Zonamerica in Montevideo is the first private free-trade zone in Uruguay. Conceived as a campus where the balance between architecture, nature and services stimulate connections, interactions and the creativity of the talent and companies who have established their headquarters there. Zonamerica provides services that range from construction design, architecture, infrastructure and technology.
Inside the complex, the office project is designed by the firm Dovat Arquitectos. The lighting design provided by Estudio Hofstadter, done largely using Targetti LED fixtures, responds to the needs of the customer to establish a continuous dialogue between the sober and coherent architecture and the formal simplicity of the space.
The linear system LOGICO in the recessed version with a flange was used both in the communal areas as well as in passage ways. Here it creates a discrete path of light that connects the different areas, providing continuity to the space and ensuring general lighting without sharp contrasts. Recessed fixtures POLKA and CCTLED ARCHITECTURAL Micro, with their minimal sizes provide the accent lighting for the lower profile and private areas such as the niches that are used as working areas.
The same minimal mood inspires the office and conference room lighting where a balanced ratio of lighting is favoured between the linear LOGICO which lights horizontal work surfaces and the same LOGICO fixtures that focus on the vertical plane. Where a play of contrasting lighting was required for a more dramatic effect, the vertical walls were lit with small and high performance CCTLED ARCHITECTURAL Micro fixtures.
In the conference rooms a DALI control system ensures the possibility to manage different lighting scenes depending on how the space is used.
On the balcony in the Lounge area PANTHEON suspension fixtures were installed. With their appealing and modern design with soft lines without sharp edges, where light is diffused in an ethereal yet highly controlled manner, they contribute to creating the right atmosphere in keeping with the design of the space.
