Text description provided by the architects. The project authors unconventionally conveyed the Georgian atmosphere: instead of the usual ornaments, Pirosmani paintings, and massive furniture, Georgian comfort is achieved with tactile materials, lightness of forms, and accent colors.
A carpeted bar stands out in the entrance hall among the textured plaster and fine tiles that run through the entire project. The rest of the first-floor rooms are laconic in architectural means: it's pretty much only glare of glazed ceramics on the walls, tables, and even on the sofa that brings expressiveness to space. Furniture and light fixtures are either custom-made according to the architects' sketches or purchased at vintage markets.
The staircase that leads to the upper floor is partially finished with a white gypsum board. In some places, old brick appears inside the stairwell, telling the story of the building that used to be a tenement housing in the 19th century.
The second floor seems less utilitarian than the first: concrete and tiles are replaced by wood and mosaic rescued from an abandoned Soviet pioneer camp. Inside the mosaic-clad restroom, the architectural narrative changes dramatically. Modern reflective surfaces with bright red accents of faucets and door handle contrast with the accentuated man-made nature of the rest of the interior. Only the archaic shape of the spouts reminds of an image of dining halls.
On the third floor, there is a family-friendly area with armchairs by the fireplace and a long shared table. In the double-height space, the ceiling with spray-on decorative fireproofing is sporadically replaced by wooden panels. Fine tiles in window openings reflect daylight, bringing softness and tranquility to the room.
