Tenerife Espacio de las Artres

In October 2008, the Tenerife Espacio de las Artes (TEA) di Santa Cruz was inaugurated on the Island of Tenerife: : it was not only a museum lighting.

With its 20,000 m² of floor space, the TEA is primarily a cultural infrastructure with a clear contemporary vocation of bringing together different types of art in one place; but it is also, and no less, a fragment of urban fabric connecting the old world and the new in the city centre. The main feature of this building is the profusion of small glazed openings spread across the entire shell. More exactly, there are 1200 of these windows, in 720 different shapes and sizes.

The idea was inspired by the pixellation of a digital image picturing reflections of sunlight on the ocean waters of the Canary Islands. The preparation of the concrete frontages, punctuated with pixel-like perforations that provide the building with a truly singular type of lighting, serves both to enable a unique distribution of natural light admitted during the daytime, and produce a magical radiation of artificial light from interior to exterior at nighttime. The exterior is illuminated by recessed Linealuce fixtures; recessed Light Up Walk fixtures installed at floor level guarantee maximum visual comfort; MaxiWoody and Light Up Walk Professional spots are positioned at the end of the ramp, tracing atmospheric trails of light.

The museum lighting inside the library, fluorescent Lineup fixturescreate the ideal indirect lighting for reading and browsing, whereas the exhibition halls are equipped with special products (fluorescent strips). The permanent exhibition room is lit by a mixture of Tecnica spots and floods and Le Perroquet pendants which can be used both to pick out individual features and, when fitted with a diffuser, to provide uniform lighting for vertical surfaces, functioning effectively as wall washers.
