The modern and aesthetic interior of the object is represented by its activities. Subtle color selection and the angular shape of the dominant space creates integrity between internal and external.
Premises in space are arranged in series. Furniture is directed diagonally to maintain the ratio of the area. The canteen and shop premises are maintained in the minimal style that they do not become overloaded. The table, which is used in the canteen and shop space performs a linking function. The only space in this room, which is distinguished by its architectural form of the office. Curved shape provides room for dining space, and it does not become monotonous.
Selected materials in the interior had to submit the Galician traditions and culture. Geometric shapes and colorful tiles represent the Spanish land, and provides the character of the space . Objects resembling trees creates a space of comfort, and wood gives the warmth. The walls of the canteen and the shop is painted in white color, which doesn’t hide the tree elements. The interior design creates an integrity of the building’s exterior.
