Fusion restaurant in Beregazzo designed by Maurizio Lai Studio Architects
An imposing full-height façade cladding, defined by a mesh of metal mullions punctuated by geometrically alternating grooves, lights, and backdrops, characterises the FOUND project, a fusion restaurant.
The complex backdrop of customised fittings and the artistic colour scheme of the constructions, which is largely visible from the shop windows, stand out for the warmth of their combinations and contrast with the cold tone of the shell.
A luxurious cantilever roof gives the building an almost hotel-like identity, emphasising its hospitality aspect.
At the entrance, the flat ceiling, in a composition of bronzed mirrors, reflects and amplifies the space, while the curved sign characterises the interior design, from the barrel vaults in sequence, according to varying depths, to the hollow paneling, to the illuminated steel fabric partitions, which fragment the space.
In the main dining room, the sushi counter recalls the concept of open kitchen, framed by arched windows, marked by curved lacquered wooden frames.
The contemporary classicism of the project is enriched with greater scenography rooms: a three-dimensional and luminous suspended ceiling, created by scanning thick panels of high-density polystyrene, shaved, and painted with a chalk effect and shaped according to a design based on curved modules with different radii, develops at the front of the restaurant.
Circular playful and essential lamps at the same time, brighten up the room walls, playing down the more formal component of the location.
To complete the external project, a double-sided totem, about 6 m high, recalls the play of shaped and luminous metal nets.
