Nicola Ghilardi meets his friend Alessandro, returning in Italy after a demanding and intense barman experience in some London pubs and dreaming about opening his own pub in Italy, to be able to propose his cocktails, his beers, his burgers & eggs and his Tea-Time…. and he’s dreaming, dreaming, dreaming And, suddenly, it breaks out the Mad Hatter, the architect character, creating a magic potion Challenges. The Mad Hatter Architect catches sight of Alice, fallen in the White Rabbit hole, drinking the “DRINK ME” magic potion…. and here is where all the magic to create a fantastic place, where anything could happen, any spell could become reality. The design is based on the idea of revisiting a traditional old English pub and, by sprinkling it with the magical powder, transform it in the Wonderland, where to meet Alice and her friends. The final result places the customer sipping a drink, totally absorbed by the fairy tale, sailing between rabbits, grass walls, huge clocks and teapot-shaped lamps, yet in a typical Old London pub atmosphere, standing at the Victorian bar, shedding a multicoloured light illuminating his astonished face while, enchanted, he’s looking at the Union Jack suspended in the trees.

Zuieva Katya and Olga Malyshenko (AKZ Architectura, Kiev, Ukraine) were requested to design a new bar in Kiev. The task was very interesting: create a space that fundamentally different from all the Kiev bars that include bricks, wood and rusty metal. Designers feel absolutely free in their creative decisions. So they take the conception of Naïve bar about sparkling wine and try to show in interior the essence of this drink – the lightness and a sense of celebration. The bright and in the same time gentle colors with the returning 70th style that displayed in furniture with “Art Deco” style bathroom create the space where you whant to forget everything and “just drink sparkling wines and cocktails and feel happy”.

Piuarch’s design of the new Ekaterinensky Congress Center in Krasnodar, Russia, has been appointed for construction.
Located on the banks of the Kuban River, the design proposes a three level cultural complex, with a total floor area of 2,840 square meters. The plans include a conference hall with a capacity of 720 seats – which can be set up in different configurations – as a foyer, a restaurant, a bar and service areas, all the while offering a scenic view of the river bay on the side of the city, and a new pedestrian plaza where the entrance to the center will be located.
The building will also feature terraces on the roof and outdoor spaces on the ground floor, which allow for the expansion of the internal functions.
The project has offered Piuarch the opportunity to activate the relationship between the city and the river by designing a connection among the natural water environment, the coastal parks, and the urban area: reconfiguring the city’s interaction with the river.

In converting this Ryokan (traditional Japanese Inn), in the mountainous holiday retreat area of Yugawara, outside Tokyo, we were inspired by the beautiful surrounding landscape of forest and rivers, and the esteemed traditions of Japanese crafts. We sought to combine richly textured natural materials with traditional Japanese crafts and patterning, to create a fusion and layering of these two elements, and form a beautiful contrast.

Mesa Napoles is a gastronomic space in the crossing between Kansas St. and New York St. at Colonia Napoles.
The Project is a response to the low gastronomic offer in the zone and has the intention of becoming both a landmark and a meeting point.
Occuping the low level and first floor almost in their entirety, the intervention of this space responds to the principle of creating visual and physical permeability between the establishment and the exterior.

Alma Negra talks about an ancient stationery conversion in a wine restaurant.
The project aims to meet some strict conditions: a long and tight plot and normative heights that didn’t allow the preservation of the existing mezzanine.

Birraria Giori is located in the centre of Ferrara at the feet of the Este Castle. Its prime location meant that it was very important to take into consideration the historical surroundings. The design was based on the principle objective of restoring the front of the bar which is part of series of arches facing the town hall, know as the “covered way”, part of the Vice-Legato palace dating back to 1877. The primary aim of the project was to “clean up” the original structure or design, stripping off the numerous additions and modifications from over the years to reveal the original form and materiality of the arch, and to provide continuation with the rest of the walkway. The gazebo remains intact, and the windows and a new second ceiling are designed around a motif that reflects the famous lantern which burns at the foot of the Este Castle. The interiors are characterised by the use of wood and stone, the shades of the plaster and the tones of the interior reflect the the equilibrium between the old and the modern. The triangular facets of the new bench seating and also the ceiling, decorated with golden flashes, are based on the rustication of the Palazzo dei Diamanti, the most important historical building of Ferrara.

The design for BuonaBocca winebar in Beijing revolves around the use of the brick as central decorative element. We were playing with local cheap materials and with the existing condition of the space to make the most out of it. In particular, we were creating some brick patterns on wall based on our “Hutong Material Catalogue” research that were recently developed for the last edition of Beijing Design Week 2015. We were also designing logo and V.I., customized furniture and two large geometric custom-made chandeliers to evoke the surprise and festivity feeling of the town festivals in south of Italy.
