Rinascente Cagliari

This new food emporium in Cagliari, on the island of Sardinia in Italy, is part of extensive design-led regeneration of La Rinascente initiated by its CEO, Vittorio Radice.

The 962 sq m scheme sees a complete redesign of the top floor to create a new food hall with two restaurants, a food retail market, and lounge and champagne bars. Bespoke interiors respond to the store’s waterside location and provide stunning views across the city’s harbour and the Mediterranean Sea beyond.

A more informal ground floor café with outdoor seating lines the promenade of the 1920s baroque building on Via Roma, Cagliari’s main shopping street, which is characterised by palazzo buildings with eclectic porticoed façades.

The scheme opened in October 2014.
