New Valvona & Crolla restaurant off Multrees Walk by Reaich and Hall Architects
Vin Caffe Restaurant & Shop
Text received from Reaich and Hall Architects Jan 2005
A new concept wine bar, espresso caffè, restaurant and retail shop in Multrees Walk at the heart of Edinburgh’s city centre. VinCaffe, recently opened, offers a city centre venue for Valvona & Crolla Ltd. – undoubtably one of Scotland’s finest delicatessens.
The project was completed to a very tight programme and opened to host Gordon Brown’s ‘Piggy Bank Kids’ charity and Nigella Lawson’s Scottish book launch of ‘Feast’.
The architectural expression explores creating an interior architecture which somehow expressed the client’s new venture yet also evoked a sense of having been there for years.
The first floor contains a restaurant and private dining rooms, this is expressed in a palette of rich, simply detailed materials notably walnut floor and wall panels. The ground floor contrasts with the upstairs. Here the brief was more ambiguous, “a shop combined with eating and drinking, a place to drop in and converse.”
