Murcia, 2007


The aim was to achieve the best possible acoustics.


Due to the limited space, we chose not to interfere with the thickness of the vertical parameters, but we did manage to better the acoustics by building a folding ceiling that embraces the restaurant from above, and hides all the installations. The ceiling is made of a hyper-absorbent material that creates a topography of light and shadow, at the same time as forming private mini acoustic areas above each table and isolating them from the rest of the building.


Some of the vertical parameters have been covered with mirrors or black glass, with the idea to play with the reflections that blur the contour of the premises. We took great care with the lighting by installing tracks in the vertex of the folds in the ceiling, from which lights are directed towards the tables and towards the false ceiling, thus demarcating the shadows and also reinforcing the geometry of the space.
