SPANISH DESIGN STUDIO MASQUESPACIO HAS RECENTLY COMPLETED A GASTROBAR CALLED LA MANERA IN VALENCIA, IN THE HEART OF OLD TOWN
The project consisted in creating a hospitality concept working by day and by night, therefore suitable for any moment of the day and situation, being a brunch and coffee during the morning, a cozy restaurant during the evening, and ending up as a intimate cocktail bar.
The business concept focused on serving first class food and beverage made of natural ingredients and prepared by renown cocktail and coffee baristas. That’s why the developed design project t seeks to find the essence of natural materials.
For that reason, the existing building brick walls have been recovered, while a rusty finish has been added to the metallic elements on walls, lamps and all around the bar. When it comes to the furniture, some metallic elements with the same rusty finish have been mixed with concrete, adding a touch of warmth through brown soft leather and cushions made of different fabrics. Also be recognized in the space is the use of a lattice wall that aims to add a touch of Mediterranean nuance to the space, while the plants seek to connect even more to the natural concept from La Manera.
Aiming to adapt the atmosphere of the venue from breakfast and dinners to a sexy night space, last but not least the lighting has been regulated entirely, allowing to adapt its intensity each moment during the day and at night.
