The whole Steampunk inspired industrial, rustic, minimalist designs are a dime a dozen these days. But there’s nothing quite like when you see something done so right as this space in Italy. An old tobacco factory has been updated and renovated into a multi-use space that’s got a whole lot of style. Castello di Reschio has been converted into an office space, private restaurant, and exhibition space. Now titled ‘Tabaccaia di Reschio’ this historic 1940’s building has it all.
The simplistic design of the interior flows from the industrial signage at the front doors all the way down to the finishes and furnishings on the interior. Large floor lamps crafted from old heaters, raw wood textures from found parts, and steel fixtures originating from wine barrels make for some great visual interest that stimulates the tactile senses. Old furniture pieces such as long tobacco sorting tables were incorporated as a bit of history into the new and improved design as well as every bit of intentional design showcased throughout the space.
