Mirroring and tiling
In this renovation of an existing restaurant in Kos, we are looking for ways to connect many different spaces within a restaurant that serves more than 1000 people every day. The basic aim of the design is to make the tenant of a hotel -who visits the restaurant two times per day- obtain many different images, included in an overall proposal. Thus, individual restaurants, such as a garden restaurant or a floating restaurant, are created. The concept of tactility is being sought after in every space as it strengthens the intimacy and the idea of handmade, so much needed in the digital age. The necessity of surrounding ourselves with surfaces that have particular textures and colors is answered with the selection of glossy, complex textures and patterns, fabrics with strong references to the natural, such as leather, as well as the enhancement of the concept of collecting and exhibiting objects. The contact with nature is achieved here with references to vegetation and the augmentation of the contact with the aquatic element, either literally or pictorially. In this way, many individual stories are created, which make the user’s stay in the restaurant, each time, a special experience.
