48 Urban Garden: outside inside

This restaurant is a real UFO. It breaks down the barriers between indoors and outdoors, and nature grows up on the tables.

Adjoining the Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Centre, the 48 Urban Garden restaurant was designed by a young duo of women architects from the AK-A Studio. The room is divided into several zones and continues without any break on to a terrace. This forms an ensemble that is landscaped like a garden, where plants grow everywhere. The green-coloured bar accentuates this natural dimension. Small bouquets of herbs are also placed on the tables. These, like the chairs, benches, and armchairs are wooden and evoke outdoor furniture. This is accentuated by the kitchen, which is installed in a metal Airstream caravan. Vegetables are grown in the restaurant's kitchen garden and picked on site. The kitchen cultivates freshness and expresses it from the Indonesian chicken skewers through to the caramel candy floss and hazelnut cookie. In the evening, come in for a cocktail. They are all excellent.
