Deco feel, millennial pink, brass touches and terrazzo floors: an office, did you say?
Check out Espacio Nueva Carolina, a new Madrid-based working space inspired to the Beverly Hills Hotel
Espacio Nueva Carolina is far from being an ordinary workspace. Once you step in, the 1950’s, Miami, vintage Caddy’s and the Ocean Drive immediately speed through your mind. And now, look! Here you are, chilling on some lounger by the Beverly Hills Hotel’s pool. Not sure about the place and time you were just thrown in: is it a Deco or contemporary atmosphere the one that’s wrapping you from head to toe? Well, one thing is for sure: you could never, ever feel like you are in an office. But, hey, amazingly enough, that is exactly what it is: an actual workspace! A quirky slice of heaven inhabited by its three creators themselves: photographers Maria and Nerea, and interior designer at Cordero Atelier, Sara.
Stretching over a 450 square-metre area on Calle Carolinas, 18, in the very heart of Madrid, the venue was designed to the last detail with functionality and versatility at its core. Indeed, Espacio Nueva Carolina aims at cheekily challenging any traditional office space, thus being home to a photography studio, temporary exhibitions and exclusive talks. In other words, this is a sort of co-working hub in vintage-Deco sauce. Ask the author of the Espacio’s revamped spatial layout, Sara Uriarte, who opted for adding a cyclorama, dressing rooms, kitchen area and even a VIP room. Fooded by natural zenith lighting suitable for photoshoots, the workspace also features Art Deco furniture and contemporary must-haves which artfully blend with plenty of ornamental greenery all around. A wise mix of top-quality materials and fancy finishes is then set to complete the scenario, while providing the environment with a peaceful, rarefied feel.
Interiors at Espacio Nueva Carolina are synonym with all design trends currently on a roll: from millennial pink doors (matching with the velvet sofas), to brass coffee tables and sculptural elements, and the kitchen’s terrazzo flooring. Here, where coolness meets vintage taste, such industrial-inspired venue, its vibrant colours and precious materials, are definitely a visual mind melter!
