‘the student hotel’, which provides a unique co-living and co-working hybrid, has just opened its first two student-only campus properties in the marina and poble sec districts of barcelona, spain. the hotel has collaborated with masquespacio, the valencia-based creative consultancy, for the refurbishment and design of both properties.

considering both the international clientele and the strong identity of the student hotel, masquespacio has developed its design by creating a mix that remains in keeping with the brand’s image while adding a touch of mediterranean identity through the use of local materials and a bold color palette. the campus was designed in an eclectic style that fuses materials, colors, and textures.

you’ll recognize some memphis style with a little bit of seventies vintage and an industrial aesthetic, among others. each corner, decorative detail, and visual element aspires to blend perfectly with a student lifestyle by being part of their daily activities and aiming to be a source of inspiration for them.

ana hernández, creative director from masquespacio points out: ‘it should be noted how the use of color not only influences one’s mood but can also be used to create a bold design statement in the environment.’

the marina campus is housed in a four-towered 21,000 sqm building that includes 500 rooms. the property features communal spaces, such as swimming pools, gaming zones, open and closed seating areas, as well as quiet study rooms to encourage connectivity and exchange while providing enough space for learning and development.
