Pizza 22

Complex geometry and a longstanding history of the grounds were the key starting points for Architecture bureau DA in space planning decision during development of the design for Pizza 22 in Moscow, Russia.

  • area / size 3,767 sqft
  • Year 2018
  • Location Moscow, Russia,
  • Type Restaurant,
  • Pizza 22 is located in the historical center of Moscow, in the premises of a former salt storage. At the same time, with only one third of the premises located on the ground floor, the main part thereof is located below the ground level – in the former salterns. We retained and emphasized the authenticity of the premises having made it a kind of shell for the modern elements locked inside. All pieces of furniture, lamps and decorative components are made according to our sketches.

    The most challenging task was to create colourful and attractive seating in the semi-basement of the premises – at the level of – 6.5 meters. To make our guests feel in these rooms as comfortable as on the ground floor, we housed an open kitchen in the lowest room, arranged lots of tubs with trees, which create the being-at-the-ground-level effect, and also used an installation of a bright art object in the form of red staircase, which became the central element of the room. The ultimate interior is light, minimalistic and not overloaded with details.
