Who are AMC Projects?

AMC Projects, a boutique firm with a multinational team of six, has illuminated Marbella's luxury lighting world for two decades. Composed of a team of seasoned professionals renowned in the sector, they provide consultancy services to a wide range of international clientele in Spanish, English, German and Russian. Their designs have always revolved around the essence of light, being driven from inception by a passion to transform spaces, emphasising the intricate interplay between shadow and light.

What Defines AMC Project's Vision of Luxury Lighting?

For AMC Projects, luxury lighting is an art that goes beyond mere illumination. It's about crafting an ambience, evoking emotions, and enhancing the overall aesthetic of a space. Their design philosophy is deeply rooted in achieving the perfect balance of light and shadow, ensuring each space tells its unique story. They believe in creating lighting solutions that not only illuminate but also resonate with the space's character and the client's vision.

Lighting is very personal, so we must always have a very close relationship with the client to intimately understand their tastes and needs.

Their commitment to staying abreast of the latest trends and technologies ensures that they bring only the best to their projects. They state their aim is to, “Find the right lighting, at the best possible quality, which surprisingly is not always associated with the most expensive product, in our experience.”

Their commitment to excellence sees them studying the very latest technology, travelling to trade shows across Europe to ensure they are at the vanguard of their industry.

Challenges in the Luxury Real Estate Lighting Realm

The luxury real estate market is ever-changing, demanding constant innovation. AMC Projects, with its dedication to excellence, ensures it stays ahead of the curve by delivering unmatched quality at every stage of each design process. Their understanding of luxury spaces' unique requirements allows them to craft lighting solutions that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Designers are taking lighting more and more into account when creating a project, however, in our opinion, there is still some way to go before it is given the importance it deserves.

Their projects, whether it's a modern villa or a historic hotel, are a testament to their commitment to these principles. Nevertheless, while trends have come and gone, AMC Project's core philosophy of creating timeless lighting designs remains unwavering.
