REM \ A Roberto Mercoldi Architecture : Mahalo Restaurant

In the heart of Ponte Milvio, the historic and lively district of Rome (Italy), is hidden a green setting sunning even the coolest evenings of the eternal city: the Mahalo. Designed by the REM \ A Roberto Mercoldi Architure transalpine studio, it is a cozy and colorful restaurant drawing inspiration from Caribbean culture.

Under a greenhouse mixing metal frame, polycarbonate and abundant vegetation is the only rectangular room of the establishment 65 square meters. The client then enters a tropical atmosphere where nature seems to have resumed its rights.


But, surviving this invasion of exotic plants, chairs and tables in pastel shades are scattered over much of the surface. The long central counter separating dining and preparation space can accommodate up to seven guests on high stools, allowing them to attend the development of their Hawaiian pokes - a typical dish made from raw fish. Made of stainless steel and patinated and discolored wooden boards, it recalls the beach sheds.

A refreshing universe surrounded by monochrome green walls of water, echoing the Caribbean Sea.
