Casa de Tapas Restaurant
LOCATION: DUBAI, UAE
USE: FOOD & BEVERAGE
SCOPE: INTERNAL LIGHTING DESIGN
This Spanish restaurant is located at the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, overlooking the creek and the old city of Dubai. The concept took inspiration from the old “bodegas”, the traditional family run liquor and grocery stores across Spain.
The lighting design scheme aimed at recreating this same ambiance, through the use of extra warm white color temperatures, high contrasts and suggestive decorative lighting pieces. Recessed narrow beam pinholes and suspended lighting elements define more intimate areas, suitable for a relaxed dinner or a friendly conversation.
A third lighting layer works on the architectural elements, such as columns, bar counter, wine racks or an inverted tree suspended from the ceiling. These enhance the general perception of the space, while recreating a truly Iberian atmosphere.
