Located in the historic city center, the coffee-bar ‘Crveni Petao’ represents a meeting point and a place to enjoy everyday rituals. Its location in a pedestrian zone allows participation in the city rhythm. The coffee-bar itself has been founded in the 50’s of the last century.



From the beginning of the design process, we stuck to the concept of preservation of the recognizable spirit of the place, while removing all the imperfections of the old space and creating a new visual identity. The biggest challenge was the functional organization, with many restrictions in terms of its dimensions.



Now, the final solution consists of two levels. The bar is at ground level, while restrooms and utility rooms are at the level beneath. Carefully chosen pieces of furniture and lighting contribute to a specific atmosphere. A combination of materials and pastel tones gives a whole space a dose of elegance and luxury. The idea was to make symbiosis of traditional spirit and modern interpretation in one place.



What makes this project one-of-a-kind?

The right balance between the materials used, colours, details and accents in a limited space makes this project one-of-a-kind.
