Project: A RIDE THROUGH THE FLOOR WITH SUBACUATIC LANDSCAPE
RESTYLING TERRACE DESTINO 56 Date: January 2015
Carmen Baselga_Taller de proyectos has created a new atmosphere for Destino 56´s terrace a bar-restaurant on the Malvarrosa Beach.
Two huge murals go around the walls of this semi-covered terrace, recreating a magical seabed that surrounds the space and attracts the attention of anyone who is looking for a place to relax in front of the sea.
The lighting has been specially chosen so that it changes depending on the different moments of the day, from breakfast time through to the hours of appetizers and lunch until dinner or evening drinks. The colours of the lights of the backlit murals are combined, with differents sections of adjustable spotlights directed onto the tables, as well as series of RGBspotlights to be able to project the shadows of 100 mannequins onto the ceiling, in various positions, either in a group doing pirouettes or simply chatting together as friends; all of them in white, mirroring the actual colour of the ceilings. From far away they look like coral reefs, but up close, you can truly see the expressiveness of their movements as if they were real people that had suffered the syndrome of the poet and that while searching, looking at the sky, inspiration is left hanging from above (as Serrat says in his song).
