Bar ‘La Butiq’

Isabel Lopez Vilalta, interiorista

Description Technical file

An attractive lamp design hanging from the ceiling and produced especially for this project takes centre stage, illuminating the entire space, both the working area and the one occupied by the diners.

On the outskirts of Madrid, in the exclusive comples of La Moraleja, we find this bar, ‘La Butiq’, whose name comes from the business that was here previously. It is sought here to enhance the counterpoint between classic and modern by giving it a new and contemporary air.

The establishment, situated in a building between party walls, opens up in its two opposite glazed facades to an outdoor terrace that recreates a chill-out atmosphere and to a porch space on the other façade, where meals are served.

The objective consists of creating a unique and enveloping space, a highly versatile meeting point. During the day it adapts to attend to a basically executive public and in the evening transforms into an elegant cocktail bar.

The reform of the premises required the elimination of a mezzanine in order to be able to give them the greatest possible height in order to thus organise the space around a large central bar that distributes and organises the space. The painstaking lighting gives warmth to the whole.

The reflections of stainless steel and brass become more evident thanks to an indirect lighting system that floods the entire establishment in contrasts.

The interdisciplinary work carried out by a team of young graphic artists has given rise to the use of part of the graphic application by pixellating and adapting it to the establishment as a whole. The use of a classic reformalised and updated print was the formal resource used to clad the wall that separates the accesses from the facilities, both on glass and on stainless steel.
