Scenically situated right on the Odra riverbank in downtown Wrocław in western Poland, MARTIM is a Portuguese restaurant tiptoeing between land and water. Inspired by the cosmopolitan vibe of its cuisine, which infuses Portuguese classics with flavours from India, Brazil and Japan, local practice BUCK.STUDIO took advantage of the riverside location to transform the restaurant’s interior into a conceptual sea voyage – a tribute to Portugal’s seafaring accomplishments during the age of discovery. Swathed in colours and textures that echo Portugal’s identity, the restaurant’s sophisticated interior is imbued with subtle references that evocatively echo the culinary journey that the patrons are about to embark upon.
