Olive-green tiles custom-made by DECOCER for a very special street-tavern

Decocer ceramic tiles clad the main façade of an authentic tavern, Trenkaclosques, "groundbreaking and rogue" as it calls itself. The highly glazed olive-green tiles fill the space with light and colour, giving it a great personality. A project made to measure with small format pieces from the firm Decocer and designed by Armonic Consultores (technical projects, works and installations).

Walking through the narrow streets of the historic quarter of a small Valencian town on the Mediterranean, we come across a surprisingly modern and lively space. It is a daring, high-quality tavern that fuses street cuisine with the best local ingredients.

This place, called Trenkaclosques, takes its name from a local expression meaning jigsaw puzzle. Inside the modern venue, a wall covered with olive-green ceramic tiles by Decocer covers a large part of the restaurant, giving it a touch of liveliness and personality.

This space is much more than just a place to eat; it is an experience that combines the contemporary with the traditional, fusing flavours and cultures. The design of the restaurant and its cuisine are a jigsaw puzzle, and in the end all the pieces fit together in an innovative way. The atmosphere is relaxed, youthful and full of vitality. The gastronomic offer is exceptional, standing out for its excellence in every dish. 

Decocer tiles form the backdrop to the restaurant.

The interior layout of the restaurant, created by Armonic Consultores, is laid out in a single room that accommodates both high and low tables, as well as a bar and a cocktail bar, creating a welcoming and versatile atmosphere. The bar and the work area, each with a tiled backdrop, are strategically arranged and open to the diners, inviting them to observe and participate in the culinary process.

The visible façade of the small tavern has been uniquely decorated with small-format tiles designed and custom-made by Decocer, giving the space a strong personality. These glazed pieces, measuring 7.5X30 cm, have an irregular shape and feature a subtle relief on their surfaces. Their intense olive-green tone is visually striking and noticeable from the outside.

The olive-green shade of the delicate tiles is known for its earthy appearance, with a subtle nuance that combines shades of green, yellow, beige and brown. 

The ceramic used has a very high intensity glazed finish, which causes it to reflect light exceptionally well throughout the restaurant. This feature further enhances the establishment's ambiance, creating a luminous effect that amplifies the feeling of spaciousness and brightness in every corner.

The layout of this cladding has been carried out vertically and using the so-called "three-quarter brik" format, which adds a distinctive style and unique geometric movement.

In the back bar of the cocktail area, we utilized a hexagonal 17.5x20 cm beige-colored Decocer porcelain tile, enhanced with a camel-colored graphic to generate harmonious geometric patterns. These patterns echo a jigsaw puzzle, symbolizing the restaurant's unique philosophy.
