Floating restaurant on the Don river

Best Constructed Public Building or Facility

About the project
The studio was to create a new format restaurant on a 30 by 10 meters big pontoon. The restaurant was to become a visual dominant of the Don embankment and set a new stylistic trend there. The three-deck structure had to comply with all the most stringent requirements of the Russian River Register, which made the project highly challenging. The concept is based on the contrast of two cultures – western and eastern, so the restaurant’s rigid, white and straight facades seem to confront the colorful interiors. This makes it attractive to the public walking down the promenade. Although the restaurant accommodates three hundred people, the variety of seating makes each guest feel comfortable.
