Resa San Mamés student accommodation in Spain has a new design. Thanks to the Masqueespacio creative studio, the interior of the residence is an open space with a color scheme for each room. The color blocks interiors creates a sense of community that is just unique.
Christophe Penasse, co-founder from Masquespacio: “it was clear that it was important to augment the possibilities for the students to share experiences as a ‘community’ in this new space.”
Hereby a transparent layout was created in which the different zones are connected between each other. Above some zones like the study rooms include flexible glass walls that can be closed to maintain the room in silence or organize events unrelated to the other spaces in any given moment.
The bold and colorful interior used vibrant greens paired with millennial pinks, lavender, and hot pinks, while soft furnishings and partitions were used to define zones within the space.
“Using the technique of color blocking we obtained a strong visual impact for the space and at the same time we could create a clear distinction between each zone in this open space,” explained the studio.
Masquespacio got involved at the early construction phase of the building, selecting the finishes for the walls like the original bricks and concrete floors to avoid the installation of additional materials, next to the decision to maintain all the pipes visible. This way a contemporary and industrial look was created with a touch of color that transforms Resa San Mamés in a vivid and joyful place.
As well as accommodation, the building has a kitchen, a dining room, study rooms, leisure rooms, a gym and a terrace.
Muted yellow covers the ceiling above the open kitchen, while lavender tiles are used as a backsplash. Wooden furniture with yellow accents surrounds the kitchen area, some of which is on wheels to allow users to reconfigure the space as they wish.
Millennial pink dining tables and chairs were placed against a green backdrop to define the dining space, which also features oversized steps that form amphitheatre-style seating. Everything was designed to encourage group interaction.
Blue-painted brick adds texture to formal study spaces and red velvet curtains on circular tracks surround group study tables for additional privacy.
Walls and services pipes were left unrendered and exposed to give the interior an industrial look.
Last, to be highlighted, is the design for the terrace for which the color blocking was used again both for the flooring and the walls as well as on the furniture to create the same strong visual impact for the outside.
Ana Hernández, creative director from Masquespacio: “Using the technique of color blocking we obtained a strong visual impact for the space and at the same time we could create a clear distinction between each zone in this open space.”
