Once you’ve passed through the neutral diffusely lighted hallway, your senses travel to the farther Peru or Chile and the word “fusion”, which was the starting point of the whole projects, is beginning to make sense. The whole signature ambiance is created by intelligently putting together totally different elements. “Eclectic” may be one word to describe it, but “fusion” would be much more appropriate, considering it also referring to the gastronomy area. Hemingway used to believe that eating was an intimate act. Nowadays, the spaces where the meal is served are multi-purposes, many of these being more significant than the primary one, or the feeding purpose itself. In the long run, these spaces have become a significant driver in communication and communion, socialization, escape and leisure, a trigger for all senses, not only for the taste. Think about a space which takes people to the origins of a gastronomic culture, guides them through it and makes them witnesses to its meeting with another. „Fusion cuisine” came with the Europeans’ invasion of America, with the Maoris’ invasion of Spain or the Asians’ migration to South America, mainly in the Peruvian region.

The recently opened Pizzeria is the second of its kind hosted by Maria Fuchs, a vanguard in the recent “genuine pizza” hype in Vienna. The name “Disco Volante” brings back memories of the James Bond villain Emilio Largo’s escape vessel. Also a famous car designed in the early 50ies carried this name (there has recently been a relaunch by Alfa Romeo). But in fact does the name of the pizzeria simply refer to its original meaning “flying disc”.

GrasSea Ristopescheria is located in Fondi, a little city in Italy, near Rome and Naples.
The theme of the project was to embrace with a single architectural gesture the space able to contain the different types of activities that take place inside the building. Fish Market, Restaturant, functional space and external space were to appear as a single continuous space, accessible at the functional level and at the level of perception. The Design also had to be modern, bright and with references to the marine theme, of course, reinterpreted in a modern key. The ceilings with flowing lines and dynamic, the wooden flooring which then becomes the kitchen wall that recalls the jetties piers, the stainless steel doors and windows, the circular windows placed high up on the window, are all internal references to the marine theme. The rest of the lines, including the slots game on the kitchen wall that make it visible, the monobloc bench coated in resin, rimarcate with illumination with specially designed, make the functional environment, just like the modern and dynamic activities that takes place inside it. Particular attention was paid to the lighting sudio. Exist 3 different types of lighting according to requirements. Definitely the most distinctive and visible element is the bright ceiling track that combines all the space visually, and that cuts the wall up to get off the ground. The outdoor area covered attracts more of the classic tavern fishing style, with a ambient and lighting warmer and traditional. Like a path between two different ways of living and seeing the sea. YO.DAA has also worked on the creation of the logo, the creation of the website and the development of the brand, along with the implementation of the architectural design.

Rosan Bosch Studio has developed a unique interior designed to encourage and support the collaboration and stronger sense of mutual identity between cultural institutions at KulturØen in Middelfart
KulturØen is a place where different cultural activities meet under the same roof – the local library, the local tourist information, the local cinema and café, as well as conference facilities and a restaurant.

We aim to change the way we ate and chat in restaurants. The acoustic quality of restaurants contributes to the comfort and enjoyment of a dining experience.
We have experimented with noise levels in relationship to the comfort of dining and the ambience a cave like environment can create. The timber profiles generate a sound studio atmosphere, and a pleasant ‘noise’ of dining conversation, offering a more intimate experience as well as a visually interesting and complex surrounding.

The new (rediscovered) wings of the Hôtel de Galliffet
Mirror reflection: strategy of lightness
The new architectural wings of the Hôtel de Galliffet will be enigmatic and surprising appearances.
Logics of composition, materials and formal repertoire push the architectural bodies towards an expressive vocabulary for which the terms of lightness and permeability prevail.
The strategy of inclusion aims to give the new buildings a kind of perceptive dematerialization; this way proceeding the partial clogging of the courts will assume a character of agreement and co-operation rather than imposition.

Haldane Martin Iconic Design has designed a brewery and restaurant interior for Mad Giant beer that plays with scale referencing oversized metal toy construction kits. The result is a creative and welcoming industrial space that brings to life the DIY ethos of the renegade South African craft beer, while contributing to the urban regeneration of inner-city Johannesburg.

Finished in 2010, the Pompidou Metz center imagined by Shigeru Ban quickly became an architectural icon not only for the city of Metz, but also for the region and even the country. Given the important number of visitors to the Museum and the restaurant, the need for more inside eating space on the terrace soon became apparent. However, the idea of intervening on an existing building does not come without important implications regarding architectural integrity ― the intervention will indeed modify the façaces and volumes of the existing structure.

Spaces, motifs, materials and light evoke the atmosphere of the Caliphate in the pursuit of a complete andalusian gastronomic experience
When Paco Morales embarked on the opening of his newest restaurant in Córdoba, he parted from a clear and ambitious premise: to regain and reinterpret Andalusian cooking from an avant-garde andhaute cuisine perspective. Therefore, the Cordoban chef didn’t conceive NOOR as a usual restaurant, but as a “cultural project” which would provide diners a complete gastronomic experience, that is, an actual recreation of what a palace banquet at the 10th century Medina Azahara might have been. Thisrequired going beyond a mere gastronomic proposal and involved all aspectssurrounding NOOR: from architecture to staff clothing, taking care and pampering every detail about decoration and tableware.
