Appreciation towards Masquespacio for providing the following description:


Masquespacio presents its last project for the University Residence Resa San Mamés, located in the new Terminus Bilbao. The project started previously when the Greystar Group – Resa, leader company specialized in student accommodations, commissioned Masquespacio to develop the visual strategy for their future residences with the aim to obtain a uniform aesthetic for the new openings. After developing the brand manual Resa requested Masquespacio to design their second venue in Bilbao.

Masquespacio事务所的联合创始人Christophe Penasse表示:“在研发品牌手册的阶段,我们除了制定视觉策略,还试图确立Resa公寓的精髓。在研究中,我们发现在新空间中创造’社区’、提升学生分享经历的可能性是十分重要的。”不同区域彼此相连,形成了通透的布局。自习室等上方区域设有灵活的玻璃墙,它们可以关闭,从而使房间保持安静或在任何时间举行独立于其他空间的活动。

Christophe Penasse, co-founder from Masquespacio: “During the development phase of the brand manual next to the definition of the visual strategy we sought to establish the essence of Resa’s residences. During this investigation 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 diaphanous 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.

Concerning the design, the project started with a clear definition to search for creative solutions that could adapt to a limited budget. For this reason, 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.

Masquespacio的创意总监Ana Hernández说:“我们利用拼色技术,使空间获得了强烈的视觉效果,同时明显地区分了开放空间的每个区域。”露台设计采用与室内地面、墙面和家具同样的配色,在室外创造出同样强烈的视觉冲击。

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.” 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.
