Buha|i|rest is the latest gastronomic hot spot located in a historical part of Budapest,Hungary. It advertises itself as a stylish concept bar and a launge for luxury dining. During the 20th century the building had been home textile manufacture. The 1148-square-foot (350-square-metre) speakeasy is divided into a bar and a more intimate lounge space.


The choice of terracotta color as the main one was dictated by the desire to preserve the balance between the old factory exterior made of red brick and the modern interter. It looks like an attempt to soften the transition from one era to another, to make it smoother First part of this case are: The 164-square-foot (50-square-metre) speakeasy is divided into a coffee-bar.


“The client wanted an ultra modern space juxtaposed with a vintage chairs Pierre Jeanneret, which he left from the last project” “With dramatic feelings, instagram views and a friendly atmosphere.” The bar is divided into several zones with different levels of comfort during landing. Most of the concrete arches and ceiling have been left in their found state.


The floor tiles are reclaimed and materials are sustainably sourced. Clay-coloured leather cushions have been used to dress the bench seats. Throughout the restaurant, used the materials hand-glazed tiles, terracotta decorative plaster and marble for wall and bar. Menus and coasters are made of u p-cycled paper and plastic. The surprise in this space are the huge sculpture of KAWS "Small Lie". Which is a great find for instagram photos. Modular sculpture in the sofa area is handmade by local craftsmen inspired by Alexander Calder.
