Barton Restaurant by Isabel López Vilalta & Magüi González, Barcelona – Spain

April 2nd, 2015 by retail design blog

Combining avant-garde and raw-vegan techniques with traditional spanish cuisine, the tapas bar and restaurant Barton commissioned locally renowned interior designer Isabel López Vilalta and architect Magüi González of Nred Arquitectos to transform their restaurant. Located at a bustling district in Barcelona, the site was previously a delicatessen selling italian pasta, structurally, the designers has divided the space into three sections: the dining area, the bar and the open pantry.


The interior design encompasses a decorative contemporary-meets-retro approach reflected in the timber paneled walls, the polished concrete floor, mismatched cushions and the wire-frame lighting. To allow a smooth and clear communication between the waiting staff and chefs, the kitchen is partially open and connected to the dining area by a screen of open shelving. Using barton’s vibrant menu as a source of influence, the restaurant evokes a warm and eclectic ambience which goes hand-in-hand with the contemporary spanish dishes served.
