The main task was to adapt the project to all of these requirements. A small distribution was made taking advantage the structure of the space that the area was giving.

The organic aspect of the rest of the glue that was found on the wall from the original construction was highlighted placing the lights with a net LED . To give a cozy environment, a hidden LED was placed under the seats and between the wood and the structure, as well as a light focussed on the tables in order to give comfort to the users
