"Architecture is lived in while art is looked at; this is a fundamental diference. Architecture is a physical and sensory experience because you go inside it." Ettore Sottsass

What is the Costa Smeralda, what does its essence consist of?
This was the frst question we asked ourselves.

When we think of this part of Sardinia, we think of granite rocks shaped by the wind. The curving materiality of the granite is warmed by the sunlight and by the refections of the crystal-clear sea, and interacts with the lush greens of the Mediterranean scrub.

The power of the wind erodes and carves out the granite formations, turning them into architectural structures that can be lived in.

The restyling project for the Myrto restaurant is an opportunity to pay tribute to this area and to tell its story. Architecture becomes a tool for narration and dissemination.

The interior space takes on the features of a cave with sinuous shapes and Sardinian earth tones that render the atmosphere homely and intimate and bring to mind an ancient idea of the Mediterranean. The outdoor patio is also transformed into an interior space, an underwater cave with a lightweight roof that reacts to the wind and sunlight, and provides a glimpse of the sky. In these abstract, curving spaces, coloured furnishings and volumes play in contrast, creating a palette of greens that echoes the hues of the landscape. The materials, colours and furniture were chosen and designed specifcally for this project, resulting in a site-specifc concept.

Myrto has been a presence for 9 years at the Promenade du Port, a hub of art, culture and design in the beautiful setting of Porto Cervo, bringing an innovative approach and experiences that are both surprising and intimately connected to the sense of the local area. At the same time, Myrto's approach is equally innovative with a concept in which gourmet pizza and haute cuisine interact in a synergistic, intriguing, and unique way.
