A culinary reference point for the whole Altovicentino area
An area, a place for people meeting:
the historic Belvedere restaurant in Piane di Schio.
The project was born from the need to enhance a place for people meeting: the historic Belvedere
restaurant in Piane di Schio. Never before in our time have restaurants environments become physical and
non-virtual areas of important relationships for family, friendships, business.
Very often, observing the trends in interior architecture of the last ten years, we are witnessing the
creation of real “communicative stagings”. Public environments are so full of meaning and they often turn
into spaces that are difficult for the final user to interpret and understand.
Most of the time, this happens when the project denies, for the most disparate reasons, any connection
with the environmental context in which the public exercise is physically located. This cannot happen in
the spaces that the Battiston family has made available to its customers for over forty years. The fortunate
landscape context in which the Belvedere restaurant is located, with its recognized role as a culinary
reference point in the upper Vicenza area, strongly suggests to its owners the radical choice of total
exaltation of the surrounding landscape.
All this translates into a technically simple gesture of replacing the masonry, in the building’s fronts that
look down on the landscape, with glass. Stopping to contemplate the quietness of nature is the most
suitable choice in a time that pushes to conform your activity to the fast running of modern times. The
renovation of the internal rooms started precisely from this concept.
Beyond the functional adjustment, in terms of a greater service space necessary for the activity itself, the
real strength of the new project lies in the replacement of the 70s style windows towards the valley with
total sliding glass walls, full height, giving life to an internal space flooded with light and totally projected
towards the landscape. A renovation that does not substantially change the external architectural nature of
the building, showing upstream, towards via Capitello, the same image desired by dad Ferruccio, founder
of the business in 1971, but which radically distorts the space internal image and atmosphere, making full
use of the exclusive geographical position and naturalistic potential of the external environmental context.
In the inside, the distributive reconfiguration of the routes and accesses creates expectations, guidelines,
optical cones. The era of immense restaurant halls is replaced by the fragmentation of privacy, to add
more intimate spaces for conversation, in which dialogue and the being together of people harmonizes
with the external environment, while admiring the fifth of the Veneto region from this ” restaurant-
