Nobook
Nobook is an unconventional and innovative restaurant that wants to surprise its customers with the creativity of its menu. The design is based around an industrial aesthetic, exposing brick walls, graffities referencing Basquiat, open ventilation units and high ceilings. 

 

The open kitchen, painted in a striking peach orange to match the team’s uniforms, stands out as the most spectacular element. Overall, the space seeks to awaken a feeling of surprise, of the unexpected and a feeling of curiosity which precedes the gastronomic proposal.

Burger Boutique Black
​The interior design concept started with just a single triangle. The single 2D element, the triangle, acted like a fin and was used in three different shapes/angles to break the monotony and create a more compelling look. Those fins then were connected to the wall which created a three-dimensional element. 

To contrast the concrete finished fins the rest of the finishes were primally black which complements the brand name and color. Various black finishes & textures were used to create a classy atmosphere.

Hola, La Mer
Hola embodies the concept of “Latin America meets the United Arab Emirates.” the space translates this idea into a colorful, spicy, bright, joyful and fun beach café. 
 
The reclaimed timber wood used on the floor and the ceiling connects the restaurant with the seafront and depicts a modern take on rusticity. The colorful patterned ceramic tiles, the weaved-like lights, the steelwork and the glass openings frame the place to mimic the style of the cafes found on the Spanish coastline, which also symbolizes an open invitation to come in and enjoy a holiday-like atmosphere.

Mayta DIFC
The main idea was to create an industrial yet cozy place related to the world of tattoos. The bar is designed as a sculptural element with the  overhang mesh ceiling inspired by the tattoo detailing.
 
The mezzanine with its peculiar pipe railing creates the VIP area on the upper floor and a more secluded area in the area below. 
 
The use of pipes, concrete, exposed installations, metal mesh and plates, vintage furniture and lighting, as well as Stefano Alcantara’s art mark the industrial-vintage style of the place.

The Nest
Just like forest guides you to explore its treasures with its natural pathways, the layout creates a journey that unveils the mystery of the place, starting by the “immerse” walk, passing by the indoor herbal gardens, to the beautiful bamboo features until you reach the Nest (dining area).
