Acadèmia Altimira
Tuesday 28 Jul 2015


Spanish creative consultancy Masquespacio presents their latest project for Acadèmia Altimira. To celebrate the fifteenth birthday of the Academy, Laura and Mónica, sisters and owners of the academy, contacted Masquespacio with the idea of redesigning their brand and space.

The project, commissioned during the summer of 2014, started with the redesign of Acadèmia Altimira’s brand, clearly focusing on their different targets; kids, teenagers and young adults. The redesign of the brand and interior is inspired by the concept of ‘constructing’ oneself as a person through learning, defined here by the specialization in recitation classes and preparation for college and university exams of the academy.

Taking in mind the different age groups of the students, Masquespacio looked to creating an image that would attract children, adolescents and young twentysomethings using a youthful design with bold colours and materials. The design of the interior started 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 and offering acoustic solutions for the classrooms. The sliding wood strip doors allow for sectioning of the area without losing any natural light from the corridor. A ‘Face to Face’ zone was added to the project to offer one to one classes for the students.

After different international projects Masquespacio adds their first project in Barcelona to its portfolio with a design that is both functional and on-trend.
