This modern interior is an alternate story for the old Soviet building where the restaurant is located in. We didn't want to create new in old, but highlighted old in new. We renewed blue ceiling beams and let technical communications step to the center. A nonfunctional space column was converted into a big refrigerator that now separates the bar from main zones.
“Perfection is a bad decision to make. It’s not an idyllic-looking restaurant. It’s a restaurant with a character”, says Sergey Makhno. Lightly-scratched tiles, vintage leather, rough wooden surfaces were the things to create the savor of the interior.
The interior design edges on industrial brutalist aesthetics and art of decorative light. The owners allowed us to experiment and we brought together wood, steel, copper and leather. In a slightly wild manner, softening the atmosphere with handmade lamps created by Sergey Makhno.
