GEMA, an architecture and interior design company devised for CHICKITA, a flame-grilled chicken restaurant, a vibrant and playful facade coherent with the festive theme of the interior, thus establishing a lasting brand identity. The ground level opens onto the pavement through large inviting windows beckoning passers-by, especially at night when the warm glow of the lively dining room spills directly into the street. The frontage of the first floor is modulated by a series of shutters, each in a distinct hue, like the bars on a xylophone positioned on an ascending arc and creating a dynamic and memorable exterior.
Fusing traditional charm and current details, GEMA achieved a cozy and appealing space in a vibrant multicolor setting with bespoke furniture. The material palette uses wood with lively colored accents, such as strings and lighting fixtures to create an original atmosphere, inviting the customer to relax, linger, and order dessert! The lighting is judiciously coordinated to create at the same time a general cordial atmosphere and a more direct illumination of each table.
