El camino restaurant / Zooco Estudio
Textual content description supplied by the architects. Our consumer proposes an Asian restaurant by which the protagonist goes to be uncooked fish, in its completely different variations. He additionally desires a relaxed, heat, and distinctive ambiance. The place is positioned within the Sardinero área throughout the metropolis of Santander with lovely views of the “La Segunda” seaside. One of the crucial emblematic areas of the town, the place the ocean and the seaside are the principle characters.
With this setup, we proposed a design that brings the undersea world to the restaurant. Nevertheless, we stayed away from the clichés of the ocean imaginary. We introduce an abstraction materialized in textures and shapes that remind us of that world. All this interprets right into a curved geometry that speaks concerning the sea swell, which is organized in three completely different bands.
The decrease band homes all of the round benches and the bar; a tough and resistant intermediate band for the partitions; and an higher band that homes the ambient lighting of the room and the overbar.
On a cloth degree, as an alternative of the apparent choice, we selected noble, timeless, and heat supplies, equivalent to wooden and clay, which seek advice from the Asian-Japanese aesthetic. We seek advice from the typology of Japanese (Asian) restaurant within the materials greater than within the formal aesthetic.
From backside to prime, we’ve pure wooden and textiles that seek advice from the curvilinear world earlier than talked about; the squama geometry in clay materials which refers back to the fish pores and skin; and the plastic cylinders, clear and reflective surfaces that symbolize the wáter glitters.
Lastly, on the ground plan, we launched a terrazzo that completely matches the concept of a sandy flooring, finishing this marine ideology. At a programmatic degree, there’s a coated outside house that features as a filter for the restaurant, the place the wonderful views of the Sardinero are highlighted.
