A few years after the opening of Hotel Lone, Restaurant L – one of three restaurants in the hotel, was rebranded as ResoLution Signature Restaurant. 3LHD was involved in the transformation of a part of the restaurant space into a show cooking kitchen that will be used for presenting new techniques to chefs, for cooking schools, teambuilding activities etc.
The design and the atmosphere are based on the recognizable Hotel Lone design with a somewhat modified material repertoire. Smoked oak wood and American walnut discreetly supplement the dominant terazzo floor and lattice ceiling, pointing out that the function of the space, and its character, has changed. The kitchen leaves an impression of a modern and cosy “home” kitchen, despite its professional equipment.
It is separated from the rest of the restaurant by a series of rotating glazed panels that may, depending on their position, allow or block communication between spaces. As it is intended for food preparation, the central location of the space is an island equipped with four professional work positions, visible to most guests/participants who are freely seated at modular tables in the surrounding area.
A simple outdoor kitchen is an extension of the interior, harmoniously blended with the existing ambience of a green restaurant terrace, positioned to attract the passers-by and not take the guest’s attention away from the dining experience.
