2017年，Casa Carmela餐厅迎来了一次全新的翻新与改造。作为此次改造的设计方，nihil estudio充分尊崇并维护了该餐厅内的地中海风情，将海洋与荡漾的微光作为餐厅设计的主导者，让历史成为空间的最佳叙述者。
It was in 2017 when the restaurant underwent a new update. This time, nihil estudio was in charge of the renewing, with and from respect, this space with Mediterranean characteristics where the semll of the sea and light reverberates becoming the guidelines od a familiar restaurant where history has its own voice.
From the respect to previous interbentions, nihil estudio works in this project combining tradition and modernity in this family business which represents by itself the passage of four generations now. With the premise of recovering the existing ceramic tile, but also modernizing the spacie, speeding up the space and increasing the entrance of light, nihil estudio works in Casa Carmela with careful attention to the importance of showing the details of the high quality products.

Without losing the essence of “bar” which is characterized in Casa Carmela, nihil estudio intervention shows now the fresh product with which plates are cooked, also recovering traditional existing decoration from the restaurant as tradicional Valencian tiles and also brings light to space incorporating iron elements serving also of support to the bar.This iron elements serve as an artificial front light and turns allow the visitor appreciate the rehabilitation in the ceiling, where the joists were respected. Allowing to show though a contemporary language, the logo of Casa Carmela now is embedded in microconcrete with the ceramic pieces.

With presence in means such as the Via Michelin or the Repsol Guide, the paella in particular and the rest of its fresh produce become the protagonists of this restaurant. This is how the kitchen was opened to the corridor, being able to see the work of the “paellero” and gaving the bar a counter space for the fresh product. Tradition, respect and good work prevail in this intervention of nihil study where the knowledge of the raw material is valued, going beyond the purely constructive terms.
