ZERNO COFFEESHOP

60 m²
Minsk, 2021
The design concept of Zerno overcame a change in the process of construction after the demolition works revealed fragments of old stucco moldings and decorated ceiling. This discovery encouraged us to build the interior around these small pieces of living history in the very heart of the city.

The coffee shop has two lighting scenarios: diffused lighting for the ceiling and spot lights for wall mounted artefacts. A composition of light metal trays floating at a distance from the ceiling emphasizes the ceiling décor by providing soft ambience and creating the effect of 'museum lighting'.

A floor-to-ceiling window allowing a maximum of lighting inside is one more advantage of the space. The monochrome interior ensures integrity of space and reduces visual noise without shifting any highlighted details.

Undestroyed raw walls and smooth painted veneer have very close tone colors, which gives artistic expression to the interior and makes it more resonant.

As for the wall exposition of ceramic blocks brought over from Palanga (Lithuania) – it is just another evidence of the museum character of the place.
