Fucine di Buttrio
From service station to bright bistro.
Regional road 56, Buttrio, Italy. An old petrol pump has been restored by architect Marco Zito for the Danieli Group and is now a café featuring a stunning Lapitec top.
Marcello d’Olivo’s unique design from 1962 featured an exceptional arched cantilever roof with an impressive 11-meter overhang, supported by ten columns. This architectural masterpiece became a renowned local landmark over the years but unfortunately fell into a state of neglect more recently. However, thanks to the recent efforts of Marco Zito, the building has undergone a comprehensive redevelopment. The objective was to preserve the distinctive elements of the original design while enhancing its efficiency. This redevelopment is an integral part of a larger masterplan known as ‘Le Fucine’, which encompasses a hotel, sports club, winery, and wellness area.
The ideal material: sintered stone
Sintered stone, renowned for its resistance and non-porous surface, is the ideal material for bar tops, restaurants, tables and desks. Its remarkable attributes include easy cleaning, preventing dirt buildup and bacterial growth, and steadfast durability against the impact of UV rays, time, and most chemical agents normally used for cleaning and surface maintenance.
