From the architect. The organizational scheme is due to similar patterns of micro-structures, more in line with geometric patterns of liquid and / or aerosols that Cartesian structures. In establishing a working geometry using "soft" and a unified treatment space "airy".

The new space is conceived as a continuation of the existing fence, wrapping it all, but hidden: expressing their new identity, not as constructed element, but as a re-forested. A new plant species grown in the surrounding area ... the new scalar similarity between elements of "plant" makes the proposal a new understanding of the link with the existing connection.

This species builds a base of recycled plastic tubes of different colors similar to reeds, organizing a braided flexible and deformable organic capability to adapt to any situation and geometry.

like it muchos muchos!
pure concept, using basic expression elements and mixing it up to chaotic dynamic industrial garden!

Oh well, it's pure Spanish chic and they love their stuff... granted there are plenty of details but that is the point, it is a restaurant and lounge, and in Spain certain excesses are allowed in public commercial spaces... it may not please everyone but it is a building that does not escape attention. Good one.

Excellent outdoor solution!!! Just great...
Of course i´m thinking of my latin country in wish you need to keep yous outdoor locked with a fence

INawe · May 01, 2009

I for one was skeptical about the design until i looked at the shots with people in it. I thought there was too much going on but for a lounge space i think its great and the use of different levels of transparency was well thought out. I think this would be a great place to get my drink on. ;)

@Daniel Con,

Maybe you should present your arguments on why this is bad architecture for you in order to discuss this further, otherwise it´s just a rant with 0 value.

Josep · May 01, 2009

I think the architecture is really nice
the interior is really chaotic
too many design ideas
wish they have keep the same simplicity inside and out
but the exterior is just plain beautiful!

Javier · May 01, 2009

A stripers would be happy in those spaces XD

Daniel Con · April 30, 2009

Is it acceptable to make a bad building, cover it with a "cool" looking screen, and believe that it is a good architecture? Putting a dress on a pig

Bo Lucky · April 30, 2009

My guess would be that lots of plastics were used in this “building” what makes the that thing flamable… very interesting description of the project however words don’t make architecture and there is very weak connection between the project and its description.

sadly its the oudoors.

Izzz · April 30, 2009

Beautiful greens and combination with white! Sadly the outdoor seems forgotten.
