Casa de Mareas

A house for working and relaxing

The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the transformation of hotels that got underway just a few years ago, adding multi-purpose spaces to the traditional concept of providing accommodation, leisure and relaxation where working and collaborating is possible, taking advantage of the communal areas to create co-working spaces.

Casa de Mareas, developed by The Sibarit Community, has taken the new mentality of its guests and their new requirements on board. It is a house with 7 suites that is rented out as a whole to at least 4 people for exclusive use in the pursuit of the physical, mental and emotional well-being of its visitors.

Located in Escalante (Cantabria), it advocates for a co-living format design to optimise life as a community, whether it is shared with friends and family or work colleagues, as it incorporates the co-working principle through a shared open space where guests can work comfortably and ergonomically. To do this, the place was equipped with operational and highly versatile solutions.

More specifically, Talent 300 tables and Efit professional seating has been installed. Talent 300 stands out due to how flexible it is. It is collapsible and comes with wheels, allowing it to be moved around and adapt to any working task for the guests, both individually and as a group.

In turn, Efit is comfortable and ergonomic seating that supports the back and ensures a correct bodily posture whilst working; it was developed from a design proposal that provides differential character and aesthetics to co-working.

The visitors to this country house can disconnect from the outside world and reconnect, whenever they need to for work purposes, in an environment that takes care of their posture and their well-being through its layout and furniture. Co-working is therefore yet another element that hotel users expect and Casa de Mareas shows how hotels can adapt to the new times and provide new tangible value to their guests.

Indeed, the physical, mental and emotional well-being of its guests is the leitmotiv of this 16th century country house, which has been reinstated by the architect Patxi Eguiluz where all the original materials have been maintained and design trends have been incorporated by applying principles of Neuroarchitecture.

The aim of the space is to provide physical and mental well-being, like that fostered by Actiu, whose corporate office became the first industrial building in the world to be awarded both the LEED and WELL Platinum certifications, which certify it as a healthy and sustainable space.
