Rice Club

The restaurant renovated in Valencia by Francesc Rifé Studio is rational and elegant, and features a mobile lattice system that divides the space in a dynamic way.

The essential meaning of the project by Francesc Rifé Studio comes from a desire to emphasize the gastronomic values of the founders: “There is no modernity without a good tradition”. Barcelona-based architect’s aim was to lead the restaurant towards a transition into a more rational and simple project. The project is an act of balance between two features: the color brown, and a lattice system, both fixed and mobile, that transforms the restaurant, through an intelligent and dynamic way, in a completely cubic and sober space.


The mobile elements are repeated throughout the room transforming into fixed walls. They are in charge of subdividing the spaces in rooms of different sizes, allowing to have from private of unique tables to areas for more diners. As a guest material, gray concrete unifies previously existing pavements, giving the space a neutral continuity. A calm sea that gives a sense of uniformity to the Rice Club, highlighting the brown color and wood.
