208 Duecento Otto. Italian Restaurant in Hong Kong.
Seyhan Özdemir and Sefer Çaglar of the Award Winning Turkish Firm Autoban, designed 208 Duecento Otto, a 350sq.m Italian bar-restaurant in a buzzing neighborhood of Hong Kong.
Located in a former meat-storage warehouse, the two-storied restaurant features a bar and two separate areas for al-fresco dining on the ground floor, one of which is private dining room walled with wines. There is additional seating on the upper floor, and a metal staircase connects both floors, which seat 90 guests in total.
The blue chine tiles on the wall are custom made and narrate the story of an old Chinese book. Along with the tiled surfaces, natural and raw materials are featured throughout the space such as steel pillars, marble tabletops and solid walnut floors and ceiling.
