1435 – Caballa Canalla Restaurant

The popular Mercat de la Barceloneta has from last month of April a new local gastronomic reference point “Caballa Canalla”, placed in the center of this traditional neighborhood.

This restaurant built by MESURA Parterns in Arquitecture has been caught up in the typical relaxed and friendly atmosphere of the Barceloneta. The reform project was closely related to the fact of the identity of this particular place. Without searching a luxurious decoration, the proposal was to profit its Mediterranean roots due to its proximity to the sea.

From a spatial vision, the restaurant has an excellent terrace with porch and the upper floor remains visually opened to the huge market roof that covers the square.  

The connection between both floors is the most important point in the project. It is an enormous catwalk, at the height of 120 cm, which goes to an exceptional balcony with a typical view of the Barceloneta neighborhood: the square at the back (crowded with tourists and residents), the hustle and bustle in the bar and finally the stoves, the authentic core of Caballa Canalla market cooking. The first floor corresponds to the daytime of the project with clear and neutral color scheme. Its own personality is due to continuous micro cement flooring, the application of acoustic foam to walls and ceilings, which dignifies the bare or exposed structure of the market, and the use of materials with patina like rattan and sisal or the tiling with small ceramics format that covers the leading element in the room, the catwalk. The space is completed with a wonderful show-cooking kitchen, opened to the main dining room and to the terrace.

On the upper floor, a space mainly thought for suppers and drinks, due to a less outgoing character conferred by the cover that surrounds it. Darker colors but the materials employed in the first floor are remained. Here the main element is a set of hanging luminaires joined with wicker, designed exclusively by MESURA.

A theatrical kitchen opened to the dining room, similar to the one in the lower floor, and a private room with a privileged view of the square complete this area.

This design, exclusively done by MESURA, characterized by a shameless, bold and flavored graphics with a first quality market cooking fills the ingredients of this recipe that predicts to be a meeting point for autochthonous and foreign people in the renewed neighborhood of the Barceloneta.
