The project for the lobby of the Marenostrum Tower office building in Barcelona is totally inspired by Mediterranean nature. The design takes advantage of an existing pillar in the middle of the space to create a unique element inspired by a tree, where verticals and horizontals come together in a single stroke, creating a relaxing space under its branches, but at the same time, the capital reveals some brushstrokes reminiscent of a butterfly.
The rest of the ceiling is inspired by the gentle waves of the Mediterranean Sea that unfold until they end in a figure that represents a manta ray.
The figures engraved on the walls of the space are inspired by the coral reef, letting out a soft indirect blue light that gives life to the space while revealing itself as a skin that breathes.
The reception desk, designed with soft curves, is inspired by the beauty of a swan, where fluid forms wrap the space continuously from tip to tail.
A unique design where the challenge has been enjoyed, creating a different and innovative space, with strict quality control and environmentally friendly materials. A project fully developed with the latest BIM technology for its coordination, integrating virtual models for finishes, furniture, and installations, coordinating the different disciplines.
