문화를 풍부하게 하고 공간을 살찌운다.
내츄럴한 분위기의 빈티지 재료들의 매치는
간결하면서도 그리스의 해리티지를 느낄 수 있다.
외부로 부터 유입되는 익스테리어의 요소는
카페의 천장과 벽면이 되면서 무한히 확장되는 교류를 느끼게 해준다.
가끔 이런 생각이 든다. 내가 나이를 먹어서 빈티지가 좋은게 아니라
원래 클래식이 가지고 있는 힘이 공간을 풍부하게 만들면서 좋은거라고.
-사실 어렸을때는 무조건 새것이 좋았다.- 저기 보이는 햇빛 잘들어오는 첫번째
자리가 내자리였으면 좋겠다.

The Capanna’s design focused on the experience of eating outside – something common in Athens if you consider that the weather is warm enough and sunny most days, all year round. Therefore the façade needed to be adaptable to the given circumstances, floor to ceiling windows slide upwards merging the interior of the restaurant with the exterior side-walk. With an upward movement, the restaurant spills out onto the pavement, inviting pedestrians to come and dine. The sliding wooden window frames, and the Italian inspired graphics on the façade are homely and alluring as they render the space with the atmosphere of an Italian courtyard.
Once you closely observe the Capanna,
you realize that familiar materials add up to that homely and alluring
atmosphere which is extended to the interior design. The
characteristic French style narrow wooden shutters are the main design
element; of course these shutters are not only ‘French’ as their name
suggests but are rather European in style and can be widely found in
Italy and Greece among other European countries. The vintage-like
shutters which prevail throughout the interior design clad the volume
of the mezzanine level where the restrooms, kitchen and storage room
are conveniently located. Underneath the mezzanine, sits a burning oven
and the pizza bar which are enclosed within a travertine stone box
that sits in the far corner of the space framing the Pizzaiolo.
A pallet of familiar materials to both Italian and Greek cultures is applied where cement tiles, stucco plaster, travertine stone, blackened steel railings and traditional tiles with a geometric motif of a past era all make up for the backdrop. The floor is laid out in grey cement tiles, but in the double-height area, in an attempt to stress the height of the pizzeria, a geometric motif of patterned cement tiles creates a wide strip that continues onto the adjacent wall. The tiles’ dirty-terracotta colored motif brings a feeling of a vintage-like, past era, feel; however, what changes the tone of the backdrop is the grey stucco plastered walls and ceiling which enclose all the design elements in a minimal envelope. A suspended blackened steel staircase which connects the mezzanine with the ground floor only adds on to the minimal design.
Nonetheless, a modern twist is added to this fusion design with
Scandinavian style tables and a remarkable selection of vintage
industrial chairs by the Greek based Temporary Showroom of Mr. Alketas Pazis.
The furniture adds softness, while the suspended terracotta clay lamps
in the double-height area somehow penetrate to the floor with the
geometric motif tiling. But what will definitely capture your attention
is the mural by mural artist Joanna Burtenshaw
– on your way up to the restrooms, Burtenshaw has created a biro
drawing which illustrates the process of making fresh pasta, inspired
by the traditional design of the restaurant’s tableware.
The arrangement of purposefully designed elements, domestic resources and materials and the vintage furniture, creates an architecture which balances the bespoke elements, creating a stimulating and sociable atmosphere in a homely environment.
