Entry Description:

We were directed to provide a modern restaurant, feature an extensive wine collection and provide opportunities for group functions without demising the space. Aria means air in Italian, but it is
also associated with opera. The design had to embody both lightness and drama, achieved in the course of the day as the light filled room at lunch morphs to a dramatic stage for dining at night. The
confined site, soaring height, exposure to an open mezzanine and a building lobby provided many challenges. Use of art and artisanal work became major part of the design solution.
