Represents a new concept on the Bucharest market, as it successfully combines sports-bar touches and details with an old-fashion Italian inspired restaurant. The space is divided in 3 main areas, each one with the characteristics and specifics. The friendly and versatile environment was meant to be suited for multiple activities and different types of clients.

The space is split in two by the central island which serves as a bar for the restaurant but also as a reception desk for the gaming area.
A dominant aspect of the restaurant area is the kitchen which is fully plated with handmade turquoise. The whole area breathes transparency and openness and all interior elements are made of stainless steel in order to emphasize the industrial aspect. The flooring from this area is made of a traffic LVT with a stone aspect.
The bowling area has two spectacular metallic ceilings, one is made from painted MDF hexagons and one is made of black metallic blades. In the billiards and bowling area we used a Milliken carpet with a watercolour design which does not have 2 identical elements.
The lighting elements were ordered from England and Spain and the furniture for the most part is custom made in Romania. The most challenging and difficult piece to produce was the bar which was fully produced from Corian with a 39 ml length.
700 Fit Club is the place where technology meets motivation, where trainings have no competition. The concept revolves around the industrial roughness of the building and the energy yellow used to brighten the interior. It is all about this powerful contrast: concrete versus technology.
The concrete stairs lead the way to much comfy places: the pilates area, sauna and the massage corner. These areas of the gym were arranged to give a sense of warmth by using warm lighting.
The floors were custom made and are specific for each working area, for example we installed aerobic floor for better trainings.
And let’s not forget the inviting and cool hospitality zone at front desk of the gym.
The concept for Resto Aperto starts with the idea of transparency in the kitchen, functionally implemented through showcasing the kitchen to the clients.
Aperto (which means open in Italian) emphasizes the food preparing zones and reveals the chef’s secrets. The food is no longer behind closed doors, this transparency being the main idea for the interior design.
The restaurant is located in the Skytower building, Romania’s tallest landmark, which measures 136 meters in height.
Located at the very top, on the 36th floor, this is one of the tallest restaurant venues in Eastern Europe.
Venchi is the Romanian shop for the famous Italian chocolate brand started in 1878. The concept presents the shop in a contemporary light, without losing the magic and beauty of the classic Chocogelatteria.
We designed Social1 inside a classic Socialist Style building. We looked for a design that integrates modern restaurant concepts with the reminiscences of history.
We came up with the concept as a space for socializing and good food that gets inspiration from the classy, uptown, moments of communism. We kept a sober line with dark painted paneling and chairs, and added color details with table toppings and decorations.
The classic Romanian restaurant with an upgrade, as it required more modern touches and detail to be adapted to its audience. We added copper and brass lamps for a glossy finish and darkened the colour palette for a bar-like mood.

Livada Romanian for Orchard, is a restaurant in Cluj, Romania, in an old classic Transylvania house. The concept of the space was to bring indoor the feeling you get outside, in open air.
The challenge: make the interior more impressive than the terrace, a real-life orchard. The concept was that of a Romanian classic restaurant setup in an orchard environment, with 10% of fusion / modern flavor added to it.
The interior designed for the offices of City Grill Group is inspired by their main activity as restaurant owners and managers. Every room takes its spirit from a restaurant brand with details, furniture and decorations adapted to fit the office atmosphere.
We designed TrickShot as a concept that integrates multiple functions: a restaurant with an open kitchen, a bowling area with 8 lanes and billiards and darts area.
We aimed for a modern look that keeps in touch with the lines of the building, but added some retro touches and sports details.
A retro-American inspired smoking lounge designed for Winston in AFI Mall gets its spirit from a gas station along side Route66. We used modern materials to keep in touch with
the brand identity, but the overall look is menat to suggest core-brand values.
