Danish atmosphere in Magasand Columela by Juan Carlos Fernández, new fast-food restaurant in Madrid.

More and more, fast food restaurants are less a reference for standardization or improvised decoration. A good example is Magasand Columela, the second fast-food restaurant opened in Madrid by the chain. For this project, Juan Carlos Fernández Arquitectos renovated an old grocery store and converted it into a space inviting to enjoy both its menu and its fresh vintage decoration.
Their challenge was to create a bright space out of the two-floor grocery shop. To achieve that, the team used materials such as natural iron, OSB and oriented shaving boards and combined them with a well-studied lighting project –indirect and warm- allowing to generate a cozy contemporary ambience.

The furniture chosen by the architect in collaboration with Batavia’s professionals was another wise move, as the combination of pieces offers a simple clean atmosphere with the essence and aesthetics of the Danish modernity. The tables are designs from Arper and Materie Grise; the chairs are from the Italian brand Horm and the lights from Polls Potten. All of them are combined with unique original pieces from the 50’s by Danish designer Hans Wegner.

The result is a fresh versatile space, ideal for tasting a healthy menu made up of daily creams, deluxe sandwiches, salads and home-made cakes anytime in the day.

And that is not all; like in the chain’s first restaurant, there is a reading area with wifi connection and fashion, design or architecture magazines to buy or read, all in a space that is both fresh and warm.
