Design intent


The San Telmo café is a space that works as a cafeteria, vermouth bar, restaurant and cocktail bar.

The client commisioned  us superficial  intervention that would maintain the essence of the premises, but would create an elegant and classic ambience, adapted to their business activity, opening all day,  from morning until passed midnight. The works took four weeks to complete, and did not represent a radical change,  but the renovation provided a more sophisticated space.

The intervention consisted of upgrading the existing bar with materials to enhance the product display and lighted with brass lamps.

Behind the bar, a new shelf emerges at full height as a showcase for cocktails. It is asymmetrical and made up of illuminated cubes of different dimensions and textures, it gives the whole space a warm, classic and elegant touch. Above the bar, three suspended structures, also made of raw steel and brass, serve as a lamp illuminating the bar and as a support for the wine glasses.
