En Tránsito is the third restaurant that we have designed for the González brothers, in Valladolid, after the completion of the Japanese Wabisabi and the Alioli tavern.

The aim was to design an interior in line with the company´s menu offer, which specializes in authentic and high quality gourmet burgers, and that would further differentiate itself from the typical aesthetics found in American burger joints.

Having the desire to create an original place, the concept lead us to propose a space with winks to car garages and courier companies, where austerity and simplicity of materials provide an urban and casual style.

To highlight the idea of a garage, we decided to cover all the walls with fiber cement panels, in contrast to these colder claddings, traditional timber formworks were used.  They are made of a set of strips and slats in birchwood that run throughout the walls, including the double space of the staircase and the glass facade.

On one wall, an installation was designed. It consists of 600 burger boxes (at 1:1 scale) made in bright white ceramic produced by Apparatu, a pottery artisan.
