Marina Pez Vela 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.

Arborea Condominium Custom Made Outdoor Furniture

This condominium project located in Santa Ana, has a very nice club house and pool area, that needed some custom made outdoor furniture. They got in touch with me to help them out design and custom made the outdoor furniture for them.

Of course, I immediately went ahead and examined their needs and budget, so I could deliver exactly what they had requested. We made a great team to successfully accomplish what they needed.

The custom made outdoor furniture

As you can see on the images below, this is a version of the Cetus sofa set. Only that we changed the fabric color, for it to be gray and gray, as per the clients request. It looks great on their wooden terrace, making it look cozy and modern at the same time.

Club House Furniture

For the club house, there was a need to have a table set with umbrella for the rainy days. And again we were working with a wooden floor, so we used the gray on gray theme which works so well. It was important to keep a same line of design here to make everything look as a whole. We wanted to create continuity, for which we used color and texture.

And then of course we needed to add some sun loungers to sit next to the pool. These were made with the exact same finishes as the table set, which sits right next to them. I love the way all the furniture was perfectly custom made to make everything come along and work so nicely together. We did a great job creating unity for these outdoor areas.

The sun lounger and table set are great quality outdoor furniture. The outdoor Sunbrella fabric we used is high quality, water proof and UV protected, to endure the high traffic.

On the inside of the club house, there is a lounge area that needed some seating furniture. For which we custom made this beautiful sofa set, with clean straight lines to go along with the style of the architecture, which is very modern. Because we wanted to add some more color in the design, we used different yet still neutral colors. Very light cushion fabric, which makes the sofa look very neat and inviting.

As you can see on this post, is very easy to have nice custom outdoor furniture to work with your designs. You don’t have to just settle for what you see on the shops here, or pay overpriced furniture.

I can gladly help you out design and custom made your outdoor furniture. If you found this information useful, please follow the link to learn more!
