The design and selection of materials is directly inspired from modernist character of the neighbourhood and the modernist style building which host the restaurant. The characteristic modernist colour combination of light blue and white surfaces determinates the material- palette of the project, which is enriched with untreated beech in custom-made claddings and pieces of furniture. The addition of new ceramic flooring in black and white pattern brings lightness to the space and creates a direct dialogue with existing dark marble flooring was maintained in great majority of the space.
The large memory game, in solid beech and polished ceramic with printed patterns, refers to the old grocery concept and the notion of memory in food and taste. Metal frame sliding doors of the facade maximize the flow of natural light in the space,and once opened the barrier between interior and exterior space vanishes. The Mediterranean garden planted at the perimeter of the building with aromatic herbs such as lavender, sage, lemon and olive trees, completes the visitors experience with smells and colours underling in the main concept of design.
