in milan, a temporary structure has been installed on the rooftop of palazzo beltrami in piazza della scala. designed by park associati, the ‘priceless’ pop-up restaurant can be readily relocated, potentially existing in a variety of striking locations. the scheme can also host events where leading chefs are invited to showcase their skills at special cooking functions. the pavilion is open to the general public for bookings, and can accommodate up to 24 seated guests around one single table, or 66 standing people for special events.

the building, which can be assembled in just two days, is made out of a modular structure consisting of eight individual blocks measuring 3.3×2.2×4.6-5.9 meters. this relatively small scale means that units can be transported by road and installed by crane. the pavilion is covered with a perforated anodized aluminum skin in shades of bronze and gold, with the envelope held in place with hidden supports.

internally, the restaurant is divided into two areas. while the kitchen is geared to the demands of professional catering, the dining area is arranged around one single table and surrounded by foor-to-ceiling glazing. if necessary, the two volumes can be separated with sliding wall panels, while the central table can be lifted to completely free up the space.
