Quinta transformation #1
In my previous blog post I mentioned what character I associate with the Quinta, but we are a long way off finishing the positioning, branding or details of the place to actually start its transformation. For this reason we hosted a 2.5 hour workshop today involving the owners and the rest of the group who have made the Quinta their home in the last 6 weeks.
Above is the schedule. The workshop was run by Julia with Nic and me running bits of the exercises. I also presented the pictures of last weeks research (to give some ideas on how other hostels feel and look) and let the groups into the different spaces to come up with quick sketches and ideas into what the rooms could transform. Having collected lots of ideas for the spaces and whilst coming up with more, we now need to look at the philosophy to work from the core outwards into styling and exact details.
