Subdued, organic interior for Australian Osteria Oggi is an example of powerful architecture, achieved with very simple means. Conceived by studio -gram, the architects took advantage of the natural light coming from the tooth roof at the back of the restaurant.
Italian piazzas served as a main inspiration for the interior which is reflected with pastel hues applied onto the walls and sand, cobble-like floor tiles. Minimalist wooden furniture match perfectly with a long, concrete bar and marble table tops. The Italian spirit was also translated into the layout with plenty of communal dining spaces created around long tables – just right for a big ‘fagmilia’. Secluded seating hidden inside arch-shaped wall cut-outs offer a bit more privacy.
Architects said of the interior: “The most amazing thing about the space, is the way that it transitions from day to night. To truly appreciate and understand this space, one would have to experience it in different lights, from lunch through to dinner.”
