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.

The project resulted in a design process which conceives the lighting of the building as an "inconclusive" application. This was possible as the office areas would be built without partitions or false ceilings leaving unrendered surfaces until the arrival of tenants.
We could work with the density of the shadow in relation to depth and form. Contrast would generate quality in the spatial perception of the building: the luminaires would not only serve to define the spatial entity of lit areas during this stage of the building but were chosen to complement the architecture after tenants had moved in.
