LEFTdesign completed Tunguska as a restaurant with local inspiration and materials, while honoring the Siberian cuisine and environment in Krasnoyarsk.

  • Year 2020
  • Location Krasnoyarsk, Russia,
  • Type Restaurant,
  • The concept of the new restaurant “Berrywood Family” was to be closely connected to Siberia. The idea was to offer new Siberian cuisine, but based on local products and culinary technology. One of the main tasks was to have an open kitchen with a traditional Russian stove. Therefore, the aim of this project was to create an interior with a special atmosphere, within which we could strive to reflect the beauty and strength of the Siberian natural habitat.

    We decided to create an atmosphere of an endless Siberian taiga, whilst also honoring our rivers – Enisey, Tunguska and many others that provide people regional products, such as local fish and meat, used in everyday life in the northern parts of Siberia and also feature in the menu of “TUNGUSKA”. The goal was to create this ambience without using old -fashioned traditional Russian decoration often which are often exploited in similar projects, whilst still ensuring guests feel the true spirit of Siberia.

    The majority of the materials used in this project are local sourced. The floor is a form of terrazzo created from Enisey pebbles; the bar and kitchen counters are made from the locally mined solid granite. The partitions and walls are completely natural tree trunks, sourced from the nearby forests. All these elements combine to create a unique, calm and cozy atmosphere that gives a real sense of luxury.
