Swedish architecture practice Claesson Koivisto Rune used midnight-blue surfaces and "dreamlike" wall illustrations to create a timeless aesthetic inside this Stockholm bar.

Portal bar has been decked out in dark hues to contrast the "blonde and bright" interiors of the already established Portal restaurant next door, which opened back in 2016 under the helm of chef Klas Lindberg.

Short flights of stairs lead down to more intimate seating areas and the main bar, where a structural column has been fronted with chalkboard so that staff can write up food or drink specials. Here larger windows have also been installed so that passersby can see the bustling activity of the bar from the street.

The basement plays host to a green-tile test kitchen, anchored by a stone island where guests can participate in cooking classes, have private dinners, or sample dishes being trialled for the restaurant next door. Timber doors that were about to be thrown away but discovered by chef Lindberg on the street have been used to close off the space.

Much like Claesson Koivisto Rune, Francesc Rifé Studio also opted for darker tones when completing the interiors of Merkato. The market-style restaurant in Valencia features coal-coloured surfaces and blackened timber furnishings.
