Ceramic tiles at the forefront of Masquespacio-designed restaurant in Valencia

Spanish-based design consultancy Masquespacio has just completed interiors for the Albabel’s new restaurant in Picaña, a small town eight km away from Valencia. Like in previous Masquespacio projects, this restaurant includes a touch of explosive colours combined with patterns that represent the graphic inspiration of the Spanish creative consultancy.

The client, Antonio Ramirez was managing his pizzeria for more than 20 years when he decided to contact Masquespacio and its design team to convert his old restaurant in a completely new one.

Being passionate about gastronomy both on a national as international level, Ramirez wanted to offer a new food concept that fusions the Mediterranean kitchen with some Andalusian from its own roots and a touch of international ingredients.

“Many of the clients that contact us are seeking to fulfill a dream and this time it wasn’t different,” explains Christophe Penasse, co-founder of Masquespacio. “In that cases our own clients many times are our source of inspiration and the starting point of a design with which they could feel identified.”

The new space is inspired by the Andalusian roots from their founders, through recognisable materials from the south of Spain like raffia, earth bricks, plants and overall decorative elements.

The design team used a lot of olive wood for the furniture, including chairs and stools, which are made exclusively for the project.

“We love to fulfill the dreams of our clients,” adds Ana Milena Hernández Palacios, co-founder of Masquespacio. “Their passion for their job makes us to be connected closely to them and allows us to have the privilege to enjoy our work on a daily base.”
