Entry Description
Arboleda is a residencial architectural project, the principal goal of the architecture project was to create in the center an important park for the residents and organize the buildings around it.

We develop a collaborative design process with architects and the real estate company as to allow lighting to be a distinguishing element and generate confortables and welcoming light atmospheres for users.

The most important space of the project is a doble height volume located under the buildings which is the access to the entrance halls, a parking and a common space that connect the central park to exterior of the Project.
Our objective was to achieve an indirect lighting effect from the concrete pillars that would give a welcoming and confortable atmosphere and at the same time underline the
pillars sculptural form. This lighting system also allow to avoid lighting systems on both sides of the building as it give sufficient light level for circulation of pedestrians and vehicles.

The functional lighting of the emergency stairs which are made of glass translucent elements was designed as to transform it in big vertical decorative lamps that create a rhythmic facade lighting.
