Text description provided by the architects. Restaurant “Momo Grill” is located in an old building in the centre of Klaipeda. The idea of its interior was to create a modern, democratic and non-binding atmosphere. For this reason an opening to the kitchen was formed in the area through which, when the restaurant is open, you can see kitchen staff working. Wall tiles of the kitchen are as though continued on the walls of the restaurant hall. Together with industrial style chandeliers and wall lamps, scandinavian style chairs and shelves full of various accessories and home flowers they create a different image of a restaurant than usual. It’s minimal, yet decorative.
Plywood items with rough sanded surface make the interior more natural. Several colours are matched in the interior. Yet brownish gray shade of wood items, laminated floor and painted walls is dominant. Big areas of walls with white glazed tiles create a balance. Black colour chairs, table legs and menu blackboard stand out in this colour composition. Another group of colours – tile decorations and grey chandeliers. Former white plastic window frames were as well repainted in grey. Below windows tiled window sills were designed. The oneness of restaurant floor is that no plinths were used. They were replaced with the same white glazed tiles. A logo and outdoor advertising was also designed for the object.
