Authors’ Comment

Serving specialty coffee and long drinks, the place receives its visitors in a luminous space. The inspiration came from the combination of a minimalistic design with an industrial, austere one, with a strong blue note inspired by Wes Anderson, which embodies the owners bold and positive attitude towards art. Soto is rather a café-bar-gallery, an unusual mix that draws people to art. The owners wanted to host exhibitions, so the possibility of dapting the space appeared. This has led to the blue "shutters" that can be closed or opened, creating a different colour game on the wall, as well as an exposure system.
