In the project proposals for the development of the park in the 1940s - 1950s. this fragment was supposed to be included in the general composition of the park (a system of park paths, observation platforms, a landscaping device, the inclusion of recreational facilities: a boat station, arbors, beach development along the Malaya Nevka shore). In accordance with the projects of the 1940s-1950s, the park composition in the area under consideration was only partially realized. The architectural solution of the restaurant, executed in the style of "landscape architecture", develops the idea of ​​the author of the project of Primorskiy Victory Park A.S. Nikolsky to create park pavilions in the form of an "inhabited landscape".

The folded shape of the green roof, the overhangs and ledges from the ground make it possible to "merge" the building with the surrounding landscape, to achieve the integration of the form into the surrounding park environment. There is a terrace on the roof of the restaurant.

The high level of groundwater represented a great difficulty in the construction. The base of the building is a monolithic reinforced concrete foundation plate. Bearing structure is a prefabricated metal frame. Fencing structures are made of structural glazing using the Reyaers aluminum profile. The roof - operated, is solved in the form of a folded construction of complex shape, which is a corrugated profile laid on metal ferms. On the corrugated board a pie of the "green roof" is arranged. When covering parapets, firewalls and wide cornices of the roof of the restaurant, titanium-zinc panels of Rheinzink were used.
