Il Vicino


A converted automotive garage in the popular Washington Park neighborhood of Denver is home to this wood fired pizza restaurant. The program included a 60 seat dining area of plush tufted seating banquets and stained wood slat wall dividers, adding warmth and charm to the existing concrete floor and brick walls. The “back of the house” prep kitchen and second pizza kitchen open up to the dinning room to add to the welcoming quality of the space. The patio, tucked into the front of the building, and bordered by a rod iron fence and abundant greenery, carries through the welcome feel and creates a sense of refuge from the busy street beyond.
