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.
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.
Sabadell BankBarcelona, Spain 2010
Rehabilitation of the Bank Sabadell Headquarters, Barcelona.
The headquarters of the Sabadell bank in Barcelona is a protected building with a false luminous glass ceiling and a staircase of high architectural value that needeb to be restored and maintained. It also had to comply with all the requirements of the branch program. Likewise, and luminically speaking, it had to comply with the Technical Building Code and with the health and safety regulations of the unions. All these factors made this project a challenge: the combination of rehabilitation at a programming and constrution levels, to comply with all standards and requirements…
However, through the use of indirect fluorescence T5 of 3000ºK and a white painted pladur, for the light to bounce, we achieved a lighting of high comfort, complying with regulations, very integrated to the architecture project and out of the visual of the clients and workers that visited the bank.
