We Are Anoche. We Shape Spaces with Light
Anoche is a lighting design studio aimed to add value to architectural projects through light consultancy services from both technical and aesthetical perspectives.
The intention of light in all building is to enhance its capabilities indoors and outdoors. Through lighting design we rise a difference within architectural, urban and light art projects. We tell stories, draw guidelines, awaken emotions, deep and subtle. We design conversations between natural and artificial light.
Many of our works have been recognized by some well-known international lighting design awards as well as the Lighting Design Awards, the LIT Design Awards and the Mies van der Rohe Award.
The Philarmonic Hall of Szczecin in Poland, FC Barcelona Stadium, the Massimo Dutti Store in Lisboa or the hotels Mandarin Oriental, Ritz Madrid and Four Seasons of Madrid are some of our last outstanding projects.
Anoche was founded in 2007 in Barcelona by Marià Vallés, Jordi Ballesta and Xavier Ferrés.
The studio is currently managed by Jordi Ballesta as Design Director.
Like the sky full of stars, our team is a constellation of architects, designers and marketing and prescription specialists.
Think. Feel. Light.
Our work methodology is focused on improving architectural projects using our knowledge of lighting design and consultancy. We offer different services covering three scopes of action:
We add value and content in the technical area such as lighting control of lighting, sustainability and wellbeing, energy saving and Technical Codes and standards implementation. Anoche is always on the search of new technologies and techniques, strong on developing projects with LEDs, both indoor and outdoor applications and façade lighting.
Design and Management
Our studio provides lighting support for complex architectural works and high end residential projects as well as for the develop of temporary light art installations. We use all our resources of architectural lighting solutions adapted to the specific scale of each project. Anoche controls the execution on-site from start to finish to ensure a successful result. This process usually leads to the design of bespoke and tailor-made solutions to reach the real and specific needs of a lighting project.
Teaching and Researching
Anoche is a collaborating member of APDI and IALD, the Spanish and International associations of lighting designers. We are committed and actively involved and present in the academic world and research to transmit the value of light as we all concerned. We also participate in trade fairs and forums.
Our portfolio includes a large selection of projects which have been recognised with both national and international Lighting Design Awards given by associations in charge of the lighting design culture and community worldwide.
In addition, many of the projects in which we have been involved have been awarded with the most well-know and prestigious architecture and design prizes, granted to the architecture studios and design companies, authors of the projects.
