Da Bureau Transforms Historic Reception Hall in Moscow into a Modern Restaurant

How does a restaurant equally passionate about coffee and cocktails exist within a locale that functions as hub for creatives, complete with a photo studio and event venue? One of St. Petersburg’s foremost contemporary design firms, Da Bureau, envisioned the answer in remodeling a historic Moscow reception hall into The Beloque Restaurant, located in the Trekhgornaya Manufaktura urban development. To create a dining destination with a touch of drama, the team leveraged the high ceilings, original structural elements, and rustic textures of the space. 

Artful installations and textural furnishings balance the industrial materials throughout, such as wood, concrete, stainless steel, and micro-cement. And a white terrazzo floor, complete with brass inserts, adds an elegant touch, warmed by ornate rugs with rich hues.  With a variety of greenery punctuating the transitional areas and a light-catching mobile suspended in the main dining room, The Beloque Restaurant is sure to keep diners coming back morning, noon, and night.
