Customer’s aim was to transform this basement space, abandoning the standard model with canteen food line, and solve acoustical problems in the room. When developing this interior not only space itself was considered, but also logo, menus, graphics, food containers and other decorative elements were combined into a single whole.
Contrasting materials were bined together complementing one another – plywood warmth combined with rough metal, the bar was coated with moss green glazed tiles, grey color palette supplemented with vibrant yellow color. Acoustic ceiling panels were created by special order. The walls decorated with specially designed graphics gives a feel of the youthful carelessness. VDU Profesorius cafe has become a center of attraction not only for students but also for city residents and guests.
