Textual content description offered by the architects. The well-known and energetic Lisboeta Baixa-Chiado, has a brand new area for individuals who desires to eat tasty and wholesome, all the time surrounded by a snug and stylish design: The Inexperienced Affair Vegan Restaurant. On the facade, a golden metallic circle broadcasts the singularity of the area. As soon as inside, a small room lined with tropical wallpaper and stuffed with mild wood tables and raffia chairs offers to the shopper a heat however contemporary welcome.

Whereas ready to be attended, we are able to begin dreaming tips on how to refresh our throat selecting the wine we could have in the course of the nice meal, due to a wall/wine wardrobe that separate the corridor. This ingredient, esthetically curated with darkish inexperienced metallic and mid-brown wooden, all the time with golden particulars, it’s not solely a practical ingredient, nevertheless it turns into additionally a welcome card. Climbing the pure wood stairs, we discover a big area, with totally different ceiling heights and materiality, making a dynamic room with quite a lot of ambiences. The tables product of inexperienced pure stone, the wood chairs, the leather-based darkish couch, the mirrors compositions, and the golden lights will carry to the diner internal peace and class spirit.

Lastly, the third area: the bar. To don’t forget the place the restaurant is situated, this space turns into just a little jewellery piece that recollect the most common Portuguese architectural contact. Right here we are able to discover tiles, geometrical wood artisanal particulars, and probably the most well-known stone of Lisbon, the limestone. In short, the overall idea for this area searches a balanced mixture of supplies and pure colours, the place the juxtaposition of the weather with sturdy colours and comfortable textures creates an intimate surroundings of consolation and magnificence.
