The establishment is located in a ground floor in the Sant Pere district, with level D in urban planning (Good of Documentary Interest). Over the last few years, it has worked as a bar, with different businesses which have tried their luck. The interior geometry, as is the case with most of the ground floors between common walls of the 19th century, has an elongated tube shape, widening once it surpasses the volume that generates the neighboring stairs, with a little ventilation patio at the back.

The nature of the commission is to transform the former Lebanese food business into a hamburger restaurant. The resources are minimal, and there is the added peculiarity that in the same figure, that of the promoter, the one of the constructor and the operator will also be joined. The restaurant has been self-constructed in a 70% of its totality. Given the conditions, the contemplated interventions are simple, and the distribution only suffers slight alterations. These interventions are able to combine the specific actions of a professional operator with the self-taught capacities of the promoter.

In the tubular space of the entrance, until reaching its extension, there is a large plywood spruce-wooden bench on the wall which absorbs the irregularities of the existing wall.

The semi-circular arch made of Montjuïc stone, filled with bricks from the common wall, is used as a turning point, making a withdrawal from the bank to create two corners and form a piece of furniture that will be used to serve sauces and other condiments.

In front of this space, which, unlike the rest, does not have tables or stools and rests in front of the neighboring stairs, there is the rubbish bin, integrated into a DM panel which absorbs the irregularities of the neighboring stairs and also hides the premises’ and building’s electrical meter boxes.

The extension of the room generates a zone of high counters, service and consumption at the back. These geometries are intertwined in the floor and in the elevation so that they hide the toilet’s lobby with the minimum involvement possible. The kitchen space and the patio are left out of the project’s intervention, as well as the toilets, to which an independent lobby is added, integrated with the bar’s volume.

A silk grey invades the entire establishment, bringing all the materials into alignment: the existing ones (brick walls, masonry, plaster, tile…) and the new linings (leveling, cork panel, plaster, DM…). Areas and elements are highlighted in red, especially in the part of the bar and the furniture, as well as other surfaces with micro-perforated corrugated sheet (integrated light or wall lamps, separating folding screen, tape on bar…). Finally, the plywood spruce wood brings the necessary level of warmth required by the owner and sets a contrast with the general unification.

The stools, tables and wall lamps are designed: a strategy which is adopted in order to differentiate the premises and to give them a material and conceptual integrity.
