Tile graphics for Vicente Cañada Blanch school


Designer Maximo Recio has partnered with architects Alvaro Fernández and Pablo Padilla to redesign the 14 toilets and two changing rooms of Vicente Cañada Blanch public school in Notting Hill, London.

Following an overhaul of the school’s architecture, the interior design has been tackled. It uses “zesty colours” and black and white tiles to create a cost-effective solution that creates “a sense of identity and playfulness within the school,” according to Recio.

He adds: “The colour palette invigorates each room and highlights the water and electricity systems, while the tiles are used to create messages, drawings and patterns that encourage children to use the facilities responsibly and increase hygiene.”
