The task was to insert the new functional elements necessary for a modern restaurant and bar into the historical and protected context. It had to respect it, but it should also be given a new identity for the restaurant and bar.
The existing room structure was used to createazone for the restaurant and one for the bar: the larger and lighter zone for the restaurant, the smaller darker for the bar. The few new elements were treated as a second modern layer, which was introduced into the historical space. Invisible integrated LED lighting, which colours can be changed according to the event and thus generate a respectively different atmosphere. A light gap between the new furniture and the existing let them float. All the new elements like tables, shelves and bar counter, are in the same antrazith-black raw iron.
