Masquespacio designed the colourful interiors of a hostel in Valencia, renovating an historical building with typical elements from the Valencian homes of the 20th century.
Ana Milena Hernández Palacios and Christophe Penasse from Masquespacio converted an old historical building into a colorful hostel in the heart of Valencia. With eleven rooms and four bathrooms distributed over 236 square meters, the Valencia Lounge Hostel sets new high standards for this accommodation typology.
“We wanted to recreate the feeling for the guests that they were staying in a home, but one that makes them dream, disconnect and live a new experience, while they are enjoying holidays”, says Milena Palacios. The intervention starts with a study of the previous status of the project’s building, containing typical elements from the Valencian homes of the 20th century, with its vintage cement tiles and ceilings decorated with plaster molds that were maintained without modifications.
On the other hand, the aim of the design was to convert the hostel in a more contemporary space with a kind of a “home coziness” adding decorative elements that could draw attention of different customers and their lifestyle. Therefore, each room was designed with a different look, that could adapt to the personality of each personality.
