A synthesis of forms, materials and techniques of Italian tradition is the one that leads Andy Martin Architecture to an interpretation of architectural space aimed at rebuilding a faithful portrait of Italian taste.
This is the concept on which the philosophy of the Fucina restaurant in London is based, which is also found in the kitchen, based on organic products, sustainable and prepared with artisan techniques of Italian tradition
Andy Martin Architecture has solved design with a contemporary representation of elements that make up the rich Italian culture. The ancient handmade brick ceiling is shaped and deformed like a vaulted vaulted ceiling, inverted, creating a visually dynamic atmosphere in this restaurant.
The street view is obscured by a shield made of a steel frame and hand-colored glass panels that create an ecclesiastical environment along with lights and candles.
The marble floors recall the Olivetti building by Carlo Scarpa. Hand-picked wooden floors are the central part of the restaurant.
Along with brick, marble and wood, burnished steel is the dominant material and refers to the name 'Fucina'. Furniture is inspired by the tree - its branches, its roots. The large tables grow from the floor and the chairs are made from refined and worked branches.
