Bar of pintxos in the traditional district of the Bilbao poteo. This project includes a partial reform of the public space to enable the enlargement of the bar area. This included the redistribution of the seats, some central high tables, and the renovation of the bar counter. The grayish tones and the warmth of the natural wood created a cosy and more luminous space.
Sport Bar with the colours red and white in consonance with the Athletic Bilbao Football Club. The original brown floor tiles have been kept, enhancing the furniture: seats of velvet burgundy and dark wood tables. The lighting consists of red suspended globe pendant lights, bringing freshness and vitality to the area.

Travel Agency WOP “One World One People”.
Project and elaboration of an original concept developed to realise the activities available on business trips.
The concept is that of a trip involving a “transcendental experience”. The client is an active participant of the process of development of his trip from the first moment. The objective of the one who receives the client is to help him to determine its project and to obtain its major success. This supposes that the agent is a habitual traveller who can provide real information to the traveller who wants to go into a place or a culture they do not know. The agents promote places that are satellites to the great tourist centres: peripheral hotels, places recognized by UNESCO, etc. The agent offers all the necessary information for client who, if he is satisfied, can then organise the trip - reserving and buying the trip by using the available computers provided. Also further research regarding the trip can continue by exploring the possibility of other excursions in the designated Reading Room. The Travel Agency makes its commission by the agreement that it has with hotels and trip operators, etc.
Commercial activity of a Delicatessen of alpine products and provision of foods. The store is conceived like an advertising platform, a bridge between the alpine and existing gastronomy in the Basque culture, in which it tries to propose an original cooking alternative. In parallel the store is an instrument to make the necessary area to show the selection and quality of the products on sale.
Extensive use of wood in various forms: wall panels, furniture, frame elements duplex, stairs, etc. References to the traditional alpine design.

- to offer quality of produce (taking care of the quality of products as well as its packaging and its promotion);
- to show continuous improvement of the image of vegetarian gastronomy that the restaurant provides (evolutionary elaboration of the menus, which adapt necessarily to the different seasons);
- to contribute to positive publicity through the network of other producers “invited” to participate at the events organized in the restaurant (beekeeper comes to sell his honey and to explain the process of production of this, expert in mushrooms proposes “to go to mushrooms” and explaining how to recognize some, etc.);
