Juice Rodriguez is a new juice bar and café located in Barcelona city centre

The client asked for a chic and cool space which would reinforce their brand identity.

The overall budget for the project was limited, so the architect chose a material which was economical, but could be easily transformed, manipulated, and crafted. Digital fabrication techniques were implemented on plywood to create a warming atmosphere with a distinct high-quality appearance.

The low cost material was converted into a rich and precise wall pattern, further enhanced by the addition of inlays of different materials. Covering nearly the entire space it opens up opportunities to incorporate menus, imagery and product information within the grid.

The same material as for the wall cladding is used to create a series of bespoke furniture pieces, designed to produce a minimum of excess material.
