Having received the task to design a restaurant in August 2016, the answers to the questions «what?» and where?» They were absolutely clear, and the questions «who?» And How?» solved until the very opening. Work was to make full reconstruction of 3-storeyed building of the 19th century, changing the facades, the building’s structure, complete replacement of engineering, additional staircases. Certainly the building itself, which is on the canvas of the architectural history of the Patriarchs, prompted, and sometimes dictated directions for solving a multitude of tasks. We could only realize them. Style: Boho, functional.

Materials and color are dominant in the interior: stone, copper, Brazilian granite, emerald color. Furniture: chairs are brought from Italy and Belgium, sofas are made in Moscow according to our sketches. Various scenarios of light dictated a variety of chandeliers and lamps. The chandelier of 70s of the last century with Flea market Porte Clignancourt immediately evokes a memory of the Paris cold on the day when we, desperately bargaining, did not even imagine how difficult it would be to deliver it entirely. French lamps found their place in the niches of the second floor. As a reminder of the pop art of the 60s — a mirror object on the first floor. The wine cabinet just showed itself on the wall at the stair case and went to the ceiling of the building. And air, air, air — so beloved by us in the short summer: sliding facade windows.
