Bucharest-based studio Yellow Office completed the design and development of a high quality restaurant and events venue near Preajba lake in Craiova, Romania. The place is filled with a vibrant personality and offers beautiful surrounding views. According to the architects, the design is based on a contemporary eclectic-industrial style. On this two storeys building the main theme was to create a major “object and material contrast”. Warm materials such as wood and recovered brick are highlighted by white metal and ceramics. Glossy elements are also contrasted by rough natural wood flooring.

Retro light bulbs were employed in order to create an inviting ambiance throughout. One other important characteristic is the disposing of the two bars, one on each floor. The furniture features classical design Thonet chairs, and comfortable sofas-both of which have two finishes, textile and leather enclosed with brushed wood. The major attraction of the place is the visual connection between the floors and the 2-meter-diameter chandelier.
