Located within a trendy and nice neighborhood, the Emporio Baglioni stands out for real. This is the restaurant design by Rocco Vidal which provides a relaxing but modern feel to the restaurant. It has a very unique exterior façade with entrance that seemingly resembles the neighboring gates. It may look ordinary and common on the outside but upon closer scrutiny the entrance is designed to emphasize the connection of both the private and public spaces thus the continuation of the promenade.
The contemporary and sober sense of this hospitality design emanates out of every corner. The design floats right where it is needed and it emphasizes the products and materials used for the entire concept. As a result, it became the best and beautiful restaurant that can be found in the neighborhood. Wood and stone were used in the façade which gives the space warmth and coziness not unusual with modern restaurants today.
The restaurant interiors and design allowed for natural lighting through and the fluid integration between spaces was apparent. The explicit details and splendid solutions made this an overall amazing restaurant.
The high ceilings with a shed on the side helped bring natural illumination into the entire architecture. The smart choice of furniture and the great use and placement of lighting fixtures made the restaurant a sight to remember.
The abundance of natural light into the entire façade is evidence enough that the owners wanted to bring the exteriors into the interiors in whatever way possible. It only speaks about the significance of the environment to the building. The use of stones on the wall became the focal point of the design while the use of wood gives the modernity a touch of what organic is. It gives the restaurant a comfortable feeling allowing customers to enjoy their food as well as the interior design more.
This particular project invests on rationality and simplicity rather than glamour and prestige. It emphasizes the importance of space thus maximizing the design concept. The architectural language of this restaurant is fluid and concise while the use of materials specified and defined its personality and served as a great backdrop for the products offered. The combination of wood and stone within the façade has created a welcoming and accommodating atmosphere necessary for any restaurant.
This design is truly inspirational and the restaurant served its purpose without compromising on design, style and modernity.
