Rattan is a bar-restaurant, located on the main road of Faliraki district in Rhodes. In Faliraki, the architectural anarchy and aesthetic confusion are dominant. Consequently, our main goal was to create an interesting, visually protected interior scene and a spacious shaded terrace. The exterior pergola was designed in such a way as to create a considerably high volume, unified with the main building, which creates minimal and balanced facades.
Furthermore, by the placement of vertical wooden blinds on the lateral sides of the terrace we achieved camouflaging the ugliness of the neighboring buildings, while at the same time shading and protecting the terrace from the strong sun of the island during summer. Between the blinds and the building, a variety of plants contributes to the feeling of an outdoor garden and even more, functions as a natural filter against noise and air pollution and cools the terrace during the hot Greek summer days. The main bar is centrically placed on the terrace creating a more cocktail-bar atmosphere, having a bunch of rattan pendant lights on top, while on the top level, inside the building, there is the open kitchen which functions together with the interior bar that serves as a «delicatessen».
