main worksArtec Studio carries out projects through three departments: lighting design, lab, and lights. We have arranged our works in this manner to guide you on a transversal tour through our most relevant projects. Below is a selection of projects within those categories.
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.
Corporativo KomplexPuebla, Mexico 2018
Designed by the architect Fernando Valdez, Corporate Komplex is a unique project in Puebla that breaks with the established canons in terms of corporate and commercial plazas in the city.
The lighting design concept consists of generating different environments through different types of lighting integrated into the architectural space. Like any urban space in Mexico, security is a major issue. Thus, a uniform lighting was proposed in the parking lots with the right levels of security, but at the same time considering the visual comfort, complementing the general lighting system located in 9-meter poles, with the lighting of the trees in the center, as well as access to the interior parking.
The micro perforated facades of the buildings take on a major role at night, providing luminance in the vertical plane that give these elements a special character. Currently, still under construction, the glass facade will be a dynamic media facade in the future, while the luminaires and the control system are being installed. The result is a dynamic, comforting illumination.
