the restaurant by lenz/architects is designed to accommodate up to 50 guests who have the opportunity to enjoy french cuisine and beverages. the focal element of the project is the tall curved rack protruding from the wall, which carries the functions of both lighting and decorating the main hall of the restaurant. round pendant lights, upholstered furniture, curved glass and a delicate color palette add brightness and airiness to the interior, while complex the concrete structures, high ceiling and open space utilities provide solidity and grandeur.

the canvas-white walls are decorated with minimalist artwork by american artist david cantu. the restaurant also features a small glass room of favorable temperature for storing wine and flowers. a floating concrete staircase, fenced on both sides with glass and mirror with vertical lighting, leads visitors to a separate area on the second floor with a large family table. since the ceiling in this area is only 2400 mm high, it has been coated with a mirror to visually expand the space.
