MODERN RESTAURANT DESIGN
How do you say Paris in Italian? It’s Parigi. This renovation project in Clayton, Missouri, was awarded an Interior Design Award from the St. Louis Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Susan Bower, architect of record; designed while at Mitchell Wall; photography Alise O'Brien.
“Named after the Italian word for Paris, Parigi was designed to look as if it were in the heart of the French capital…(this)eatery fuses Italian design inspiration… with a traditional bistro feel.
On the low wall by the booths, upholstered in a bright orange that was a popular color for Ferraris in the 1960s, is a line of large table lamps. Finished in copper, they offer diffused light while mingling with James Beard Award-nominated chef and owner Ben Poremba’s collection of copper pots and espresso makers.”
