Appreciation towards Studio Modijefsky for providing the following description:


Formerly a bakery, the shop was characterized by two distinctive features that influenced the new design: the clear functional division of the space, and the traces of time visible within the tiled interior.

The link with the past is already visible within the façade: blue tiles inspired by the old interior embrace the entrance and visually connect with Otto’s logo. The lettering, built of simple shapes and profiles, connects the outside with the inside, where the space is unified by the same design language.

When walking into the building from the main street, a layered and inviting environment unfolds. Wood runs on the floor and climbs up on the bar and walls, giving a sense of warmth. Above the wood, a set of tiles, laid in the original pattern used from the bakery, pays homage to the history of the space. Speckled tiles and horizontal mirror slabs on the wall extend towards the center of the restaurant, inviting the visitor to walk further.

Halfway down the bar a sudden change in the floor is visible: exactly where the owners of the old bakery had re-tiled the floor there are now yellow tiles. These, just like the wood, continue on the bar and visually extend on the yellow concrete counter, giving the space a strong accent point. Hanging from the ceiling, and inspired by the letter T in Otto’s, is a light element which also functions as a menu display and glass rack.

A bit further, the bar opens onto what used to be an open-air space. The memory of the outdoor character lives in the use of wooden furniture, the green color of the walls, the tiled floor and the accurate placement of plants. These elements, carefully balanced with a sapient use of light, create the illusion of a patio.

Continuing further from the patio, walking towards the kitchen, the atmosphere changes: the warmth of the wooden floor softens the space, the long sitting areas encircling the kitchen give a sense of home and the beige tones of the tiles remind us of the flour and water used to make the bread.
