Masquespacio : Student Hotel Campus

The international chain Student Hotel Campus extends to Spain its hybrid concept combining accommodation and co-working. The result: a student residence of five hundred rooms whose renovation was carried out by the Masquespacio agency, in the Marina district (Barcelona).

Known for its ambition to revolutionize student housing and traditional hotels, the Dutch firm already established in various major cities in Europe installs in Barcelona. Whether for a tourist weekend or a semester abroad, if we want to change our monotonous student residences, it is in this place mixing co-living and co-working that you have to go! A timeless programmatic mix that encourages connectivity and exchange. The Marina Campus, located fifteen minutes from the Sagrada Familia, alone brings together five hundred rooms divided into four towers ranging from four to ten floors, for a total area of ​​21 000 square meters. 

The latter, installed in comb, and capped with a swimming pool, are connected by a ground floor common to the two programs, divided into zones answering various uses such as entertainment (table football, billiards and ping-pong). pong), work (study room) and rest (armchairs and terraces), delimited by varnished grids, raw concrete pillars, but especially by the use of exuberant colors.

"It should be noted that the use of color not only influences everyone's mood, but also creates an environment with bold design. " Ana Hernández, artistic director of Masquespacio


The industrial aesthetic found in each establishment of the hotel group is here combined with a Memphis style and a vintage seventies touch. Black and white tiles, exposed ventilation ducts, but also short illuminated quotes and armchairs in Mediterranean tones make this address an out of norm accommodation, in phase with the identity of its customers.

Be careful not to lose yourself to the point of forgetting to visit the country!
