STAJ Napoli Noodle Bar, 2021

FADD Architects as Architects

STAJ Napoli. The new restaurant by FADD Architects in the Vomero unites a New York atmosphere with oriental street food. The Neapolitan firm FADD Architects signs off the project of the new noodle bar Staj, which is in the Vomero district of Naples and entirely dedicated to oriental cuisine.Previously a typical Neapolitan restaurant, the renovation project was inspired by the space’s own characteristics: a regular plan, high ceilings and four great windows on the front, which confer great brightness.

The main choice was that of dividing the space, but to not use a wall to do so. So the choice fell on dividing the space resorting to non-invasive architectural elements, and on guaranteeing both privacy and a global perception at the same time.The architects explain that “Moving the access to the central area to the right side, we found inspiration in the informal New York mood, both formally, with the integration of two cast iron columns dating back to the beginning of the 1900s that add movement to the space, and functionally, in this way the space can be enjoyed at any time of the day”.

Answering the client’s request, the space’s sectioning was reduced from three parts to two, following the desire to have a semi-independent entrance area and the restaurant area in the same section as the outdoor space. Especially in summer, this allows for inside/outside continuity thanks to the open windows.The entrance, which hosts the custom made wooden bar and display rack, is defined by a black and white marble checked floor and by walls covered in sage-green panelling.

Going up three steps you access the main room, again with sage-green walls enhanced by Flos Camouflage lamps, it is characterised by wood flooring.The custom made furniture, uses small sofas both to reinforce the informal character of the space and to make better use of it.The kitchen can be seen from a tape window, similar in style to the windows at the front. Lastly, the toilets, which are accessed from the main room, show a minimal and iconic style, with the input of Saletti furnishing accessories. Staj is an informal location with an international feel and unites a retro taste with trendy design.
