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.
