Cafe in the centre of Moscow with an Australian atmosphere. We created a feeling of freshness, breeze, ocean, sand and surf. For this, calm sand shades and the deep colour of the ocean are used. In the centre of the cafe, there is a large curved table, which may resemble unknown creatures from the bottom of the ocean or may resemble a surf wave.

The bathroom area is highlighted in dark colour and the walls and ceiling are like a dark holes at the bottom of the water. This decision is due to the fact that the space for the bathroom is very small and in a dark colour it is more comfortable for people to collide with other people on the way to the toilet.

Functionally, the layout of the furniture is planned so that a person from the street will see fresh pastries and can come in to take them with him on a diagonal rack without getting into the main space. At the same time, a diagonal passage connects the pre-cooking area and the bathroom.
