Alma Negra is a wine restaurant transformed by SA Estudio. Located in A Coruna, Spain the project is a challenge for architects because of the rock walls.
The project aims to meet some strict conditions: a long and tight plot and normative heights that didn’t allow the preservation of the existing mezzanine. Black steel structural profiles are the project focus. They set the rhythm. Also, they brace the original stone wall. SA Estudio also created contrasted areas with different materials: Wood to receive, coco doormat to filter, hardwood to sit and eat, and tile hydraulics in restrooms and kitchen.
