Text description provided by the architects. Romanism and contemporaneity are musts. A never banal romanism that can easily be read in the materials such as Travertine flooring, grit from the 30's and the intense tavernian feeling mimed by the furniture. A balanced dialog between neutral colors translated in contemporaneity: a blackboard (home for daily thoughts and words), a hazelnut colored hardwood flooring and shiny whites from the majolica.
Walls become three-dimensional through steel grooming, home to an excellent range of high-end wines and their fabulous colors that attire the visitor eye and shifts the attention to the daily menu written on the walls. Shelves with their potteries are designed in an accurate and elegant way, pleasantly collocated between tables like old taverns used to and easily reachable by the Taverner himself.
This is one of the projects that carries the Noses autograph: different flooring materials that blend in a uniquely way, emphasized by simple and tactual furniture. Other things that you can enjoy are the industrial chandeliers, ironwork appliques and lamps strategically used to exalt every minimum specifics.
Like in old Taverns, The Cucineria offers a direct contact and view of the Cooks, reminding the visitor that the Taverner runs the house, he's the host and, of course, a trustful person. This project gravitates around the spectacular Pizza furnace, a monument to fire and a celebration to the more homely oven and the intimacy of the family, a signature in the Roman traditionally based restaurants.
