Our friends from Lucas y Hernández-Gil strike again, with a killer interpretation for a gastronomic concept Bocadillo de Jamón y Champán – a celebration of the Spanish tradition of ‘truth and life’ that elevates the humble ham sandwich into a gourmet experience. Located in Madrid’s trendy Malasaña, the restaurant/ bar serves nothing but top-noth ham (Jamón) sandwiches and high quality champaign. Booya!

The 90sqm restaurant interior features a relaxed but sophisticated atmosphere, with all aspects of the design handled by Lucas y Hernández-Gil. Expressing the duality between the raw and the refined both in the use of materials and the colour palette, the interior has a unique aesthetic which stands firmly on its own two feet – something that’s increasingly difficult to come by in the globalised and homogenised world we live in.

The designers build on the aesthetic of the late 19th Century Madrid building by introducing volumes and shapes inspired by the modernist era. The ceilings are painted blue (tick), the luminous gold surface of the back bar pays homage to champagne (tick, tick), while the accents of baby pink shift the overall mood into the good-old unexpected territory (tick, tick, tick!). The round and welcoming shapes of furniture also reference the sophisticated and festive world of champagne, perfectly completing the bar’s raw and rosy aesthetic.

What else is there to say but to proclaim my signature ‘Extreme Love’? Over and out.
