Barcelona’s Bunsen restaurant embraces the city’s architectural quirks

Local studio Mesura borrowed from Barcelona’s collection of arches to create the interiors of this burger bar.

It’s the first Bunsen outlet to open in Spain and is designed to reference the narrow streets and curved architecture of the Gothic Quarter, where it’s located.

Mesura blended together elements that are reminiscent of classic neighbourhood bars, such as walls lined with curtains and bespoke pieces of design. As well as a curved bar, covered in white tiles, the studio designed a ceramic bench that runs along the wall of the restaurant.

The studio also created an indoor corridor that connects the two halves of the bar and installed arches that reference those found in the nearby streets.

Bunsen reportedly has plans to open more restaurants in the city, so watch this space.
