KoDA Integrates NYC’s Sidewalk Scaffolding Concept into New Apizza Brooklyn Restaurant in Miami

unknown-10

The industrial New York City look was the inspiration for KoDA’s design of Apizza Brooklyn’s newest Miami location. The goal was to make the space innovative, creative and family friendly with more seating, brick, concrete, wood, and metal details.

KoDA recently completed the design of the new, 3,033 square foot Apizza Brooklyn restaurant, which just opened in Miami’s Coral Gables neighborhood. The space features an 80-person dining area, pizza bar, wine bar and wine cellar.

The interiors of the space were inspired by the scaffoldings seen throughout the ever-evolving New York City streets. This industrial element made usually of wooden planks and metal poles has become synonymous with the architectural experience of the city. KoDA implemented repurposed scaffolding throughout the space and turned it into a functional, yet alluring design detail for displaying carefully curated ingredients used in the kitchen and for providing additional storage space.
