Alpine-style country restaurant “Skanste” in the suburbs of Madona, Latvia.
The main aim of this project was to create a cozy and hospitable place for a country rest. Restaurant “Skanste” was designed as part of a large complex with hotel rooms and a SPA area. It is located among the picturesque Latvian nature.
Natural textures of stone, wood and metal mostly dominate in the interior with a reference to authentic Alpine restaurants. Soft warm lighting with plenty of backlighting creates pretty relaxing atmosphere. The texture of wall with a relief plaster surface pleasantly catches the gliding light.
A large fireplace takes a significant place in the concept of the restaurant. It is decorated with “wild” crushed stone and the country complex owner’s family coat of arms. There is a group of upholstered furniture in the lounge style near the fireplace. Moreover, there is a small bar that hides the passage to the wine cellar. Much attention was paid to the ceiling in the design. The complex multi-level structure of wooden beams and stylized lamps made of branches emphasize the rustic character of the restaurant.
The “Skanste” project was created for people who want to relax after the hustle and bustle of the big city. This is a traditional story about harmonical existence of nature elements in the inner space.
