Mercatino

Calgary, Alberta

Design Thinking: Mercatino translates from the Italian work for little market. This space is the reincarnation of the former family run and owned Mezza Deli. The client and our team’s goal was to create a bright, airy and welcoming space for customers to enjoy a light lunch fare.

Key features: Mercantino’s space features floor to ceiling windows that the client chose to optimize the natural light while being mindful to not take away from the function and flow of the space. This Mediterranean inspired, market style restaurant features a large open kitchen area that comfortably provides space for chefs. Through collaboration with the client, an engaging space was created that allowed interaction between staff and clientele.
