Situated on top of the Royal Festival Hall at the Southbank Centre The Cube is a nomadic, stateless and cosmopolitan piece of architecture, a pavilion designed to host a small, temporary restaurant.
The project was conceived as a module that can be assembled and
disassembled relatively easily. The structure is suitable for all
climatic conditions, even the most extreme, while always providing
the maximum in living comfort with its refined aesthetics and use
of high-quality materials.
The pavilion's lightness of form is emphasized on the exterior by its white colour and given a sense of movement through the use of an aluminum "skin" that has been laser-cut to create a texture with a geometric design that covers the exterior surface.
The interior of the The Cube has been designed to accommodate
various configurations; the pavilion consists of a large open space
with a visible kitchen and a single large table that can disappear
by raising it to the ceiling, allowing space for a lounge area
after dinner. The employed materials are highly innovative in
terms of technology, eco-sustainability and energy saving, as well
as constantly reusable.
The Cube seats 18 people for lunch or dinner and will house some
of the best star chefs who will perform live for their guests,
offering special menus prepared in the kitchen of the restaurant.
