Koi Restaurant

box: arquitectos as Architects

Inserted in a hotel unit, in Ponta Delgada, the restaurant in open since 2004,
already presented some need for revitalization, despite the predominant relation
with the central courtyard of the hotel, characterized by its garden of strong
oriental inspiration and its mirror of water inhabited by carp [KOI].

It will be the strong relation of this space with the mentioned garden, which
presents itself as the project's generating idea, bringing the garden to the
interior of the restaurant, implying a total permeability of the spaces, interior
and exterior, emphasizing the spaciousness and brightness that define the space.

The restaurant is characterized as an interior garden, an integral part of the
exterior, mirroring the same symbolism and balance, with the presence of
vegetation that flows through the ceilings, in line with the various moments of
artificial lighting with scenic effect, and the acoustic panels that, in addition
to their primary function, assume the carp form: symbol of prosperity, longevity
and fertility.

Despite the overall general view of the room, several dining areas are defined ,
characterized by traditional tables and in more welcoming lounge areas, in order
to allow different ways of receiving, so the space can adapted to the various
meal times of the day.

The materials use choice was based on its nobility and resistance, in order to
guarantee easy maintenance without prejudice to confort.
