TPH: The Public House in Budoni, in Sardinia
TPH is the acronym that stands for “the public house”, that is a meeting place.
It was built on an idea of Emiliano and Giuseppe, who after years travelling around the world decided to go back to their origins in Sardinia.
They choose AFA to transform the oldest house of the village into an original, fresh, young, and “cool” place.
The pub has an indoor and outdoor part.
The indoor part is mostly occupied by the light wooden counter.
Immediately above it, made with the same material, there is an hanging shelf where some bottles are placed, with the aim to highlight the distinguishing feature of the pub: the huge variety of beers.
The glass refrigerating room underneath the counter shows some kegs from which draught beer is tapped.
The choice to highlight elements that are normally kept hidden (the kegs) aims to give a modern and original touch, while maintaining the idea of an environment that gives a glimpse of the past. This is enhanced by violet LED lights, which together with the television in the corner, evokes the night-time atmosphere of a pub.
In front of the counter there are small tables and stools made of white fireproof faux leather. The dark olive green and beige walls help to illuminate the room.
The spotlight system ensures that specific areas in the room are highlighted, in particular the sitting area.
In the outdoor part there are white chairs and tables, a claret gazebo, and the floor made with wooden boards.
Elements that once again give the idea of a convivial environment that support the tradition, but at the same time maintains fineness and order, thanks also to the color combinations.
TPH is the right place for an aperitif after the sea, a tasty dinner for all budgets, or a cocktail in the evening.
