The interior design of Pargot transports us back to the Art Deco movement of the 1920s, offering a reinterpretation that breathes new life into this aesthetic. The composition is built upon principles of symmetry and a harmonious interplay between color and geometry. The inclusion of diverse compositional planes creates a sense of depth, with elements unfolding as one approaches the space, introducing stenographic depth to the compact area.

At the forefront lies the public space, featuring two parakeets and expansive high bars accommodating four diners. The floor, low railings, and bars showcase a blend of white concrete micro terrazzo adorned with blue, yellow, and gray stones—a nod to the beaches and seashells found in the sand. The walls undergo a dramatic shift in materials, highlighted by a golden brass bun concealing a light source that bathes the bamboo-textured wall, casting shadows and emphasizing the plant's veining.

Beyond the bars, a small industrial kitchen is divided by a hot and cold area framed by a wall with two arches and sliding brass doors. When opened, these doors usher in a change of atmosphere, transitioning from gold to navy blue—an evocative shift that conjures a sensation reminiscent of the sea.
