Vicaima doors promote the functional design of the Pedralbes Vita Student Residence

The Pedralbes Vita Student university accommodation chose Vicaima’s solutions to be fitted in all the rooms and common areas of the new development. Located in the city of Barcelona, close to some of the most prestigious business schools in Spain, this student accommodation consists of 274 flats, set in an elegant residential area.

The first investment of the reputable “Vita Group” outside the British market, the rooms of the building have been designed with different options of the Block model – a ready to install set composed of door, jambs, architraves and accessories.

For the room entrances, the choice went for the Block EI30 AC32dB, a solution that meets the demanding requirements of fire resistance and acoustic isolation, essential in a building designed to host students. In the interiors, several units of the Sliding Block model were installed, this solution contributes to maximising the functionality and the use of the spaces.

As for the common areas, which include the study and dining rooms, a state-of-the-art gymnasium, swimming pool and lounges, the security conditions are provided by the Block EI60 fire resistance solution.

For a refined aesthetic feel that harmoniously blends with the different spaces, the choice of finishes went for Satin White Lacquer RAL 9010, Dekordor® 3D Grey and Dekordor® 3D Black – distinct options which merge and adapt to the décor of the property. Simple, elegant colours which are balanced out by the presence of bold decorative details, transforming the different areas into unique, striking spaces.

Besides the fire and acoustic performances certified by international accredited entities, Vicaima also gives special attention to the environmental aspect within its activity. Aware of its responsibility towards more sustainable projects, the company provides all of its products with FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) certification.

In this way, Vicaima reasserts its continuous presence in projects of excellence for the residential sector, standing out as one of the major European players in the design and production of avant-garde solutions for interior doors, technical doors, frames, wardrobes, panels and furniture items.
