The Spanish architecture practice BAREA+PARTNERS has been selected to create the image of an Italian restaurant in downtown Madrid. Taking as starting point the varied Mediterranean cuisine offered by the restaurant, B+P proposes a space inspired by the Amalfi coast, and creates an environment that takes the customer to a romantic place away from the bustle of the city.
 
The space is configured by building a succession of vaulted porches, where ducts are hidden and indirect lighting is integrated. Natural vines grow around these porches, creating an environment that reinterprets the traditional gardens of the Amalfi coast.
 
The materiality and colour palette is deeply inspired by the coastal tradition. Mosaics of natural stone and aged brass metalwork are interspersed with the yellow and blue textiles, colours that refer to the Mediterranean Sea and the lemon, native fruit of the area.


The intention of creating a delicate space has led to care for each line, materials and textures, creating cohesion between all the elements that make up the project, generating perspectives that dialogue with the Viewer.

El estudio de arquitectos Barea+Partners ha sido seleccionado para crear la imagen de un restaurante italiano en el céntrico barrio madrileño de Ciudad Lineal. Tomando como punto de partida la variada cocina mediterránea que ofrece el restaurante, B+P propone un espacio inspirado en la Costa Amalfitana, y crea un entorno que transporta al cliente a un lugar romántico alejado del trajín de la ciudad.




El espacio se configura creando una sucesión de pórticos abovedados donde se ocultan las instalaciones y se integra la iluminación indirecta, alrededor de los cuales crecen enredaderas naturales, reinterpretando en clave actual los jardines de la costa Amalfitana.




La materialidad y paleta de colores se inspira profundamente en la tradición costera. Mosaicos de piedra natural y carpintería metálica de latón envejecido se intercalan con el amarillo y azul de los textiles, referencias a los colores del mar Mediterráneo y al limón, fruta tradicional de la zona.




La intención de crear un espacio delicado ha llevado a cuidar cada línea, materiales y texturas, creando una cohesión entre todos los elementos que componen el proyecto, y generando un espacio cuyas perspectivas dialogan con el espectador.
