The design team at Sandra Tarruella Interioristas must be feeling incredibly proud right about now; its design for a gelato shop entitled Rocambolesc Gelateria took home a prize at the UK and International Restaurant & Bar Design Awards.

Located in Girona, Spain this gelatria takes on the design aesthetic of Burton’s iconic Willy Wonka Chocolate factory. Although the theme is rather eccentric, the designers kept it simple with lots of open space and clean lines. However, the walls are jam-packed with items such as clocks, gauges and other scientific trinkets and gadgets, to give the place an old-fashioned factory or science lab feel (Not to mention the candy-striped wall fixtures!) Any gelato aficionado will love walking into this nostalgic little place and feeling like they’ve been displaced into a different era.
