Ajoblanco is a restaurant, inspired in the Spanish Mediterranean cuisine, which asked DIN interiorismo´ s team to develop an interior design related to their menu. The Mediterranean Sea that bathes the Spanish shores was the concept defined for the color palette and the elements used to shape the design for this project.
The space used by the restaurant is divided in 3 levels, reason why it was very important to create a language to give unity to the whole concept taking advantage of the changes and the extent of the different areas.
A lattice made of ropes surrounds the reception and being the lift the vertical axis connecting the different levels it was highlighted with wood-like ceramic combined with the façade´s blue glass achieving and overall impact.
The ground floor and the first level are connected by the cellar, which was designed inside of a glass box, with a metallic and wood structure, to make the most out of the gloss and colors of the bottles on display. The first floor is a spectacular space standing out for its double height and the elements selection sending all the signals for the guest to decrypt the indulging atmosphere.
When going up the stairs to the second level you will find the original lighting cube. With the project modifications it was necessary to give the kitchen natural lighting, so this space was used with a new value creating a sculpture of wire woven as fish made by artist Girasol Botello. On the third level, going out the lift, there is a glass bridge connecting the private rooms.
