synopsis : : Only 3 months was the life-span of time for this small mixology speakeasy. Due to the temporary nature of this project, the whole space was left as it was; a nearly pitch-dark lighting hid the existing elements of this old bad-looking restaurant. The very limited budget for this, was focused on creating a subtle linear lighting that would describe the perimeter of the space, without revealing it. This linear lighting was used as well to display a collection of dry flowers and herbs, the only element to create the mood for this space with a clear reference to the botanical approach of the cocktails there to be enjoyed : :
