The project’s main feature is its large vegetable garden that runs along an irrigation ditch on the sunniest side of the outdoor area, defining its perimeter with patches of aromatic plants.
The vegetable garden, far from being merely ornamental, has the dual purpose of giving the setting its all-round, multi-sensory appeal – by pleasing the nose as well as the eye – and at the same time providing the kitchen with fresh and locally grown ingredients.
In the rest of the garden, thin wooden structures, reminiscent of Meccano construction sets, form a pergola for vines and roses.
The restaurant is composed of two indoor rooms and two verandas – the smaller one shaded by tall bamboo sticks; the larger one overlooking the vegetable garden.
As far as the interior design is concerned, a large larch wood shelving unit, designed to resemble vegetable crates, stands out in the first room; the lights are made of colourful cables attached to well pulleys and old wine jugs and the bar and wainscoting are made of zinc-coated iron.
