Case Study

Our aim for Fiume, which is Italian for ‘river’, was to honour chef Mazzei’s native neighbourhood hangouts with a contemporary Italian restaurant. The result is a natural, relaxed restaurant with touches of luxe. Over-looking the river and graced with an abundance of natural light, we installed a retractable glass façade to take full advantage of the stunning views.
Natural materials were used throughout the restaurant, evoking a rustic but stylish Mediterranean feel, including oak and marble table tops and limestone and oak flooring. Inviting guests to dine at the counter, the long elm bar top with waney edge has a black honed granite front.
A theatrical open kitchen boats a traditional al forno bread oven and walls lined with handmade tiles. Italian Chiaro Travertine stone has also been used to create an impressive feature stone wall above accenting blue leather banquette seating. Outside the large piazza style terrace is lined with fragrant lemon and olive trees and terracotta herb pots, transporting guests to the Mediterranean landscape that inspires Francesco’s menu.
