The Michelin-starred in Pesaro
NOSTRANO by Stefano Ciotti, the starred restaurant of the multi award-winning chef, it has been redecorated again with a new look by the architect Andrea Trebbi from Cattolica; the transformation by AFA Arredamenti.
The location is the same, on the Pesaro seafront, with a stunning sea view, but the restaurant has been completely modified to satisfy the increasingly precise and specific needs of the landlord, following the typical aesthetic canons of the designer.
The restaurant is elegant, sophisticated, where the strong presence of natural light is modulated by wooden sunscreens that recall the characterizing elements of the facade of the Hotel de France in Guinea by Jean Prouvè from 1953, but which differ from them thanks to the use of skillfully oxidized natural wood, managing to give the environment a warm sense of peace and tranquility that pervades the main space of the room.
The architect, in his work of total transformation of the restaurant, always remains respectful of the space he has found, and of the bond that the chef claims to have with some elements of it; this is why the entrance, its canopy in corteen with the ceramic sign, remain the same, but they are enriched thanks to an internal backdrop with a geometric play of brass elements, acid-etched by hand by the designer himself, which ennobles the space entrance and creates a visual filter that does not reveal the interior.
The same goes for the corteen column with the word Nostrano, it has been kept unchanged but enriched in its new dialogue with the partition in oxidized wooden strips separating it from the kitchen, with the reception desk in brass which is also oxidized, with the iron tunnel black that leads to the services.
Between this area and the actual room, a "decantation filter" where a small lounge area is located with custom-designed seats in beige leather, and an "extra-clear glass box" to create the physical filter of the cellar, which thus assumes that necessary visibility and importance.
The room is characterized by the use of etched brass which designs the backlit ceiling and which creates the bases of the tables in resin and white pigments, each worked as a unicum, as if it were a work of art that refers to the colors and perception of the nearby shoreline.
