Living Contemporary Restaurant – Restyling by SGS Architetti Associati
Contemporary restaurantLiving was established in May of 2003, inside of the Ex Postal Office characterized by a privileged view on the splendid scenery of the Arco Della Pace. This unique restaurant was restyling by SGS Architetti Associati in 2016.
There was a desire to create a place alive both inside and outside, where the relaxing comfortable environment could cohabit with the vitality of a dynamic space, where sophistication and charm of typical Milanese style would blend into conviviality and natural Argentinean spontaneity of the owners.
The recent restyling gave new vitality to interior design maintaining the internal distribution which includes the bar counter as the protagonist of the place which works as a joint between two areas of the luxury restaurant. To emphasize this important point it was decided to replace the old coating with stripes of Nero Marquina marble cut in diamond-shaped section. The same material was used for tabletops and coverings of bathrooms where the tiles of different height and width create a geometrical pattern.
The dining chairs of enclosed forms rest on tapered hardwood legs, upholstered with the cotton fabric of green shade by Dedar, summarizing in itself the formal elegance and comfort of the whole restyling. The environment is completed and characterized by walls which encase two dining rooms, decorated by paneling of painted wood, and frame large seats of retro shapes which are embellished with hand-woven handicraft silk with oriental motifs.
The recent restyling has given new life to this modern restaurant, maintaining the distribution system that sees the modernbar counter as the protagonist, acting as a hinge between the two dining rooms dedicated to the part of the lounge.
