Valencia-based creative consultancy Masquespacio has designed the Acadèmia Altimira project. Completed in 2015, the academy is located in Cerdanyola del Vallés Barcelona, Spain.

To celebrate the 15 years of existence of Acadèmia Altimira, the owners of the academy contacted Masquespacio with the idea to redesign their brand and space.

The interior design project that was commissioned in 2014 and started with the redesign of Acadèmia Altimira’s brand, which was focused on their different targets: kids, teenagers and young adults. The redesign of the brand and interior is inspired by ‘constructing’ oneself as a person and through learning, defined here by the specialisation in recitation classes and preparation for college and university exams of the academy.

Taking in mind the different age groups from the students in first case Masquespacio looked to create an image that could attract little kids, adolescents and young twenty somethings through a young design with actual colours and materials. The design of the interior starts with the construction of three-quarter height plywood walls with the aim to make the most from the little natural light that enters into the academy, besides offering acoustic solutions for the classrooms.

The sliding doors made of wood strips meanwhile allow closing the classrooms at any time, without losing the entering light from the corridor. A ‘Face to Face’ zone is added to the project to offer one to one classes for the students, besides a study area, that maintains the aesthetic lines of the academy defined from the entrance to the final classroom.
