Tentacoli e Cozze restaurant by Sipala Tripi Architetti, Siracusa – Italy

December 2nd, 2016 by retail design blog


Tentacoli e cozze occupies the ground floor of a historic building of Siracusa, proximity to the sea and the nature/style of the building inspired the concept of this restaurant. The materials used for the furniture are similar to those the Ortigia’s visitor finds himself at the dock: wood, rope and net.


The wood in the wainscoting, slats, painted with a brush, covers the rooms and part of the furniture. The ropes that structure rooms, marking the passage, featuring the building’s original stone arches, are met again in few seats.


The net in chandeliers, strongly inspired by traps of the fishermen and in the furnishings like the bottle holder at the restaurant entrance.
