El Malecón promenade
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

  • project El Malecón promenade
  • architect West 8 urban design & landscape architecture

The newly designed Malecón prom­e­nade in the centre of Puerto Val­lar­tas, Mexico, is an urban gem — a wooden foot­path that stretches for more than one-and-a-half kilo­me­tres, from the Los Muer­tos beach in Viejo (Old) Val­larta in the south to the Hidalgo Park in the north. The prom­e­nade, which is adorned with bronze sculp­tures, attracts both young and old and local artists and other per­form­ers appear here. Awarded the acco­lade of Best Urban Design Project” by Mexico’s Archi­tec­tural Asso­ci­a­tion, the Selux Olivio Can­de­labra lumi­naires here ensure max­i­mum lumi­nous inten­sity for locals and vis­i­tors.

  • The organic design of Olivio and its functional versatility due to the modular design of this luminaire family is inspired by role models from nature. As a result Olivio forms the basis for light concepts in urban living areas where the focus is on the well-being of people. Olivio luminaire heads are available in the sizes Grande, Medio and Piccolo and can be combined with various arms and pole types from the three design lines Sistema, Floracion and Candelabra. Yet it is not just the design that can be adapted individually according to the situation – various optics and light colours from 2,700 to 4,000 Kelvin also cater for challenging lighting tasks efficiently and without glare: from illumination of paths and squares, floodlighting of façades and accent lighting of buildings. The new Olivio Cap also reduces light scatter and for special requirements, with its camera and loudspeaker modules, Olivio can be integrated into smart application scene. The special wooden-pole aesthetic emphasizes the Olivio's high quality, organic luminaire design. Combined with luminaire heads in a harmonoius colour tone such as bronze, this results in a timelessly comforting spatial ambience.
