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”.

floor plan

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.

elevation

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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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. ;)

    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.

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