Fabbrica Restaurant, Bergen

The cozy, elevated dining pods at Restaurant Fabbrica in Bergen transports us back to a time of forts and makeshift tree houses. These snug, elevated niches however, are tailored to an adult sensitivity, boasting delicate chandeliers and glass stemware were designed by Tjep Studio, an Amsterdam based architecture and design firm. A large pizza oven is decorated in with a gorgeous Bisazza tile mosaic, while geometric industrial containers hold the oven’s wood. Natural light floods in through an expanse of open windows and arched glass atrium, giving the space a greenhouse-like feel. Overall, Restaurant Fabbrica echoes with a simplistic authenticity, not overly polished, but just right.
