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.
Water ParkZaragoza, Spain 2008
The Water Park of the Universal Expo of Zaragoza is a park that seeks to adapt to the meander of the Ebro River, respecting it and fostering its relationship with the city. The water treatment was of vital importance since the systems of self-supply of water and its ecological purification, by layers of sand and stone, were planned as part of the landscape and architecture project. The luminous approach of the park was from the illuminated to the luminous. The areas near the city and the Universal Expo were more illuminated, with luminaries in columns to solve the programming of routes and approach to the city and the Expo. But, when we approach the heart of the meander, the lighting becomes lower, more luminous and more respectful with the environment that inhabits. The project was worked with ceramic metal halides of 4000ºK, in the high and low elements of both zones, although the color luminance was worked with LED technology.
