Restaurant at the Lake . ...or "Ristorante sul lago" (hope that's correct) since it's an Italian restaurant. At any rate, it's got a terrace out on the water. . If MOCpages still haven't recovered from their image disk problems, please see the photos here on flickr!
Finally I got to finish this restaurant, part of which I already showed quite some time ago, take pictures, and finally upload them...
This is the other side:
You know, there was (maybe still is) a restaurant design – featuring big arched windows and a tower, mostly a corner building – floating around at least on German ebay in various incarnations, many, dare I say, in rather ugly colors. I got one of the prettier ones at a decent price some time ago, modified it to comply with the Café Corner standards and put it on a corner. But I didn't like it there very much, so when I got the idea to have a lakeside restaurant, I took parts of it for this building, mostly the arched windows, the interior, and the idea of a tower.
I'm still not completely satisfied with parts of the wall, but I'll leave it at that for now until I get better ideas...
