Sight. Coffee and dine

FORM as Interior Architects

A new gastronomic spot on St. Petersburg’s map is Sight. Coffee and Dine restaurant, located on Petrogradsky Island in a renovated historical district.

The restaurant comprises two areas: at the entrance guests can enjoy their coffee, take a snack or work on their laptop, while at the back of the room a nice slow lunch can be savoured. Part of the kitchen is visible so that food preparation and cooking can be observed.

The space is a blend of the natural and man-made.  Polina Nenasheva, bureau's architect behind Sight, has subtly illustrated this idea by the meeting of two matters: live plants stretch upwards, to the metal garden sculpture overhanging from the restaurant ceiling. A pink marble bar counter and breccia floor turned into well-loved photographic objects right away.

The original concrete and brick walls of the building have been preserved and completed with marble, metal and semi-opaque plastic. All the materials were carefully chosen and the general palette approaches nude shades.

Shimmering and semi-transparent surfaces create a pleasant feeling of weightlessness, turning Sight into an ideal place for meditative dining.
