The goal was to generate an eclectic space with a unique character, recovering different architectural representations to create a restaurant that contains diverse micro-environments. Each one with singularities, but revolving around fire, embers and roasts, thus reflecting an expressive diversity of materials, textures and atmospheres.

The experience of the place was conceived to incite the user to explore the menu and in the same way, the space, each micro-environment generates the user's curiosity and at the same time invites enjoyment, as they are sheltered by the enveloping of the materials and the darkness of their tonalities. The embers, the fire, the firewood and the stones were a constant in the materiality of the project. Preserving the rustic and aggressive of these textures was the basis of the concept of the material palette. A combination of rustic stones with polished stones, exotic woods and an enveloping vegetation.

The smells were an important part of the approach to the space, from emphasizing the ember accents, to immersing the user in the smell of roasts, generating a grill as a central part and visual focus from different points of the restaurant.

The lighting applications were designed to be the catalyst for the textures and different atmospheres. By applying accents, outlines and playing with the color temperature, gestures were created that evoke flames, embers and charcoal, concepts that are found discovering and walking through the space.
