La Maruca López de Hoyos

The project for the new La Maruca restaurant in Madrid was conceived as a play on exterior-interior spaces. Moreover, its aim was to create a subtle nautical atmosphere through-out, giving the diners a constant feel that the sea might peak out of any corner. Several band-like volumes curve along the main space, inviting the visitor to walk and promenade as a sort of pilgrimage through a pier, while admiring the display of traditional images of the Cantabrian city.
