Interior Design in a restaurant in Versailles France. The goal was to bring the Portuguese food and ambient to the inside. The keys were light Gaudi and classy style.
The reception, in which are represented several Portuguese iconic cultural elements: the azulejos (tiles), the Portuguese guitar, the Porto wine cellars, the eléctrico (tram) and the famous pastel de nata from Belém, among others.
A pastel coloured dining room in wich stands out the row of tiles on the floor, as well as the entire back of the footers, the lamps in shades of gold and black and the wine cellar built into the wall. The name of the restaurant "Alma" in gold metal placed as if it was a frame.
The dining room viewed from the reception, highlight for the screen with geometrical cut-outs in gold metal that separates the dining area from the reception.
Entrance to the kitchen thru a lacquered door with golden appliques all around, surrounded by built-in cellars, as well as frame with portuguese guitar.
Back of the dining room where the two diner tables american type offer not only more privacy as well as more comfort due to the use of sofas. The Portuguese stamp in the form of tiles, both on the ground and in the wall in the form of a frame.
The washbasins area with twin mirrors, wall mounted faucets and twin basins placed on top of a dark wood cabinet.
Due to the little space available, there was a need to be an all-in-one toilet: female, male and for people with special needs.
