Typical restaurants are about 5,000 to 7,000 sf in size and feature a 360° bar with tapa station, an open kitchen, main dining room, private dining room, and a luxurious back-of-house space. Layouts and décor are designed to echo the eclectic ambience of traditional Spanish food markets, like the restaurant’s namesake La Boquería in Barcelona, while also recalling the timelessness of mid-century European modernism through the thoughtful use of exposed wood and custom metal accents and light fixtures. Although Boqueria had established design standards prior to our involvement, we’ve been both executing and elaborating upon what came before as we’ve worked on new locations. To take just one example, we’ve been designing a number of custom metal storefronts, a relative rarity in the hospitality field. At the Nashville location, the storefront is part of an operable system that opens up the restaurant interior into a patio, letting the hustle and bustle of both spaces flow into one another.
