The new headquarters of the Madrid-based studio occupies the ground floor of a 1960s building that was formerly a car repair workshop
Multidisciplinary studio Boa Mistura recently enlisted Estuyo Studio to transform a former car repair workshop in Madrid’s Puente de Vallecas neighbourhood into their vibrant new headquarters titled diamante bruto, or ‘a rough diamond’.
Occupying the ground floor of a building dating back to the 1960s, the 247 sq metre expanse is organised into three main spaces: an office area, warehouse and workshop, the latter being at the very heart of Boa Mistura’s work, which finds its roots in graffiti.
Bold colours, high ceilings and graphic elements define the office, complete with both quiet and vibrant places to work. Designed to reflect the studio’s ethos and bold personality, the interior marries exposed materials like concrete and brickwork with warm woods which, together, provide the perfect canvas for the firm’s eye-catching artwork that’s dotted throughout the interior.
Meanwhile, a new partition wall and folding glass door separate the workshop from the main office. Here, employees can either work independently or collaboratively, while a custom-made wooden kitchen near the entrance, offers an informal place to pause and socialise with colleagues during lunch or at the end of a long working day.
With punchy colours, a minimal aesthetic and industrial materials, Estuyo Studio designed an inviting and stimulating area for work and play.
By mixing reclaimed materials and carefully selected details with bright statement pieces, the Madrid-based architecture studio created a hip interior that reflects the very essence of Boa Mistura, proving that great spaces inspire great work.
