The beauty of the Spanish province of Aragon reported on the earthy color palette, natural materials and curved shapes used in the interior of this fine restaurant from Valencia studio Masquespacio.
Located in the city of Huesca, Pukkel serves a healthy food menu and, according to the owners, aims to provide a “sensory experience beyond gastronomy”.
The interior uses a palette of natural materials and colors and wavy, textured shapes designed to reflect the beauty of the nearby Pyrenees and surrounding landscapes.
“After I did a workshop with [Pukkel’s owners], Jorge and Mikel, we immediately suggested that we work with 100 percent natural materials and integrate nature into the space, ”said Christophe Penasse, co-founder Maskspacio.
In addition to the natural landscape, the designers wanted the interiors to reflect the restaurant’s healthy cuisine.
“We explored the province of Huesca and began to discover the beauties of the mountains and parks around it,” added Masquespacio creative director Ana Hernández.
“We definitely found the reference we were looking for and which fit perfectly into the concept of a healthy lifestyle from Pukkel.”
The design studio chose different shades of brown, white and green to be used with gold accents, which he said add “a little sophistication” to the space.
The look of the restaurant follows the curved lines and circular shapes of the cabin to create a winding path through the space. According to the designers, this is intended to create the feeling of walking in the woods or mountains.
This curved path is further highlighted by the color of the floor tiles, which vary from natural terracotta to glazed green or white in different seating areas.
Uneven surfaces such as rough stucco, ceramic tiles and terracotta tiles are used to reflect the textures and shapes found in nature. Terracotta tiles on the floors, grilles and corrugated tiles on the walls were specially designed by Masquespacio for Pukkel.
The stucco seating cabins feature integrated planters filled with plants and flowers that will change depending on the season.
Other restaurants designed by the studio include the Milan branch of Italian fast food chain Bun, where he chose a lilac and avocado color scheme to create a youthful but “sophisticated” interior, and a tropical sushi restaurant in Valencia, Spain, that combines Japanese and Brazilian design elements. .
