About Espai París

A Harmonious Blend of Art and Industry at Espai París

In the heart of Barcelona, Spain, the industrial past breathes new life through Espai París, a studio and art gallery masterfully redesigned in 2016 by Meritxell Ribé – The Room Studio. Merging rustic elements with modern aesthetics, this space captivates visitors from the threshold.

The gallery’s facade is unassuming, a whisper of its former self, inviting curiosity with its minimalist approach. Inside, the journey begins in a bright corridor where art comes alive. The commanding presence of animal portraits sets a bold tone, the initial brushstroke in a canvas of creativity.

Transitioning to the workspace, natural light bathes sleek, functional designs. This area is the heartbeat of innovation where ideas are crafted and refined. Meritxell Ribé’s choice of warm wooden furnishings against the cool, muted tones of the surrounding walls creates a balanced dialogue between warmth and industrial starkness.

Intimate Intersections of Function and Form

Next, the communal area unfolds like a scene from a sophisticated play, designed for collaboration and comfort. Here, Ribé’s flair for blending textures and eras shines through the carefully chosen furniture, each piece a testament to design’s timeless nature.

Advancing to the conference room, clean lines and ample space invite open communication and shared visions. The simplicity of the layout belies a complex understanding of form meeting function in a dance of productivity.

The narrative of Espai París culminates in a lounge that feels both ancient and avant-garde. The rugged walls, embraced by the gentle cascade of ivy, frame a sanctuary of relaxation. This space is a fusion of elements, a place for contemplation amidst the remnants of industry.

A Final Ode to Industrious Elegance

In its entirety, Espai París stands as a homage to industrial elegance, a real estate jewel conceived by Meritxell Ribé – The Room Studio. It is an ode to the seamless integration of art within the bones of Barcelona’s architectural heritage, resonating with the city’s spirit of innovation. Each room, meticulously designed, beckons visitors to explore the symbiosis of art and environment, industry and innovation.
