19.86 by Rubén Arnanz
/ Type of project: Restaurante
/ Location: Galería Canalejas, Madrid
19.86 by Rubén Arnanz is our newest restaurant project located in the emblematic Galería Canalejas in Madrid. In this space created for the Segovian chef with Michelin Star, we wanted to represent and point out the value of the Castilian gastronomy.
Castile represents, better than any other place, Spain’s identity since time immemorial. Its hard palate can find in 19.86 the perfect scenario, so that it gets engraved on fire, wood and stone in our sensorial memory. The space itself invites visitors to our gastronomy and it is a white canvas so that the imagination of Rubén Arnanz and his team, paint it with the colors and flavors of a very contrast-rich land.
The used materials, like granite, chestnut wood and stainless steel, have the enough quality and weight to don’t need anything else. Our responsibility when designing the project was to find beauty and comfort in what was strictly necessary.
