One of the largest restaurant holdings in Russia, Ginza Project, give us a task to recreate the atmosphere of a cozy restaurant in the spirit of the Mediterranean, but without beaten interior techniques and clichés.
The restaurant’s Shana layout for 120 people in St. Petersburg is a suite of four rooms. The first one has an open kitchen with seating along the counter, the next is a zone with large tables in the center, then a contact bar counter with small tables along the windows. In the last hall there are cozy sofas with marble tables.
In our opinion, the most important thing is the created atmosphere and rich, saturated colors that delight the eye - green, purple, mustard, deep blue. Despite the large number of mirrors, there is a lot of coarse wood in the space, which adds cosines.
Patinated mirrors visually expand the space. Yellow curtains add sun colors to the interior, and blue - on the contrary, they create a feeling of lightness.
We paid attention to details a lot. We wanted to add comfort and make the atmosphere of the holiday in the interior, and high candles on the tables - a great way to achieve the desired effect. But such candles required a decent candlestick. The necessary finished item could not be found, and then it was decided to make them by craftsmanship
According to our sketches, the brass workshop made three models, and the final favorite variant was chosen, which became the accent that crowns the decor of the tables. Candlesticks have become a symbol of the restaurant, as well as their mini-copies, which play the role of checks in wardrobe.
The paintings in the halls are a series of works dedicated to the architecture of the old district of Jaffa in Tel Aviv, they add rich colors and carry visitors to the restaurant in a sunny country.
