NUBEL

Madrid

A play of scales and color re-imagines the original space below the Jean Nouvel designed auditorium of the Reina Sofía Museum. Special attention is given to lighting and acoustics to humanize the otherwise diaphanous open space. Built-in fixtures and movable custom furnishings based on circular fractal geometries produce varying degrees of intimacy and flexibility to adapt to different needs from casual seating to formal meals and large events.

Related press (spanish only) is available at Architectural Digest ESP, Vogue ESP and El País.
