The architecture project orders 3 specific areas around the main bar visually opened to the life of the street and axially communicated by 2 main access to the local, ensuring that the customers could have located spaces being together in the same space.


Driving the brief for the project was the requirement that various spaces could simultaneously be susceptible to the very different disciplines of restaurant, tapas and café.


In the morning, the use is more as a Café, and during all the day, Serafin serves the traditional tapas with its habits of standing when eating together. At night, lit from inside, the façade becomes an inviting light-box to share this moment, signaling its presence while also shielding the tranquility of the interior. 


Inside, the layout is ordered around a series of low glass screen walls, with tables, bar, shelves, screen walls and roof fabricated from the same side pressed and lacquered panels of solid bamboo. Its warmness contrasts with the crude steel and micro-cement in walls and floor.
