Project: Beton Hala / Comunale Restaurant | Location: Belgrade, Serbia | Architect: Aleksandar D. Rodic
Building completion: 2010 | Photographs: Ana Kostic, Marko Todorovic
Comunale restaurant is located in Belgrade, an industrial building constructed in 1937, which stretches along Sava river port, five minute walk from the central city pedestrian zone. Once warehouse with six meters ceiling height and construction grid defined by concrete columns of 5.5 meters span, the place was converted into new gathering place of Italian cuisine’s lovers. As the name suggests, seating is organized with massive communal tables, made of steel, positioned both on ground floor and gallery, with wooden benches and bar stools. Focal point is bar counter, tile covered, where guests can observe the preparation of food.
