colorful classrooms in the 2day language school, valencia – designed by spanish firm masquespacio, revitalize the old schoolhouse. the spanish learning centre fuses the historic values of valencia with its modern and neoclassical architecture. three brand colors; blue, yellow and pink are used in each of the rooms to reflect the fundamental characteristics of language learning: the levels, the goal and the conversation. also based on the stages A, B and C established by the common european framework of reference for languages. the colors gradually fade up the wall symbolizing the progress in language learning.

the 182 square meter space has three classrooms, a staff room and a lounge. the sculptural lamps foster a creative environment that is uplifting and engaging. the common areas give the students the opportunity to meet with others at a different level – where three colors are mixed into the space. decoration of spanish word fixtures and other graphical elements are also prominent adding to the building’s sense of fun.

‘as in the classrooms the students and their teachers are the protagonists, we wanted to limit our intervention to a minimum, without forgetting the freshness and ‘good feeling’ that needed to breathe each space, as well as the importance to equalize the mix between modern decoration and the beauty of the neoclassical architecture of the building.’ says the creative director of masquespacio, ana milena hernández palacios.
