The Neolith® "Sea Lounge" in Rome



The Sintered Sound of the Sea

Acquaroof Terrazza Molinari, located on high amidst the rooftops above the excitement and vibrancy of central Rome, Italy, is the latest offering from renowned Italian restaurateurs the Troiani brothers and drinks brand Molinari.

Situated on the sixth floor of contemporary hotel The First Roma Arte, the gastro destination is at once a kitchen, cafeteria and cocktail bar.

Designed by revered architect Antonio Marincola, Acquaroof is an extension of parent restaurant Acquolina, and offers individual tasters of traditional Italian seafood, interpreted in the singular style of head chef Angelo Troiani, known as ‘Assaggia’.

Raising the Bar

Specified throughout the establishment, Neolith® was instrumental in helping to create the ‘sea lounge’ atmosphere of the client’s original vision.

The designers felt the patterns and colours offered by the Sintered Stone brand would perfectly capture the look and feel of a luxury beachfront bar.

A Sintered Stone Symphony

Neolith’s Calacatta Gold Silkwas chosen for the project. Chef Troiani, felt the pattern’s golden veining would subtly communicate the exquisite, delicate nature of his cuisine.

Furthermore, the fine and subtle detailing of the slab evoked the splendour of the Italian capital, its renowned marble statues and world-famous classical monuments. Contextually, Neolith was the perfect fit, seamlessly balancing form and function.

As a result, Calacatta Gold in 6mm and 12mm was used for all the bar tops, backrests and kitchen counters.

Working in Harmony

To provide a point of contrast, Nero Marquina in 6mm was applied to the dining table tops. It playfully references the many black marble sculptures found in Rome’s renowned Capitoline Museums.
