Two-storeyed dining section was inspired by two natural phenomenas:  tornado and  rain. The space features  six  tornado shape balconies which create one dynamical upper zone with five dining cells. Restaurant walls lined with wooden slats create contrast balconies smooth surface. Ceiling lamps imitate rain drops falling from the sky so complete atmosphere is very natural and ensures comfort. Spaces of the restaurant are calming  due to the natural tones which extend throughout the restaurant : beige, ochre, garnet, brown.

The bar itself is made of wooden sticks stuck together among themselves. This wall decoration creates feeling of bird’s nest where you can feel warm and cosy. Armchair design remind us coniferous cones and forest. The whole place is made for relax and changing people’s mind to meditative spirit.
