lighting designArtec Studio 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 at 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. The 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.

light artArtec Studio’s lab is dedicated to exploring the most interactive, social, and artistic aspects of the light as a channel to create intangible and exciting light art content. This enables our team to shape the perception and cognition when being part of experiences, interacting with artworks, or creating identities through light.
Atelier Arranz BravoBarcelona, Spain 2012
The atelier of painter Eduardo Arranz-Bravo is located in Collserola Natural Park and receives light primarily from a large skylight.
artec3 daylight analysis compared the impact of natural light working under a north-facing and south-facing skylight situations. The painter´s goal was to work with natural light as long as possible, so the study proved that a south-facing skylight was more appropriate due to the most profitable use of natural light in both summer and winter.
In addition, higher levels of light reflected from materials (luminance) would create less contrast and a greater feeling of environmental comfort.
