Caffè di Mezzo
Castelfranco Veneto, Italy
Streamlined delights, where simplicity meets flavour
The guideline for the remodelling of the Caffè di Mezzo, located in Castelfranco Veneto near Treviso, is the idea of creating essential space with the intent of conferring it elegance and balance.
The space, located on the ground floor of a twentieth-century building, overlooks the arcades surrounding a beautiful medieval castle. The main feature of this bar is its twenty meter long rectangular shape.
Stepping into every hue of white
The new space is organized in two functional areas: the first, for service, is defined by a long linear counter cladded in white corian and with a bottom light cove which grants it a sense of lightness in the space. The second area is the one reserved to the customers, and it’s characterized by a bench upholstered in white leather which runs longitudinally and turns around the walls at the end to emphasize the continuity and wrap the space as much as possible.
The longitudinal direction is reinforced by the use of the wood flooring laid in the same direction and by lacquered wood planks cladding the wall above the bench. To give maximum strength to the perspective, linear light coves are located in the dropped ceilings and immediately above the bench’s backrest.
