Residential complex in Lefortovo

Blank Architects created an architecture for a new residential complex of the developer "Argo" in the Lefortovo district.

Restaurant and Lobby - Hotel
Program: Hotel, Interiors
Status: Ongoing
Scale: 1 000-5 000 sqm

Restaurant and Lobby - Hotel

The main goal was to create a flexible space that would be a lively business lunch spot during the day as well as a cozy dinner destination at night.

A single concept of the exterior and interior is achieved through the rhythm of facades. The rhythm is reflected in the interior of the restaurant and defines the play of shapes, light and shadow. The columns remind us of a pure museum-like space, filled with light and air, open to new things.

Design concept - RESTAURANT

Art space

The interior features straight lines that create volume, a combination of different natural materials –stones with rough texture, slabs of slate, wood, fabrics in warm shades, simple and clean light fixtures. All these create a single spatial composition.

The interior is diluted with light textures of fabric. Semi-frosted glass with a gradient of white to transparent gives us a peak into the kitchen space. Transparent glass partitions divide the room into different zones. Light pastel shades help to create an airy space and become the background for the main interior elements.
It was preferable to use art pieces by the local artists and product designers. The restaurant would serve regional cuisine.

The key interior element is the bar area that smoothly flows into the open kitchen area. The bar is made of a natural stone reminiscent of a dark slate slab. The kitchen is hidden behind a gradient glass that creates some kind of mystery around the process of cooking.

The concept offers an open layout with a possibility to zone the space with lightweight curtain partitions.

The restaurant is surrounded by large panoramic windows overlooking the park and adjacent green areas that during the day offer great views and create a pleasant atmosphere.

Hotel Lobby

The entrance area is an elongated space with a high ceiling and panoramic floor to ceiling windows, that offer great views to the park.
Natural materials were chosen for finishes – textures of concrete, wood, metal and fabrics of natural shades.
The interior is flooded with different details – pendant, floor and wall light fixtures, relief concrete panel, various seating areas and art pieces.
All these pieces merge into a single light, warm and clean space, that welcomes visitors.
