Sevillian entrepreneur Pepa Bascón in 2016 decided to open a new “cash & carry” supermarket of Spanish products with the aim to offer a specific service to non-professional clients in Cologne. For that she contacted Masquespacio to design her new brand and interior space. The design of the new Solera from around 500 sqm was developed in search of a touch of Mediterranean emotion, mixed with functional features necessary for this type of businesses.

 

The predominating black color offers seriousness, contrasted with several “happy” colors that remind to Spain, without converting themselves in typical Spanish topics. Other elements make us think about Andalucía like the grids with ornaments, as well as the awnings and typical Mediterranean tiles.

The signage, also done by Masquespacio, follows the patterns of the brand, adding on every moment a touch of emotion to the interior design, transmitting Spanish happiness. Last but not least the kitchen for degustation and seminaries, next to the cold chamber clearly shows the pattern of Solera’s new market, a cash & carry 100% focused on Spanish gastronomy.
