La Boca Centro (Restaurant) by Aiji Inoue
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award Winner
La Boca Centro is a three-year-limited Bar & Food hall, aimed to cultivate cultural exchanges under the theme of Spanish and Japanese cuisine. When visiting the bustling Barcelona, beautiful addition of the city and interaction with cheerful, generous-hearted people in Catalonia have inspired our designs. Rather than insisting on complete reproduction, we focused on localizing partially to capture the originality.
Partitions and walls are not for dividing space. We visualized each area’s characters by adopting not only color contrast that can be seen apparently, but also patterns of tiles, designs of pendant luminaries and table heights. In addition, we placed kitchens and Bar counters separately to make them as icon for each area to create context sceneries of Spanish cities and off-streets.
Design Challenges
Spanish buildings usage change with lapse of time. And you can see this from the appearance of the buildings’ exterior or as a total. There are many interesting building examples where the old and the new coexist well. This time, we were inspired by this present Spain, when designing La Boca Centro.
Production Technology
Mentioning the color scheme, integrating Japan’s traditional color code cited from the four seasons and tone colors enable to organize pleasant carnival-like atmosphere on the whole. Bar will be filled with young people during early hours and as night advances, characteristic adults will relish their respective time. This scenery will look as if some interactive thing is about to start.
