TANGO Restaurante Madrid
Calle Gral. Díaz Porlier 95, 28006, Madrid.
The aim of this project was to convert an existing European designed restaurant into a cosy traditional Argentinian steak house – creating the sensation of being in the heart of Argentina.
Each of the four areas of the restaurant were designed in zones, each boasting its own identity. The private dining area is an intimate room to hold discrete functions. With little natural light in this area, we implemented light coloured wallpaper to clad the upper walls, and contrasting dark wood panels on the lower walls – making the area functional & durable. We introduced accents of gold tones to bounce as much light around as possible.
The main area of the restaurant is dedicated to the capital of Buenos Aires. It features cosy booth seating for intimate dining, a decorative accent wall with a jumble of metallic wheel lights – reminiscent of the wheels of the “mateo” – traditional horse-drawn carriages. “La Boca” – the dining area to the left, speaks for itself with the bold feature wall in loud coloured prints in warm tones – representing the picturesque streets of this world-famous area of town.
Mirrors imitating windows with traditional wooded shutters reflect the aging windows seen in this village. The bar area of the restaurant features more modern design details, representing the metropolitan capital and its worldwide influences. Vibrant ethnic fabrics were used to upholster seats & cushions. The powder room walls are cleverly thought about with musical scripts of authentic songs covering the walls.
