main 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.


Mexico City , Mexico 2018

The Tevilah, an intimate space with a minimalist interior, was lit to complement the natural light and architectural intimacy of a place of ritual cleansing, reinforcing the sensation of protection and respect for those who use the building. The challenge was to produce an aura of light without the intrusion of the actual fixtures: harmonizing the architecture and the lighting of the volumes created. Linear luminaires integrated into coves and furnishing help to define the geometry and volumes of the building, whilst delicate accent lighting was added to improve the overall luminosity in certain spaces.
