A small, tin construction was all we found at the back of a client’s long and narrow property. This gave us a great deal of freedom and, together with the tight budget we had with this assigned restaurant project, we were able to introduce to the market an innovative proposal for both the menu and the design.
We resolved to recycle and reutilize everything there was, and expand the shed with another module. Its posterior position encouraged us to fix the municipal line as a starting point for the gastronomic establishment. For this, we created exterior spaces equipped with tables, in a garden-like environment, that were also fully integrated with the inside room, thanks to effect produced by the glass, pivoting doors. These doors not only made all spaces face to the street, but also connect the spaces between them.
The roofs and walls were painted black and covered in pallets. The floors were built in concrete, which lowered the building cost, allowing for the purchase of white marble tables and designer chairs. The furniture thus contrasted with the exterior, providing comfort and exclusivity to the restaurant’s target audience.
