Boulebar is about the community. With the help of pétanqu, food and drinks, you want to make people feel comfortable and socialize. The experience is a distillation of a warm French early summer evening at a bouleodrome in a suburb of Marseille – the gravel, the light from the streetlights, the people, the city and the trees that surround the pétanqu courts.

Boulebar is part of a larger trend among restaurants where food and drink experiences are combined with some form of activity, in this case, pétanqu.

All locations have a coherent identity, but with varying expressions and feel depending on the surrounding neighborhood of each restaurant.

Besides looking at architecture’s aesthetic, functional and spatial qualities, all our architecture must have clear and attractive communicative qualities. It shall contribute to and strengthen our client’s core values and profile by strong architectural expression.

Communicative architecture state that in every project there is a clear link between final results and the inherent characteristics that a brand, an organization, a place or an individual possesses at the beginning of the design process.

We always strive to achieve unique solutions through creative processes, which measure an open and participatory approach, building on the knowledge that the entire project team possesses.

Communicative architecture is the result of a process where the architecture correspond directly to the client’s intentions, acts as a visualization of a company’s identity and that naturally puts the function in focus, packaged in a clear and expressive form. All around us communicate!
