air | space
air | space, envisioned and brought to life by Birgit Vagani and Riccardo Bardallini, was born out of the love and passion for creating a ‘location destination’ for people to unwind and relax, meet new friends or acquaintances, and get inspired by an environment that speaks to all 5 senses through combining art, culture, design, nature and conscious living with international vegetarian cuisine. A place from which people feel better than before they came, more inspired and engaged in their own lives.
Located at the heart of the emerging South Island Cultural District (SICD), artichoke [ canteen ] in collaboration with toof [ contemporary ] offer 4.500 sq ft. of indoor/outdoor multi-functional space that is both casual and welcoming, like a private living room and garden. It is suitable for quiet gatherings, as well as parties or private functions with flexible capacity to serve up to approximately 150 seated or 300 standing guests.
artichoke [ canteen ]
artichoke [ canteen ]‘s menu and food concept are the results of an inspiring and fruitful collaboration with Cédric Alexandra, former executive chef of LKF Hotel and founder of AAA Hospitality Group in Hong Kong.
Our menu is filled with delicious dishes from every corner of the world, offering food in different combinations with tasty contrasts. We have brought together our favourite vegetarian dishes from far and wide, with a creative twist.
artichoke [ canteen ] is a place to celebrate specially-sourced, organic vegetarian ingredients; a place to re-discover forgotten foods and ways of cooking. We are serious about filtering our water, and using non-preserved products both locally grown from the fresh market by the harbour and from around the world, to offer food that is true to their original flavours and timely for the season. For our non-vegetarian friends, they would still be able to enjoy the catch of the day (fish) and a selection of white meat alternatives.
