Best Interior Design Thesis 2023

Building bridges between young and old, and fostering connections between urban and rural areas are the objectives of this project, a centre for intergenerational learning in the Catalan region of Maresme.

With the name Viska, the student has designed a space for collective knowledge, exchange and the preservation of cultural heritage and habitat, by way of a three-step ritual — storytelling, participation and reflection — that guides participants through a transformative journey.

The space houses a library with collections of local materials, documents and books on the biodiversity of the territory, accessible to everyone, as well as a tasting area for regional products.

The design preserves the original elements of the Can Reon masía, or farmhouse, such as the small windows that help to maintain an optimal interior temperature, and uses natural materials such as oak and earth tones and textures to create a relaxing atmosphere by exploring the balance between natural light and shadows.
