In designing the new Bar TORÖ in Ibiza, Spain, Valencia-based studio Masquespacio trying to develop a hospitality venue with a Mediterranean spirit, offering a service of a sports bar and Spanish tapas-focused on an international clientele.
The space located at the end of San Antonio, contains more than 200 m2, mostly occupied by a terrace at the edge of the sea. For the design, Masquespacio seeks to give major importance to the exterior mixing three colors: purple-blue, turquoise green and mustard yellow. This way, together with the use of plants the intention was to create a modern and cheerful design.
On the other hand, through the furniture layout and its design, the aim was to play with the sports & tapas bar concept using areas with high and low benches, as well as zones to relax for small and big groups. Using high benches above the aim was to increase the number of seating options with a sea view. At the end of the terrace, you can see a big cornered bench mixed with rattan seats that clearly reminds us of the Mediterranean.
Spanish quotes like ‘Eat, drink and dance, because the world is going to end’ are a clear reference to the essence and the joyful feeling lived in Ibiza. TORÖ traduces itself this way in a space that is singular, easygoing and full of life.
From the recipes to the interior, everything answers to the same concept and the way of understanding life on the island of Ibiza. To stand out lastly is the use of bamboo on the main walls and columns from the terrace, being a material that is a reference if you think about the beautiful island of the Balearics.
