A hybrid model of a supermarket, deli, take-away and retail store;
The Pantry offers consumers curated grocery items including quality fresh produce, ready-to-go meals, bakery items, flowers, wine and essentials along with a bespoke retail selection.
The concept was to draw on Eastern, French, Venetian and Italian design influences and combine them with local urban flair. The intent of cooking with wood and fire required an open kitchen layout that was to be experienced visually without interrupting the overall dining and spatial experience.
The overall concept of the Nostimo design incorporates a stronger family focus and influences of nature. This is visible in the inclusion of a pottery studio, kids play area, bakery, fresh produce display, coal oven feature and show-kitchen concept.
The approach to the design ultimately achieved a Mexican atmosphere without experiencing the space as predictable. Salsa Bedford Square is energetic and fresh- a new Mexican dining experience.
