The team behind it
On the ground floor of super-swish mixed-use development The Chilterns, Andy Martin Architecture has created a sweeping, sculptural interior with a curved brick ceiling intended to resemble the inside of a pizza oven.
Windows, handmade in coloured Italian glass with steel screen, stretch from floor to ceiling. Raw materials such as brick, marble, timber and burnt steel dominate the 110-cover restaurant, harking back to the origins of the word Fucina — the Italian for “forge”.
All furniture, ironmongery and lighting is bespoke by the architect, while the floor has been hand-laid using marble chips set into a traditional “terrazzo cement” border, reminiscent of Carlo Scarpa’s Olivetti building in Venice.
On the menu
The food is modern Italian, much like the on-trend tapas menu, which offers small bites of classic dishes. Tear up wood-fired pizzas or tuck into charred seasonal vegetables as you soak up the surroundings.
