The theme for the Joan March restaurant emerged from the desire to combine gastronomy and environment.
Situated in the heart of the island of Mallorca, in the town of Inca, the restaurant sits on a corner, bordering a quiet charming square where an abundance of local vegetation and pine trees are planted. The Mediterranean cuisine served is elaborated using only the finest fresh local produce.
The intention of the project was to create a unique atmosphere where the surrounding exterior and the interior of the restaurant flowed seamlessly, creating a sensation of serenity and nature while still being stylishly modern.
This look has been achieved by the use of noble materials such as wood and iron and a neutral colour scheme of greys, greens and natural wood.
The oak paneled entrance where the name Joan March is artistically carved into the wall leads into the main dining area where the newly installed tall but narrow windows allow the diner to appreciate the exterior scenery while the life size tree trunks used as decoration inside help create the infinite illusion.
The optical illusion of tall branches are really the indirect lighting embedded into the ceiling, and the delicate wooden LED lit cages hanging from the trunks display beautiful exclusively designed jewelry created by the chefs sister.
The main restaurant is divided into three zones, firstly a sofa seating area illuminated by a collection of antique lamps, the principle dining area where Kartell´s olive green Papiro chairs surround specially designed tables and lastly a wrought iron bench that interlaces with the trunks for an additional seating area. The room is then bordered by a trench of tree bark for extra interest.
Separating the open kitchen from the dining area are the sleek made to measure fitted shelving and drawer units made from natural oak and glass in keeping with the modern rustic style, all of which were specially designed by the interior designer to make the most of the space available.
The glass patrician helps create an open concept which allows a feeling of intimacy between the chef and the diners making for a memorable experience.
Special sound proof materials have been used throughout, including on the walls and in the screen blinds.
Lastly in the basement can be found a private salon, the wash rooms and further necessary storage space.a
The successful union of good food, a well designed interior and a privileged environment have once again lived up to the studio´s motto of “ Work well done will stand the test of time”.
