Spanish architect Pedro Scattarella has completed a pizzeria that looks like a warehouse in Gava, Barcelona.
Three-metre-high shipping containers line the walls and integrate shelving displays, cupboards and bathrooms.
A bright red tiled bar occupies the ground floor of the restaurant, while warehouse signage decorates the exposed surrounding walls.
A staircase leads up to the first floor dining room, which is furnished with wooden packing crates and clashing red and green chairs.
We've also previously featured a hotel that looks like a shipping warehouse - take a look here.
Here's some more explanation from Pedro Scattarella:
This pizzeria/restaurant of Italian food is organized in two plants. The kitchen, open to the view of the clients, is in the access plant.
The bar occupies the whole plant and changes its form according to its use (aisle for waiters, table, traditional bar) and a small hall with a view to the outer terrace. On the top plant is the restaurant hall.
The kitchen dominates all the access, open and elevated to reinforce the show cooking idea. The pizzero works in an outstanding situation, and like on a stage, his/her cooking is looked at by everybody.
In order to join the two plants, we designed one double height in the corner of the building, that marks the main access and it communicates visually with the top plant. The bar, round in center of the space, and the lamp spider (made with Desk lamps) unite the two plants vertically.
It is inspired by the New York harbour warehouses. This idea is sensed from the very moment the customer gets in since a container, the merchandise boxes and the industrial lamps can be seen. Once on the top floor, the customer feels he/she is in a true wharf of merchandise transport.
4 real size containers dominate all the hall of the top floor and they are given different uses (office, bathrooms, vip room and exhibition showcase).
The waiters furniture is also boxes to transport merchandise. The result is a modern atmosphere that surprises the visitor.
