    FIUME ITALIAN RESTAURANT FIUME意大利餐厅 Type Interior design Program Restaurant and wine bar Location Beijing, China Area 90 sqm Architects RAMOPRIMO Design Team Marcella Campa, Stefano Avesani Collaborator Yang Que Client Omar Maseroli, Yuanyuan Kun – Mercante Home Cuisine Year 2014 Photo www.ramoprimo.com FIUME Italian Restaurant Project description The design of the restaurant, facing the Liangma He River in Beijing and surrounded by trees, is inspired by both the environment – Fiume means river in English – and the Italian largest River Po, hometown of the restaurant’s owner, and plays with some feelings and reference elements ideally connecting the two rivers. The main space is characterized by contrasts of rough and polished surfaces along with the attention to details of the crafted iron joints that define a lightly vintage and cozy atmosphere, emphasized by the amazing view to the riverside. Specifically designed lighting fixtures made of green colored metal bars and hemp cord textile cables define a delicate movement of waved water and ephemeral ropes. Small recessed lamps, which can be dimmed down to create a warmer setting at night, are dotting the space and playing with reflection effect of multiplying the depth on the large glass façade. The floor of reclaimed wood from Suzhou along with exposed rough concrete ceiling contributes to outline a relaxed ambiance. White diamond tiles, translucent glass and teal trimming iron joinery on both bar counter, cashier desk and kitchen walls radiate a slightly more modern feel reflecting light in different ways. On blank walls, some mirrors, cartographic maps, old photos and round shaped art canvases will all play with the theme of river and contribute in creating a nostalgic atmosphere. Access from the lower level of the riverside has been cut into an existing wall. External space has been simply renovated by removing an old damaged staircase and covering the run-down structures with concrete plaster and rusted metal mesh. ADDRESS: 麦子店西街39号富驿时尚酒店1层 Read Less
