From the architect. The shell that houses the restaurant- Karaiskaki Stadium, which is built over the water, was a benchmark in the design proposal.
The wave of the sea that existed in place is introduced in the design of the space in the form of an optically moving roof element. This element, which is the result of parametric design, dominates the environment and gives identity to the restaurant.
Strong feature of the composition is the elongated bar, consisted of 300 cooking pots. The bar is an art installation itself, where the identity of the object is lost to highlight the visual impression created by its repetition and correlation in space.
The linear layout of the floor plan is framed by successive separate rooms and the overwhelming ambience of the stadium.
