Refurbishment and interior design of a restaurant, focusing on the comfort of its diners

Lantigua Restaurant in Sigüenza

The Lantigua Restaurant is located in Sigüenza (Guadalajara), a town of singular beauty with an episcopal past overlooking the Henares Valley. 

The entire premises underwent a process of refurbishment and interior design. Originally, it was an open-plan space, in the shape of a "U", built using contemporary materials, with pillars, concrete slabs and brick walls. 

The use of these materials was far removed from the traditional construction methods found in Sigüenza, in which the dominant style is plastered masonry walls, Arabic tile roofs, wooden structural elements, wrought iron railings and gates. Architecture full of highly expressive walls and textures. 

Therefore, the restaurant now makes use of wooden upright supports and beams, local stone cladding, textured plaster, terracotta floors, all while reusing elements from the past, such as the elaborate wooden bar with its hexagonal geometry that was once a counter in Hotel Elías, the setting for the film "El viaje a ninguna parte" (Voyage to Nowhere) (Fernando Fernán Gómez, 1986). Old iron beams with rounded edges are also reused to make pieces of bespoke pieces of furniture.

Comfort is considered in all decisions of the refurbishment, paying special attention to the acoustic insulation, lighting and ergonomics, so that the diners can enjoy a rich experience in L’Antigua Restaurant.
