For this interior renovation, Andrés Jaque worked with a small number of super-qualified manufacturers.
This project by Andrés Jaque / Office for Political Innovation transforms the former 1946 garage of Gutierrez Soto’s most significant building, located in the geographical centre of Madrid, into an assembly of bakery, café and experimental restaurant. The original volume and structure of the building is recovered, leaving a 5-meter-high space with massive openings onto the streets.
Andrés Jaque worked with a small number of super-qualified marble manufacturers, leather upholsterers, metal benders and chrome-platers, rare-wood panelers and artisan varnishers. In what has been a unique engineering challenge, the project creates a super marble-made self-standing tent. The tent accommodates the customers’ tables and allows other uses (including cooking) to being organized in a C-shaped periphery around it.
