Sight. Coffee and dine

FORM as Interior Architects

A new gastronomic spot on St. Petersburg’s map is Sight. Coffee and Dine restaurant, located on Petrogradsky Island in a renovated historical district.

The restaurant comprises two areas: at the entrance guests can enjoy their coffee, take a snack or work on their laptop, while at the back of the room a nice slow lunch can be savoured. Part of the kitchen is visible so that food preparation and cooking can be observed.

The original concrete and brick walls of the building have been preserved and completed with marble, metal and semi-opaque plastic. All the materials were carefully chosen and the general palette approaches skin tone shades.

The space is a blend of the natural and man-made; and the idea is well illustrated by two matters greeting: live plants stretch upwards, to the metal garden sculpture overhanging from the restaurant ceiling. A pink marble bar counter and breccia floor turned into well-loved photographic objects right away.

Shimmering and semi-transparent surfaces create a pleasant feeling of weightlessness, turning Sight into an ideal place for meditative dining.
