designer arch. Marcella Campa / arch. Stefano Avesani / arch. Pietro Peyron location Beijing, cbd, China function italian restaurant area 360 sqm type Built Client Private year 2011
The restaurant is located on the south-west corner of an office tower in Beijing CBD district. Two large central walls define visually the whole space. They are composed as a collage of different patterns of yellow, red and grey bricks, in which the insertion of steel plates adds a detail of refinement. The mix of different natural and artificial materials offers a combination of rough and smooth surfaces introducing a sense of spatial tension in the generally cozy and warm atmosphere. The flooring of the lounge and the bar areas is made of light natural wood.
