The design of coffee and snack bar in the university lobby area  combines such design tools as color, material, texture, line and graphic wall elements. High walls and colorless large space asked for an optical center of attraction – the bar. To achieve this we used rich color paint in the back corner of the lobby both on the walls and ceiling and framed with diagonal line optically breaching the rectangular geometry of the space. Hand-painted graphics combined all elements into a single whole. In this dynamic space architectural laconic volume of the bar gained a distinctive character.
