This project by Studiounodesign is regarding an historical premises and is one of the more “happening spots” of Pisa.
This wine bar, cafe’ and restaurant has been revised, repaired, reestablished and restored with brilliance in a vintage style using lively colors and luminous paneling. Original or replica furnishings complement the style while displaying flagrant tapestries giving the space a certain allurement under every point of view, considering the fact that the structure dates back to the early 1500s.
According to research of sixteenth century architectural structures, the Tuscan style columns and inter-crossing archways such as that of a basilica’s nave, would belong to a building with an open gallery of arches that appears in a public square of Pontedera. Such open galleries would have hosted the city market in the beginning of the 1500s.
The sixteenth century structures are currently visible and can all be reviewed correctly from an architectural restoration point of view.
The space was constructed with the bar in the main area. The bar counter itself has retro lighting in the foreground decorated with laminated embroidery to form optical images. After the bar area is where the three other rooms start. They are pleasantly furnished keeping in mind the needs of the customers.
From the front to the back of the Cafe’ the colors of the walls and wallpaper are kept constant using different shades of white, while the frontal bar room is actually an explosion of colors, tapestries and striking wall decorations.
