ACEC CAFE CALIFORNIA PUBLICATION PASSAGGIO COFFEE/BAR/RESTAURANT
Thank you AECCafe (California) for the publication.
For the Passaggio project our firm had to design a cocktail restaurant, which would be completely different from what we usually encounter. The clients requested a truly innovative and out of the box design, that would bring together elements of nature whilst achieving perfect harmony between the natural elements and the crowded metropolis.
Based on that mandate, we chose to decorate the rear wall of the bar with geometrical shapes, which included plants and recessed lighting. For the back yard, we chose an open garden structure, inclusive of broad array of natural elements. The end result is an ambient atmosphere, within the city, where one can relax and enjoy the delicious food and amazing cocktails.
Our mandate also included a request for a more private area, which we created through the use of an elevated floor with bespoke glass tables. For styling purposes, we included a customized vintage Mini Cooper vehicle as a decorative element. The private area also features a sky roof inclusive of natural elements, to complement the rest of the design features, as well as to provide natural light.
