Goodrich has created a design for a restaurant in New York City that softens modern architecture with warmth and refinement.
The emphasis on live fire, central to Ci Siamo's culinary identity, is reflected in lighting and material choices such as terracotta and glazed ceramics, forged metal and blown glass, in order to express a parallel between the cooking processes and the artisanal process.
To create intimacy in the modernist base building, the design sees natural materials paired with warm lighting, softening the modern architecture with warmth and refinement.
Custom decorative light fixtures were designed to enhance the architectural lighting scheme. The warm, diffused lighting throughout the restaurant reflects the flickering of the live fire in the dining room.
