Pizzeria il Basilico is the latest food offering in Athlone from the people that gave us the popular Il Collosseo and Lord Bellamys. Specialising in wood fired pizza, they employed Spectrum Signs to create their identity which resulted in a fabulous shopfront in carved timber and authentic vintage wall graphics.
Aldo, our client wanted his new venture to have a ‘rustic’ feel to reflect the uniqueness of his products and explained that the interior fit-out consisted of lots of timber wall panelling and that he would like to have this portrayed outside. From that point, the obvious choice was timber. Rather than simply build a wooden shopfront with some nicely designed raised letters, we agreed that carving the letters directly into the timber would create a better impression of the business. The lettering was filled in with bright gold by hand, some tastefully chosen lighting and some simple frosted window graphics finished it off.
Inside, we added some vintage style wall graphics to both the walls and front of counter. these graphics blend in beautifully with the wood panelled interior. A vintage style menu display was installed above the counter. The interior design creates ambience and points of interest for customers as they wait for their orders.
Pizzeria il Basilico is situated in Northgate Street in Athlone beside Il Collosseo and Lord Bellamy’s where we recently installed a brand new fabricated Dibond shopfront with downlighting. Now it has to be on of the most appealing places in town!
