Antica Morphett Street is the new pizzeria located in Adelaide. Its owner and restaurateur, Anthony Crea has based the modernistic Italian design around influences from the family heritage in Napoli, Italy. Ryan Genesis from Genesis Studio drew inspiration from the old gated lane-ways of Napoli which open up into hidden pizzas. This restaurant’s gated façade is truly intriguing – when closed, it gives a glimpse into the hidden courtyard. All of the floors, walls, vaulted ceilings, beach seats have been adorned with over 50,000 hand cut bricks. The brick is the hero, transitioning from the vaulted ceilings, to deconstructed bar surrounds, culminating in fluted walls.
