Once up on a time, Iccarus dreamed that someday he could fly…Centuries after that you have several options to have in mind, but nothing compares with what Park Associati has to offer you! In milan, a temporary structure has been installed on the rooftop of palazzo beltrami in Piazza della Scala. Designed by Park Associati, the ‘bird-view’ rooftop Milan restaurant can be readily relocated, potentially existing in a variety of striking locations.
The scheme can also host events where leading chefs are invited to showcase their skills at special cooking functions. the pavilion is open to the general public for bookings, and one single table can accommodate 24 diners engaged in a unique experience (or 66 standing people for special events); for the occasion sliding walls can be used to separate the kitchen area from the dining area.
The table lifts up to the ceiling and the space can be completely opened up. Window-doors providing access to the outside terrace have been placed along the longest sides of the dining area.
This modular Milan restaurant, which can be assembled in just two days, is made out of a modular structure consisting of eight individual blocks measuring 3.3×2.2×4.6-5.9 meters. This relatively small scale means that units can be transported by road and installed by crane. The pavilion is covered with a perforated anodized aluminum skin in shades of bronze and gold, with the envelope held in place with hidden supports.
Internally, the restaurant is divided into two areas. while the kitchen is geared to the demands of professional catering, the dining area is arranged around one single table and surrounded by foor-to-ceiling glazing. If necessary, the two volumes can be separated with sliding wall panels, while the central table can be lifted to completely free up the space. So, do you know where to eat in Milan today?
