The new address is signed by the OREKA Architecture agency. At its head, David Granata known for his complete artistic achievements, in particular, the Salama restaurant and the Ocoa beach in St Tropez. This time, it is in Megève that his talent is revealed...
David Granata and his team took on the challenge of designing a high-end festive mountain restaurant from A to Z in just two months.
A project designed in collaboration with the owner-operators who gave carte blanche to the architect to create a conceptual identity and revisit the codes of the traditional chalet.
The main idea: mix materials, ambiance and atmosphere to evoke an impression of warmth, well-being and tradition for customers. Exit then, the too obvious codes of the mountain chalet. Here the rustic side of wood blends with warm fabrics, dazzling colors and a play of lights that plays the card of a trendy restaurant more than an aging Savoyard address.
Cherry wood, rosewood oak, zellige, velvet, terry cloth, zinc and brass... So many soft and warm materials that give a "Friendly and Funky" energy to the different spaces of this alpine cocoon.
The place recreates the relaxed atmosphere of a welcoming chalet with custom-made banquettes, sofas and bookcases.
David Granata intervened on the redistribution of the exit from the kitchen to the bar room by creating a baffle and a pantry to facilitate movement of the teams. He also created a zinc counter to bring character to the space.
In a hushed decor, the restaurant wall is pixelated with zellige. The stairwell is, for its part, made of backlit wooden trellises which gives a certain elegance to the space.
OREKA Architecture revisits here to perfection the codes of the traditional chalet while providing softness and comfort.
