neowe brings the italian renaissance to luigi’s ristorante bar in ankara

turkey based design studio, neowe, has created ‘luigi’s ristorante bar’ situated on the first floor of atakule AVM, a landmark in the heart of ankara. the project is inspired by the idea of clashing traditional sicilian interior features with italian renaissance architecture. the scheme comprises of 3 main components; an entrance, a bar and a dining area. the entrance consists of two parts. firstly is a display window which includes the client’s personal collection of specially designed antique cuisine and art pieces. secondly is the entrance hall which contains stained glass, metal frames and hand-crafted blue lacquered wood panels.

ankara-based branding agency, mineral, provided identity for the logos and they collaborated with neowe to create a coherent visual identity of the brand. the iconic silhouette of the bar is painted and manually over-coated with a different color to give a dramatic silver tone. the beveled mirror and stainless-steel staircase emphasize the volume of the bar, while the white quartz counter top, wood paneling and hand-made blue ceramic cladding harmonize with the interior. the indoor dining area is surrounded with blue molding with famous italian quotes about food.

special plates are mixed with custom produced plates to create the logo of the brand. crystal bulbs become the diamond of the kitchen facades. this area becomes part of the facade with the art pieces next to the kitchen area. art pieces are produced with a family owned local company and the blue embroideries are stitched by tailors of the company. the short lemon trees, which are located at the built-in seating areas, pay homage to the sicilian inspired concept.
