Infused by the simple confidence and energy of Rome, the interior environment has been opened up and layered with a fresh, textural and tactile palette.

The base palette includes concrete, zinc and oak, punctuated with accents in black and saturated olive green.

A new oak-topped high bench, lined with Forest Green Italian marble, faces the plaza and is positioned to provide a sunny spot to enjoy the street life.

The original bar retains its central anchor point, but provides more seating and a new zinc top.

Adjacent to the bar, a new long, low communal table completes the range of seating options providing a spot for intimate conviviality.

The refurbishment of the former Popolo restaurant retains the bar and key services but layers these with new linings to create a fresh and cost effective new personality for Marta.
