Port Vell Oyster Bar – The Undertaking consists of the conversion of a 30sqm house into an oyster bar, situated a number of meters from the Port Vell in Barcelona. Because it was an area of lowered dimensions, an revolutionary recreation of mirrors creates the notion that the house is 4 instances bigger than actuality. The presence of hanging crops, positioned in an apparently random place, generates a poetic house in motion. A brand new ambiance, stuffed with residing nature, arches and wooden, gives a cushty surroundings to style oysters.

Architizer: What impressed the preliminary idea in your design?

Roman Izquierdo Bouldstridge: The preliminary idea of the design goals to focus on the great thing about two current components of the constructing. On the one hand, the formal class of the arches, producing a spatial rhythm and a path for purchasers who come to attempt oysters. Alternatively, the materiality of the wood beams and the distinctive Catalan vaults.

What do you consider is essentially the most distinctive or ‘standout’ part of the mission?

I consider that there’s not a singular part on this mission, however how all of the parts are associated to one another can result in a singular expertise. An arch, in itself, isn’t one thing distinctive, however the succession of arches and the house in-between them, in an actual or digital method, may give rise to distinctive sensations.

The worth of a wood beam is one thing distinctive, because it fashioned the trunk of a tree. Nevertheless, I feel that the repetition of the beams emphasizes a directionality, materiality and an area in-between extra components. On this method, the mission extrapolates the language of wood beams to type a system of chestnut boards that responds to all of the capabilities of the mission. The brand new components harmonize with the previous via a easy and unitary idea.

What was the best design problem you confronted throughout the mission, and the way did you navigate it?

The best design problem was to remodel a small house with no architectural id into a bigger house with a monumental character. Via a easy design choice, the oyster bar expertise adjustments. Three massive mirrors, positioned on the perimeter partitions, improve the prevailing house 4 instances.

The arched mirror hides the servant areas of the toilet and storage room, creating a brand new longitudinal rhythm. The problem is to create an inside porch utterly open to the surface, via two massive iron home windows that present exercise from the road due to their exterior bars. The doorway takes place from the edge that varieties a brand new arcade constructed on the façade, framing each the start and the top of the consumer’s sensory expertise.

What’s your favourite element within the mission and why?

A very powerful building element of the mission responds to the intention of stopping the viewer from being conscious that there are mirrors. The goal is to create the reflections with out being seen the weather that causes it. To do that, we attempt to make these components as flush as attainable to the boundaries of the partitions and the brand new constructed arches. The cautious element between the mirrors and the wood cabinets additionally emphasizes the aforementioned visible impact.

How vital was sustainability as a design standards as you labored on this mission? 

I perceive design as a option to carry people nearer to nature. The created ambiance specific a seek for magnificence, offering new sensations to the customers. In a world more and more distant from our pure origin, initiatives are alternatives to create new sceneries the place matter, gentle and nature merge.

I consider that our occupation entails an environmental accountability. For that reason, our cautious alternative of supplies, responds each to aesthetics and to the sustainability wants of our world. In the identical method, our objective is to maximise power effectivity and cut back using environmental sources in our initiatives.
