The Georgian restaurant called Georgian, dreamed up and implemented by the designers of Ukrainian architectural studio Globarch Group, was completed this year. Entering the restaurant, you are greeted by a medieval atmosphere, as if you arrived in a Georgian tavern from centuries ago.
This does not mean that the interior lacks modern details, as the designers used both traditional and contemporary elements, but the space still gives the impression of a traditional Georgian restaurant, mainly due to the rustic wood surfaces and dark tones that dominate the place.
The intimate, dim atmosphere is also due to the lack of natural light. The designers were faced with the problem that the windows would only provide limited light and the view was poor. Therefore, they decided to use old-style wood shutters on the windows to enhance the antique character.
The interesting thing about the space is that it used to be a karaoke bar, but the second and third floors were always residential, so it was important to have good soundproofing. In the past, mineral wool, carpeting, and egg cartons were often used. During the renovations, they did not want to get rid of everything, so they kept the egg cartons for the ceiling in the main room.
The flooring is colorful with pomegranate-shaped mosaics alongside old-fashioned parquet floors, and there is a portrait of a Georgian lady at the turn of the stairs, also made of tiny tiles.
