St. Petrus. One restaurant, two atmospheres
St. Petrus restaurant is located in Old Town Riga. It occupies the first two floors of a building, each adopting a different business model. The first floor is a gastro bar with an open-plan kitchen and a daily menu. The second floor is a fine dining restaurant. The textured facade and wide windows make the starting point for the interior concept. The connection between the interior and architecture is based on the principle of contrasts. The natural daylight that enters through the windows reinforces the rhythm of lights and shadows, creating a dynamic atmosphere. The main object of the restaurant is the open-plan kitchen, located in the center of the first floor. The shape of it outlines the irregular perimeter of the architecture. The same principle applies to the second floor as well. It was important for us to keep the presence of daylight in the interior. Therefore, the first floor of the restaurant associates with daytime, while the second floor offers more of a relaxed evening mood.
