“THREAD” RESTAURANT AND BAR LOUNGE IN COLLABORATION WITH CLUBMED / SICILY

THE PROJECT IS AIMED TO CREATE INTERIOR WORKING ON SPECIFIC ASPECTS OF THE CURRENT FORMAT OF HOLIDAY RESORT IN SICILY. CLIENT’S SPECIFIC NEED IS A LOW COST INTERIOR SOLUTION FOR KAMARINA RESORT RESTAURANT. THE BEST WAY TO DO IT IS BY ADDING VALUE AND BY KEEPING TO THE MINIMUM THE RECONSTRUCTION. ALSO IT IS IMPORTANT TO GIVE IDENTITY TO THE SPACE WHICH BLENDS INTO THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.

BUILDING CONSISTS OF TWO FLOORS AND HAS A VIEW TO THE SEA. IT IS THE MAIN AND NEAREST BAR IN A DAY TIME FROM HOTEL BEACH. IN THE GROUND FLOOR THERE IS A BAR, MULTIFUNCTIONAL AREA AND IN THE FIRST FLOOR THERE IS A RESTAURANT.

INSPIRATION FOR CONCEPT CAME FROM SICILY LANDSCAPE, WHICH HAS MOUNTAINS, SEASIDE, CITIES, COUNTRYSIDE’S AND ALSO SUN, SAND, WAVES. VISION OF THAT WAS FROM LOOKING TO THE PICTURES AND REALISING THAT EVERYTHING LOOKS LIKE MADE OF A LOT OF THREADS, FOR EXAMPLE, MOUNTAINS, CITY, SEA. THOUSANDS OF SMALL THREADS MAKES ONE BIG SHAPE IN EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE. THREAD IS SHAPE, FLOW, CIRCULATION, MOVEMENT, PASSAGE, DIRECTION. IN ADDITION TO THIS THREAD CONCEPT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO ADD SOME ELEMENTS AS A ATMOSPHERE OF TRADITION AND TO COMBINE CONCEPT OF THREAD AND TRADITIONAL SICILIAN ORNAMENTS TO DESIGN INTERIOR SPACE FOR RESTAURANT AND BAR. THIS COMBINATION WAS TRANSFERRED IN A MODERN DESIGN WAY TO THE SPACE.
