Osteria Nino Sketchbook

These sketches were developed for the Osteria Nino project in Burlington Massachusetts. Much of the imagery we considered during the design process was based upon post war Italian, cinematic, minimalism - Mostly using elements of industrial steel as in the cold-rolled steel windows, a factory like use of brick, and a Meat Packing District reference in the metal awnings. The interior would be spare and functional - yet a fun place to be. More Alfa than Ferrari. We also explored using color variations derived from the logo of football Club Roma.
