Marina Pez Vela: A Playful Employee Area Design

This project was for the Marina Pez Vela employee area design. They asked me to help them design the seating area, cafeteria, lounge and game areas.


My direct client was the general manager of the Marina. With whom I really enjoyed working. Our communication was very clear and easy, which I think was key to the success of the project. The manager thought it was necessary to make the employee area a happy and colorful one. So they would feel happier at work.

On the other hand, because it is a space for people to relax and feel happy. I used high contrast colors on the walls and ceiling to add some positive energy to the seating area. The curves on the ceiling emulate the ocean waves, which makes the room more dynamic.

Design tip: The natural wood finish I used on the furniture adds warmth to the space, making it more cozy.

Adding Scale

I also added a colorful “pergola”, with the same color palette used throughout the project. This designed with the purpose of bringing scale to the seating area where the kitchen cabinets are. Because its always important to give the right scale to a space in order for the furniture and all other items to fit in the space correctly instead of having them “floating” in the area.

Custom-made Furniture

All of the indoor and outdoor furniture was custom designed and manufactured for the project. Very modern and colorful, with clean lines and the best quality, everything was very well thought and installed to make sense together.


The client was very pleased with the results for this project, and so are the user who now have a lovely space to share their lunch of coffee time with coworkers and friends.
