Text description provided by the architects. The 185-seater space is composed of 2 main dining spaces; the cantina is an oversized whitewashed space with an exposed wooden beamed ceiling & voids which soak the room with natural light.
Textural palette comprised original architectural elements mixed with the new – painted concrete flooring and rendered walls ground custom joinery, bespoke terrazzo benchtops, custom tables & leather bench seating.
The cantina opens out to Totti’s courtyard. The outdoor space adopts a peaceful palette of mostly whites & greens drenched in sunlight that filters through the two 50-year old olive trees planted during the rebuild to create privacy from the neighboring residential block.
