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.

Tryp HotelBarcelona, Spain 2001
The project of the common areas of the Hotel Tryp of the Barcelona airport was focused on the central space: a large hall that faces all the corridors of rooms. This space had large zenithal skylights that provided natural light during the day. At night, thanks to groups of 5 metal ceramic halide luminaires of 150w installed inside the skylights, it maintained the volumetric sensation and spatial quality with the artificial light of the great atrium. To this typology, it was added decorative foot lights of warm ambient light effect of 3000ºK, to bring human scale to the place and make a comfortable space for the visitor. The conjunction of these two typologies were outside the visual of the people who they were sitting in the atrium, generating in their sum a suggestive and comfortable space of high luminous and spatial quality and of great visual impact for the hotel guests.
