“Movimentocentrale” is a bike café dedicated to cyclists and fans of delicious Sicilian cakes and coffee. The cafe is located in the old center of Syracuse, designed entirely by using bicycle parts and components made of wood, stone and metal.
The love for cycling can be seen in every part of “Movimentocentrale”. The walls are lined with interesting wallpaper that have various structures and parts of bicycles. A driving force in the project by architectural studio “External Reference” was the construction entirely through DIY projects and architects managed to create economical but nice and warm space dominated by the idea of cycling. The interior of the cafe is subtly divided into two zones, a formal part with tables and chairs and the laid-back part with wooden elements that create a more informal atmosphere.
