An indoor passageway - Bunsen Restaurant - Architecture

Featured In Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain

Bunsen was originally founded in Dublin by the chef Tom Gleeson. Though as a brand they project an urban and casual atmosphere, for the opening of their first branch overseas, the restaurant incorporated recognisable features of the surrounding Gothic neighbourhood and local bar culture into its interior design. While curtains ornamenting the walls bring to mind the typical neighborhood bar, a connecting corridor between the two entrances of the restaurant remind us of passageways of the neighbouring streets.

The centerpiece of Bunsen is a ceramic bench, which curves along the walls of the restaurant (a wink to our modernist heritage). Like other designs in the area, its sinuous shape is not gratuitously decorative, but also accommodating to the human figure. Along the Catalan vault constructed over the indoor corridor, these organic shapes play with the city’s memory we find encapsulated in the local architecture and interiors. The result is not a closed off restaurant area, but a fluid and open space – much like the Mediterranean culture it is situated in.

We design for the unknown

Rather than accepting traditional answers, MESURA wants to ask the right questions. From universal concepts based on users, contexts and our world today, we shape intuitive experiences of space. MESURA is a way of designing. We are radical in our rigorousness. We aim not to break but to unify.
