Fucina Launches in Marylebone

Fucina, the latest Italian dining concept from Kurt Zdesar has opened on the corner of Chiltern Street and Paddington Street, Marylebone. MPA acted as the Project Managers and Quantity Surveyors for the build of both the dining areas and the adjacent deli on Paddington Street.

An outstanding feature of the restaurant, designed by Andy Martin Architetcs, are the ‘warped' brick ceilings, formed to be reminiscent of the inside of a traditional pizza oven.

The 110 cover dining space, over two floors, was realised in 16 weeks.
