From the designers
Ceramics, in different formats, lead us through various spaces impregnated with the essence of the Mediterranean: the bar, the kitchen and the patio.
The ceramic material is present throughout the different atmospheres, thereby bringing us closer to the values that our clients wish to transmit: naturalness, humility and respect for the history and heritage of the Mediterranean. But in each space it is transformed into a new material which helps us to make each area unique.
The entrance area contains more urban references, like the metallic structures of the antique Ninot food market across the street. In this area we use ceramics in a colorful, artistic way, with panels of monochromatic tiles which surround us as if they were part of a deconstructed mural by Miró, the artist.
The kitchen is the oven of the restaurant, both real and metaphorical, as it is from there that all activity emanates. Here we use ceramics in their most humble and rugged format: pieces of, baked bricks in their natural color, form a permeable limit through which the guests can see the interior of this oven, golden and warm.
Passing through the heart of the kitchen we arrive at the main dining room, a wide luminous space which visually mimics the terrace and which invites us to open our gaze and our spirit, transporting us away from the city to a more natural environment.
We are embraced by white walls, ceilings and floors, surfaces with openings in a chaotic order, reminiscent of Mediterranean towns.
The limits of the space are drawn by these openings and windows which allow color to enter the space, always Mediterranean, like the green of the bushes, the yellow of the genista or the blue of the sky.
