Globus the Restaurant | 1919

Globus the Restaurant is located in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

It was designed by 1919 in 2014.


Description by 1919:

Finland’s proximity served as an inspiring factor in the development of this space. The building also, found itself surrounded by a dense belt of firry forest on two of its sides; a fact that added to a sort of natural “scandinavian countryside” feeling of the area.

We used as much of the structural elements of the building in the interior as was sanely possible. Materials was rather succinct and included oil-treated Wallnut and ash, powder-coated steel and exposed concrete.

A doughnut shaped mezzanine defined the double level open space. Intricately shaped but structurally simple gemini stairs provided the communication between the two levels.

A bare minimum of partitioning kept the space on the open side while still providing quite a few secluded corners for those who can be intimidated by such volume, or simply prefer a more intimate setting.
