Briket Market Food Court

Blockstudio used a clear light-gray space to serve as a backdrop to bright color block architectural elements, furniture, lighting, and brand style interplay, bringing the food and visitors into focus at the Briket Market Food Court.

  • area / size 7,319 sqft
  • Year 2019
  • Location Moscow, Russia,
  • From the very start, the idea was to differentiate the Briket Market food court on the fifth floor of the Tsvetnoy department store from other Moscow gastro projects by creating an atmosphere all unto itself.

    A sophisticated observer would recognize the layout of Stockholm that we resorted to for inspiration, with each food corner designed as a stand-alone Swedish house.

    We have thought up different kinds of “briquettes” ranging from uniform street food boxes selling various food to spacious cubes that can be transformed to host different weekend events. We have created a multifunctional space with a well thought-out minimalistic interior design that provides a comfortable setting for eating, working and simply hanging out.

    An important feature of the project is a focus on sustainability both in terms of consumer culture and in terms of environmental protection – the food court staff wear aprons made of recycled denim and sneakers made of recycled plastic bottles. Flower planters are also made of recycled plastic. Most of the food court tenants use reusable ceramic tableware dispensing with plastic straws and placemats and offering discounts to buyers bringing their own containers for food and drinks. The food court has two waste management units for sorting waste equipped with basins for container cleaning.
