For a centrally located commercial space in Madrid, BURR has applied a new restaurant concept, drawing inspiration from Mexican street food.
In this project the studio BURR – the practice led by Elena Fuertes, Ramón Martínez, Álvaro Molins and Jorge Sobejano – used techniques which are common in the fitting out of temporary eateries, recalling food trolleys and street stands during fairs. The space can be adapted to different situations – ‘doll up for galas or parties’ – with a naturalness and reversibility that goes with the brand’s gastronomic idea, close to Mexican street food and with high aspirations for change and evolution.
The exterior pavement continues indoors, so the Madrid street of San Bernardo enters the place. Inside, the preexisting space maintains its rawness, highlighting the contrast between the arches wrapped in yellow tarp – which with irony imitate the classical forms deliberately uncoordinated with the rhythms of the premises – and the open kitchen with its metal finishes. The furniture and lighting are also retractable, comtributing to the restaurant’s informal and spontaneous atmosphere.
