Teatro del Sale
The location is in what was once a warehouse in Sant’Ambrogio market.
Two spaces on the street, one internal and some disconnected rooms must be transformed into a place able to connect restaurant and show activities, with a small actual theater. We worked on the levels by leaving a ramp at the entrance, as if the road enters inside.
A glass front collects the “machine” of the kitchen on the ground floor, while the systems on the upper floor are closed by red glass. The bases of the concrete columns become iron supports for the clients. Inside, lounge armchairs alternate with one hundred red director’s chairs for the spectators.
Studio Benaim worked on the internal renovation and the interior and furnishings design of Teatro del Sale.
