The restoration work involved the entire building with the flagship store extending over five floors.Each floor featuring a different atmosphere, with different functions at times blending, at others dividing to give the customer a unique experience of discovery, shopping and gastronomy. The large staircase connecting the five floors serves to give a sense of unity to the environments and can be interpreted as a single extensive pantry. The interior is inspired by Peter Greenaway’s cult film “The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover”. At the level of visual communication, the entire building is conceived and focused on the contrast between kitchens and dining rooms.
