Project by: Jose Carlos Francisco Baeza of PlayOffice
Location: Spain

For grownups, bedrooms are about rest and relaxation, but for children, the bedroom is often their place to play, cultivate their interests and let their imaginations take the reins. This space, for three brothers in Spain, is filled with fun details amidst a stylish, modern aesthetic.

PlayOffice, a Creative Studio in Madrid, believes that children learn through play and that childrens' spaces should facilitate this play. Here's what designer Jose Carlos Francisco Baeza had to tell us about this project:

It is a beautiful flat in Madrid where we renovated the space for children. The challenge was to create a space that would have bedrooms that functioned as playrooms and create the environment for developing their numerous hobbies (painting, workshop, reading, constructions Lego, devotion to the heroes of Marvel).

We have a peephole for the brothers to communicate through, a courtesy light as a house of 'Perez Mouse', a crane with a command post for moving toys, a paint shop, painted frames on the wall to hang the boys' artwork and photographs, three lofts game (the crane, one to read and Lego one), a craftroom, a safe for them to store their treasures and a lot of details.
