From the architect. We like the restaurants that change: that every time you go are different … changing your emotions with the type of event you want, with the environment you want to recreate … (we hate the feeders).

We like places that speak of where you are, the climate in which they are involved, what they have at them side…

© José Manuel Cutillas

We like the restaurants that have appropriate corners, dwellings which can be tailored to each … seldom have found … perhaps that is why we accept the challenge of build a restaurant in a merca’o.

Always the same: abstract metaphors related to what happens around the project, client, location, usage.

In this case the use of partners elements with kitchen- food-market, out of context and offered and presented as pictures of Warhol: empty bottle (or drink), pans, butcher tables.

Not as simple slides, but architected (if that word exists): lattice of green glass bottles, lamps and acoustic ceilings of caldrons, tables, benches and floors of tables butcher.
