T.Bar, located in Panama City, took natural food a step further by bringing nature indoors. While the restaurant serves fast, causal food, they place an emphasis on natural, healthy fare. On their Facebook page they say they want guests to feel relaxed and cozy in their space, but they didn’t stop at comfy armchairs or the booth seating lining one wall. Flourishing plants really create an atmosphere of peace.

According to a post written on Archilovers by Dos G Arquitectos founders Ivan Grippaldi and Ginette Gotti, they drew inspiration from the “inner courtyards that are so common in the old quarters of Europe.”

Gotti and Grippaldi said they intentionally offered different types of seating for varying hours of the day, from the modern chairs designed for a quick lunch to the booths meant for those who can linger over a meal or cup of tea. According to the architects, T.Bar requested that patrons be able to watch their food being prepared, which they accomplished through “a glass.”

Concrete planters for the trees include tiny tables to allow patrons to get even closer to nature. The designers said this touch adds to the informal feel of the restaurant. Lichen and moss grow on living walls on both sides of the restaurant and in the back near the bathroom.

The interior design of the restaurant takes green design literally, bringing the outdoors inside.
