We were asked to create a space where you could savour some cocktails in an elegant atmosphere while enjoying the virtues of its location by the water’s edge at the OneOcean Club Port Vell yacht area in Barcelona. The building hosting the Blue Wave Cocktail bar has a particular morphology: a long tube form, with its longest facade facing the water. We unify the interior and exterior space and strengthen the wrapping sensation of our braking wave by using the same materials on floors, walls and ceiling. Their colour goes from deep blue to white, incorporating the concrete white lattice façade of the building as the foam to the wave. Located at the northern part of the cocktail bar there is a wide terrace. Conceived as a Mediterranean cove, a space of transition between a vegetal, wooded zone and the sea, its stepped topography creates different spaces.
The architects Oliver Franz Schmidt, Natali Canas del Pozo and Lucas Echeveste Lacy form El Equipo Creativo, an interior design studio based in Barcelona and specialized in the interior design of gastronomic, commercial and brand flag spaces. "We share the idea that space, the same as food, tells stories, creates sensations and experiences. Every new brief comes with its own story, therefore we aim to find a unique design that includes craftmanship to tell every story in the most enticing way."
