In 2011, THE GROCERY asked PLASMA to design its new restaurant in Medellín’s international airport: JOSE MARIA CORDOBA. The design team wanted to create a cozy and confortable space that could make waiting time a little more relaxing.

The airport is located in a cold weather region near Medellín, where green forests and mountains are predominant. In THE GROCERY, we wanted to bring a portion of that environment: a warm, natural, relaxing, modern, friendly and surprising place where travelers could feel, at least for a moment, away from the stressful and boring waiting room atmosphere.

In roofs and walls we used pine wood sheets in its natural finish, carefully selected to evidence the beauty of its imperfections. For lighting we tried to create an atmosphere of warm indirect lights between the wooden modules, accompanied by ambient light equally warm and appropriate for reading and relaxing.

The modules that make up walls and ceilings are made of phenolic plywood and are divided into 6 pieces that are repeated generating the main texture of the restaurant. Each of these modules is composed of two parts which are assembled without visible screws and are attached to the walls and roof with a CR structure.

In the preparation area, pieces of polished stainless steel were used for counters and accessories, clear colored ceramics were used for floors and walls. The dividing walls between the preparation area and the self were made ​​from natural stone and architectural woodworking and special furniture (pay point, doors, window frames and doors, etc.) were built in natural pine. The furniture (seats and tables) are from KASSANI and CONTACTO ARQUITECTURA was the main builder.
