Babbo Italian Eatery - Phoenix AZ

2008 ASID Arizona North Chapter Award - Honorable Mention


This new restaurant, located in North Phoenix, utilizes elements of the very efficient plan layout developed with this client in a previous restaurant in Surprise, AZ also planned and designed by FoRM. The size and shape of the suite is quite different than the Surprise location, which allows for an original and unique design concept. A combination of line and form define the design of this casual Italian restaurant and bar. The strong linear expression developed in the millwork detailing, wood veneer light fixtures, slat back chairs, and wide-stripe booth back fabric, is balanced by the simple and clean wall and ceiling planes, as well as the rhythmic placement of the glowing drum pendants. A warm, earthy palette of materials compliments each other to set the stage for a great evening with family and friends.
