More about this product

With a name such as 'Picasso' in its title, the Motel Picasso was looking for creative design, evoking the name of the artist. The play of restrained colors and irregular shapes was the key to reach this goal. The owners were looking for a different façade, which is an essential element in their business to attract their clients at first sight.

The design was a challenge since the concept and shapes needed to be adapted to the brand name and executed properly. The architect chose Max Compact Exterior panels from Fundermax. In homage to Picasso, each piece starts from a geometrical and irregular shape. At the same time, each one is different.

The combination of pieces when moving to a bigger scale helps to create the desired visual impact. The design was made possible through the use of Max Compact Exterior panels, which, thanks to their very lightweight structure, let the architect accomplish his goals.
