CANTINA12. Feb2013

TAGS: wood, cantina, restaurant
Designed by Estudio Nomada

Cantina is the result of the union of two separate spaces in the building of Archivo de Galicia, Espana. The space have an unusual look for a cantina and can be considered more of a mix between a cafe and a store. The tree structure references Spanish holiday picnics and communal gathering under trees. Using a contemporary language, Estudio Nomada created Cantina, which is a sort of a rural tavern located in the newly designed Galicia City of Culture, a building by Peter Eisenman.

The Galicia City of Culture (or Cidade da Cultura de Galicia) will be a new cultural centre using groundbreaking architectural design situated on a site on Mount Gaiás in Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain.

The concept of Cantina won the prize for Best Restaurant in September 2012 at the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards, part of the RIBA awards.
