The project, which takes the form of a court in the court, is the result of a modern transposition of the neoclassical characteristics of the building. The complex is composed of: a metal perimeter structure made of light metal composed of six round arches that reinterprets the geometry of the existing building in a coherent and harmonious way; a secondary structure embellished by a parallelepiped in treillage of beige-gray wood, which recalls the shades of the building and creates a sort of garden set in the urban fabric of the Quadrilateral; a base of almost 80sqm, covered with wooden slats, on which the tables and seats will be placed. The lighting, created by Artemide, has suspended ceiling rails and indirect light.
"The project wants to dialogue - comments architect Sonia Calzoni - with the monumental preexistence by introducing a contemporary sign inspired by the external pavilions of noble buildings"
«The court, accessible both from via Montenapoleone and from via Bagutta, recalls the typical space of the eighteenth century dedicated to meeting and resting - commented Paola Faccioli, CEO of Cova - Inaugurated in 2017 on the occasion of the 200 years of pastry, the Cova Garden now, thanks to the intervention of the Calzoni studio, it takes a more structured form to welcome guests at any time of the day, from breakfast to lunch, from afternoon tea to aperitif. We are also working on a series of initiatives, starting in May, designed specifically for this location, to involve pastry and art lovers and the world of art and culture ".
