A DINING EXPERIENCE
A restaurant is the place for social gatherings, food experience and memorable moments. Beyond its initial purpose of feeding the human body, the purpose of such place is to emphasize the sensual perceptions embedded in the basic activity of eating, by creating the perfect setting for it.
Each element of the space [dining, kitchen, bathrooms…] should thus be considered as an active part of the setting, countering the idea that the served space covers and hides the serving area. The space should therefore be ideally approached and constructed as a stage-set, with a scenario that considers these various elements.
Keeping in mind the idea of satisfaction and pleasure in this short-term lived performance, we will explore the possibilities of different experiences in term of communication and interaction, disconnection in times of social distancing, gathering, visual experience and comfort.
