Abstract

IVY represents a new way to experience and enjoy leisure time, being surrounded by the green of nature and the warmth of wood.

Outside the ivy will cover in time the entire facade of the building, \”hiding\” the existing wall and making the openings on the avenue, as if it was a real greenhouse in Reggio Emilia city center.

Report

IVY restaurant and lounge bar represents a new way to experience and enjoy leisure time, being surrounded by the green of nature and the warmth of wood. The interior spaces take back the historical building volume to a single open space , where the kitchen and the dining room connect northwards and the large central bar and the lounge on different levels southwards. The lounge seatings look out towards the street with a number of two places swings (seesaws), that transform the time shared with other people in a moment of pleasure. The space is characterized by the interweaving of different materials: concrete walls, the sandy look of floor, floor and ceiling plants.

Entrance and hall is arranged through a series of linear “hanging gardens” that surrounds the false ceiling falling down to the floor.

The project set up in the basement the whole system of service spaces and storage.

The plane trees on Montegrappa avenue represent the main reference of the project: they are so large to completely cover the building and are a perfect shading system for the facades on the road.

The flexibility of the multipurpose spaces is one of the cornerstones of the project, to ensure in time evolution and expansion both indoor to the historic building, and outdoor, in the open and service spaces of the plot.

The concept envisages the development on the cover of a lounge terrace, which will be realized in the autumn of 2017, while the open air expansion of the project has been built to open contemporarily to Fotografia Europea 2016, that has been held in Reggio Emilia from May 6 to July 10. The new edge has been defined by a set of corten boxes, which contains bamboo canes and embedded light system.
