Amsterdam, 13rd January 2015 – ESTIDA interior design & concept development announces the opening of bistro ‘Bon Vivant’ in Bennebroek November 2014. ESTIDA created a brand new concept in the former restaurant Les Jumeaux.
The extensive refurbishment was initiated by the Dutch couple Hennie and Helga Van Ommen, upon their return to The Netherlands after having lived in France for 16 years. Wanting to start a new hospitality concept with a modern look and feel, they were looking for a proper location to start their business in. Hennie van Ommen came in touch with ESTIDA after having searched the Internet for a suitable interior design company. ‘We were looking for a company that was able to create something different and out of the ordinary. The ESTIDA website convinced us that we had found the right people to work with’, says Hennie.
The building now includes a bar next to the entrance, a wine bar in the middle of the premises and a restaurant with a lounge area in the back. In order to facilitate these three features, ESTIDA made some adjustments in the building to transform the former restaurant into a different kind of bar. By removing a wall, an open kitchen was created which provides more intimacy between the guests and the kitchen staff. This also offers a better view to the restaurant in the back of the building, which used to be secluded from the rest.
A wine bar was created between the entrance and the restaurant, which offers both high tables with stools and lower seats. Eye catcher in the wine bar is the bar front, which is covered with old wine crates.
In the restaurant, the steel arches across the ceiling produce a typical French style, which is complemented by the steel framed lamps. A large wooden table that consists of two separate massive parts is situated below the sliding roof made of glass. Between the wooden table parts, olive trees grow. During the winter the fireplace can be lit in the restaurant lounge area and during the summer a patio is created, by opening the roof.
