based within the historic bomaonti brewery in istanbul, locally based firm autoban has designed the ‘kilimanjaro restaurant and bar’ complementing its warehouse setting. the interiors have been created to boast a contemporary and inviting social environment, while exploring the factory typology of the space itself.

the material choice throughout is a reflection to its industrial background. the restaurant – like a multi-layered interior shell – features a tactile mix of materials in natural finishes that bear traces of craftsmanship. this has effectively softened the severity of the industrial atmosphere and created an establishment unique to its area.

inside, the two main programs – dining area and bar – are arranged in close proximity to each other, almost blending at some points to encourage social interaction and result in an intimate, setting. the original exposed brickwork of the building is contrasted by massive wood paneling that frame the space at parapet level. as well as the furniture and lighting units, the 3D geometric pattern on the wood paneling’s surface have been specially designed by autoban. this wooden shell is installed at a certain distance from the constructive contours of the building, making room to hide away all the technical components.
