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.
Templo Birkat ItzjakCiudad de México, México 2016
The lighting concept for the Marina Temple aims to achieve a contemporary look and a high visual comfort for the pray and study of the Torah, without losing the essence of tradition, respect and liturgy that must be perceived in these religious buildings.
A steel mesh incorporated into a glass, which also acts as the border of the area, was illuminated with flush light to produce the appropriate contrast to achieve this ambience of privacy but at the same time to allow women to see the Rabbi in the lower level.
A lighting control system was incorporated to select the appropriate scene for each situation and to allow the liturgy experience to reach its maxim state. The architectural materials used were wood and stones of warm colors.
