Spicy Setting


El Curry Verde, a Spanish vegetarian and vegan restaurant, recently relocated to larger premises in Puerto Deportivo de Hondarribia.


The restaurant, which serves a selection of international dishes, organic wines and draft beers, sought an interior that was both fresh and inviting.  The space also had to be practical in order to meet the demands of evening dining and hosting cooking workshops.

Hiruki Studio, a Barcelona/Donostia-based firm that creates bold design concepts and bespoke interior solutions, was appointed to develop the 175 sq metre space.


Hiruki divided the interior into two main areas: a bar with informal high tables and a dining area, representing a complete change of layout from the previous restaurant tenant.


A large tiled bar was installed, bespoke furniture created and colourful lamps and plants introduced.  The colour palette is predominantly white, with strong accents of yellow and turquoise, that is combined with honest wood surfaces to create a warm yet bright space.

Hiruki Studio was founded in 2014 by Gisela Arroyo Pacheco and Lorea Salaberria Agirreburualde after they collaborated in various projects in Barcelona.
