“Roma Caffé” – a vivid example of the combination of a restrained industrial style with the warmth of a home interior. The motif for this project involved bringing together the pervasively urbanized world frontier of the past two decades with the modern requirement for an atmosphere of order and comfort.
The café premises reveal a very elongated, stretched space with high ceilings, where a dispensing area and kitchenette were supposed to be.
In order to reduce the height of the room without compromising its overall lightness, three wooden planks - "balance beams" - were laid across the ceiling. These beams feature fans, lamps, and decorative elements including hanging menus, plates, spoons, ladles, and edible products, like cheese. The same composition is found on the wall where copper kitchen items act as ornaments. The center of the space boasts a kitchen and pizza shop.
The pleasant, low-key warm color scheme combines with the strict rhythms of vertical and horizontal linear forms to create a comfortable mood. The sense of ease is further conveyed by the presence of an industrial theme within the context of a domestic feeling.
Wood and aluminum comprise a large percent of the materials used throughout the space. Great attention was paid to lighting: no light fixture is the same as the next. The interior space is interesting and appealing at any time of day.
