to solve the day to day life of a family with small children. In addition, it sought, as an architectural concept, to highlight the materiality of the edges of the steel slats that were outlined on a stone material generating a three-dimensional texture game.
All the walls where the metal and stone play was generated, these were illuminated in two directions: vertically and laterally using LED strips with different optics. With the first, we obtained greater expression in the metal slats and with the other direction of the light the relief of the stone was emphasized. All the luminaires used were LED technology of 2700ºK for decorative lights,
