masquespacio highlights valencian heritage in hotel revitalization

 

award winning creative consultancy masquespacio presents its latest interior design project located in the old town of valencia, spain, called ‘valencia lounge hostel’. distributed over 236 square meters, the hostel has eleven rooms and highlights its heritage as it tries to give the space a ‘homey’ feeling in order to give the guests a comfortable stay. ‘we wanted to recreate the feelings for the guests that there were staying in a home, but one that makes them dream, disconnect and live a new experience, while there are enjoying their holidays,’ comments masquespacio’s creative director ana milena hernández palacios.

the intervention realized by masquespacio in the ‘valencia lounge hostel’ starts with a study of the previous status of the project’s building, containing typical elements from the valencian homes of the 20th century. this includes the vintage cement tiles and ceilings decorated with plaster molds that were maintained without modifications.

on the other hand, the aim of the design was to convert the hostel in a more contemporary space with a kind of ‘home coziness’, adding decorative elements that could draw the attention of the different customers and their lifestyle. therefore, each room was designed with a different look, that could adapt to the personality of each guest. thus we can recognize a room for surf fans, music, or the ethnic trend. another aspect to highlight is the use of graphic patterns through the whole project, also created by the studio. above, with the purpose of bringing up a major personalized identity for the project all lamps, tables, and decorative elements were designed exclusively by masqueespacio, with the exception of the chairs and armchairs.
