Juno House Club (Part I: La Nave)
Juno House, the first professional women's club in Barcelona
Juno House is a social club for women. It was a non-existent concept in Spain until then, with a very specific program of needs. It had to be ready in record time: the creative concept and its development were presented in two months.
It consists of two spaces: La Nave and La Farinera. Both with different needs but with the same aesthetic language.
Project part I: La Nave
La Nave was a large empty space, totally bare, without segmentations, and with a very marked air and industrial style of an old workshop. It had to be given a more feminine, sweeter aesthetic, without forgetting the soul of what it had been. It was designed to be a social space and also where you could work.
It is divided into 3 differentiated zones through the change of pavement and segmentation of spaces with a forceful central axis in terms of form and use.
Upon entering the Warehouse, the reception area houses a waiting room and a shop, for business development between members and for merchandising. It seeks to look like a box, and it achieves this by using the color palette studied for the project, with a homogeneous nude color on the wall and surface tiles. Ornamental finishes with round, sinuous shapes are introduced, thinking of the sensuality of women.
In the background, a restaurant with signature cuisine is designed with a wider bar for show cooking, with tables and furniture made to measure.
Both spaces are divided by a sculptural iron staircase, made of a single piece and covered in white. The bathrooms, located next door, introduce the color navy blue with gold touches, and are custom made for the space.
In the central part of Juno there is an area for rest, with a multipurpose central stage. Behind, a mural designed exclusively for Juno, with the rounded shapes of the space. On the opposite side there is an enclosure made with oak slats and a roof lined with clay mortar.
In the third division there is a chill out area with diverse vegetation and with the same clay mortar coating, which enters the walls of the different conference rooms. This creates a visual relationship between spaces.
The last room is Juno’s library, whose walls are the deepest color in the palette. The entrance through an arched door makes the transition to this space different. The wave-shaped acoustic ceiling and its indirect lighting create a contrasting and refined visual perspective.
