our works

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.

lighting design

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.

light art

The llight-art 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 Skin

Water sensations at World Expo Zaragoza 2008

The Water Tower is a 76-meter tall building located in the Water Metropolitan Park in Zaragoza, Spain. Designed by architect Enrique de Teresa, It was built as part of the Expo2008, which had Water and Sustainable Development as its theme.

A “water skin”, made of blue tones filters, wraps the façade of the iconic building highlighting the architecture and conveying sensations of water to the public space around. Six blue tones remind us of the water presence in the five continents and the poles.

The building´s perception changes according to the viewer’s point of view.
