In an area once dom­i­nated by heavy traf­fic and where there was scarcely suf­fi­cient air to breathe, today stand 700 new­ly­planted Bel­gian cherry trees. The Avenida de Por­tu­gal”, for­merly an eight-lane high­way and one of the main arte­r­ial roads in Madrid, has under­gone cos­metic surgery” — parts of the road have dis­ap­peared into tun­nels and parks and gar­dens have arisen in their place.

An impres­sive light­ing con­cept, achieved with the help of Selux lumi­naires, has also been installed along the newly-built boule­vard. The new lumi­naire in ques­tion is called the Olivio” and, in shape and design, recalls the sur­round­ing cherry trees.

  • The distinctive Olivio family is a modern, striking, multifunctional urban lighting system, available in three different sizes with interchangeable reflectors for street and accent lighting applications. This flexible lighting system can be equipped with optical accessories such as honeycomb and ring louvres, coloured and elongation lenses offering further effects and control. Olivio Sistema, Candelabra and Floracion poles and brackets provide total freedom of design and flexible planning.
