Mas Arquitectura designed the ‘Pulpeira Vilalúa’ in Spain.
Description from the architects:
Mas Arquitectura moves to Madrid the essence of traditional galician “pulpeira”
A unique place to share experiences and enjoy, at the same time, a tasty dinner. This is a “pulpeira” a traditional Galician restaurant where octopus is the main product. The project, develop for Marcos Samaniego from Mas Arquitectura study, adapts this traditional store to an urban space: Madrid.
The local, called “Pulpeira Vilalúa”, follow a main idea: a place to share your time with family and friends. For this reason, the local has designed with continuous benches –an invitation to share experiences- and perimetral layout. The furniture, designed by Mas Arquitectura team, bets for renewable materials, as old wood.
The entrance to “Vilalúa” universe supposes a trip towards unknown world: the pleasure of good cooking. A tunnel, which allows us to entry in the local, has been equipped with shelves and wastebaskets to turn this space into a comfortable place for smokers.
Inside, the local hides a lot of secrets. A special main door or wine barrels used as tables are interested details that should be discover.
Mas Arquitectura, a Spanish young study, has developed this project from design to execution. Only this way of working guarantees a perfect harmony: furniture, lighting and layout are part of a set: “Pulpeira Vilalúa”
