Inside a Valencian salad bar that doesn’t skimp on the dressing

Warm terracotta adds spice

Splashes of bright orange spice up the concrete interiors of Valencia’s BeGreen Salad Company, which offers a quirky take on the classic cafe.

Terrazzo topped tables and cushioned corner seats run along the length of a raised section in the restaurant – installed by designers Horma Studio to make the most of the salad bar’s long, narrow floor plan.

In line with BeGreen’s philosophy of ‘honest ingredients’, the studio used locally produced terracotta tiles to complete the project with minimal materials and reduce its carbon footprint. The orange accents run throughout, from zigzag details on the walls to table legs and shelf supports.

Other than the flashes of colour, the restaurant’s interiors are purposefully minimal, emphasising the texture of the concrete and bare brick, and the sprays of leaves erupting from the plinth. The menu is equally straightforward, offering salad bowls or wraps ready to be customised with a long list of sauces.
