The new 75 Café&Lounge by Lissoni Associati in Italy
In the heart of the mountain village of Ponte di Legno (Italy), Lissoni Associati studio has designed the new wine bar and bistrot 75 Café&Lounge starting from the design of the ground floor spaces which have been transformed into a single area configured around three intercommunicating rooms: a bar area with counter, a central room with tables and benches and a lounge area.
The intervention, located into a tyipical village house, also included the renovation of the façade with cladding in dark stained larch wood, the regularization of the openings and the development of the external terrace.
The intent of Lissoni Associati was to take guests back to the warmth and traditional hospitality by realizing a contemporary space that reinterprets the stylistic codes of alpine architecture.
The lounge bar is characterized by interiors in dark tones where finishes and crafting typical of the area combine with contemporary elements and influences; in addition, simple and sturdy materials like the exposed stone of the walls, the flooring in brushed granite and the boiserie in heat-treated wood have been matched with modern materials such as steel, glass and metal profiling for the windows looking out onto the street and the landscape.
