Below the door handles to Cevicheria, there are fish stamped into the door, while above the handle, birds are flying. This helps to create the beach ambiance that is carried inside the restaurant. However, the stamps in the metal create intrigue for passersby when they glance in and see an octopus suspended from the ceiling, making the doors more than just a pretty decoration.
The exterior of this restaurant is as unique as its interior. Situated on the bottom floor of this elegantly baroque building, Cevicheria's light spills onto the cobblestones, illuminating the sidewalk, inviting guests in. The ocean ambiance of Cevicheria starts with the light spilling from the restaurant onto the sidewalk and continues through the heavy steel doors that have fish stamped into their lower halves and birds stamped into their upper halves, creating the illusion of an ocean.
The colors and textures in this space create an ocean ambiance. The bright blues of the floor tiles play off the white walls and bar, creating the illusion of sand and sea, while the metal doors with shapes of birds and fish stamped into them allow in plenty of light, giving customers the feeling of being at the beach.
When guests enter Cevicheria, they see large steel doors stamped with fish and birds, creating the first layer of the restaurant's ambiance. Then, upon entering the building, guests are greeted with the view of a majestic octopus hanging from the ceiling. These two details, along with the colors and textures in the space, make guests feel as if they are spending the day at the beach.
