Tehnoezh Showroom 2.0

First of all, we were inspired by the lifestyle of the Tehnoezh team: love for travel, quality music and bright moments of life! In the showroom you can find not only the coolest and new gadgets, but also a bunch of vinyl records, which were carefully selected in Kultura Zvuka.

The interior of Showroom 2.0 turned out to be quite unusual for retail, and more like a city cafe or lobby of a fashion hostel in the center of Europe. But this is what we wanted to achieve: to break the stereotype and open something new for this segment of business together with Tehnoezh.

Palladium Cinema

In the new Palladium Cinema, we implemented everything that we had in mind. The emphasis of the new halls is wall panels with hidden lighting. Niches with built-in sofas and console tables appeared in the bar area. White corridor with linear LED backlighting has become the most popular place for photographs. And most importantly – along with the panoramic windows there is now a viewing area from which a stunning view of the city center opens

Dental Clinic WHITE

So, on the basis of that idea, we created a light interior design. Every surface is coloured in different variations of matt and glossy white colour. We added the effect of spectral dispersion as an emphasis to the calm atmosphere: this way, we’ve got panels, doors, and glass screens, covered in a special membrane called a chameleon. We put multicolour LED backlighting on the ceiling

To plan a layout of all rooms properly, we figured out how X-ray, sanitizer, drill for all-ceramic crowns and other specialised tools work. It was challenging and very interesting. The clinic includes three dental cabinets, sterilisation room, in-house lab and X-ray cabinet. It also has a photo zone, where patients could make a shining smile selfie

We designed the majority of modular furniture – like a reception desk, wall panels, drawers and tables – in a cut form, to remind of a gemstone

Also, we used glass, stainless steel sheets, and plastic in the design, to add the vibe of technology and modernity to the picture. Below, we lay poured polymer flooring, suitable for the environment of medical facilities requiring high hygiene and resilience

The design of the WHITE clinic is one of the most interesting projects for our studio both because of the concept and of the process we’ve been engaged in

Gorcafe 1654

After a few years, a small space beside 1654 was left unoccupied. Dmitriy Zaporozhec approached us to create a new restaurant with an open baking space, contact bar, and more nightly ambience. The new place was named ZuZu.
Before we started working with the area, it has been rented to a clothing store and all walls and ceilings were covered with plasterboard. As it usually happens, under the layer of drywall we’ve found brick walls and the original fretwork on the ceiling. We promptly decided to leave it all be. Interior design started assembling.

With Vova Toshaev and First Line team we planed out the work zones like kitchen, bar, and open baking space. To ensure everything functions properly and the restaurant’s guests are comfortable, we, Alexandr Tsyganov, and the engineering group developed a hidden ventilation system, floor heating, and lots of other small tech details.
Developing the design with Vitalyi Sobchenko, we’ve tried to convey the diversity of styles and materials. We combined the loft-style brick walls, concrete, metallic framework with classic: fretwork on the ceiling, old oak tables, wooden panels and platbands. Alexey Lyah made amazing oak tables, filled with epoxy. They are so beautiful it’s hard to take your eyes from them.

The project has been developing for almost a year. During this time, we gained a profound understanding of how restaurant work is built and realized that the nice interior and comfortable chairs are not enough for it to be truly good – and we’ve committed ourselves to make it so. The restaurant is a complex mechanism, and designers should think through every small thing that people within it, both employees and guests, will interact with. Smooth teamwork is essential, – and we became a part of an amazing team working with ZuZu interior design.

In 2019, Dima Zaporozhets and his team decided to merge the city cafe 1654 and ZuZu restaurant. They’ve come up with a laconic name: Gorcafe 1654. Now, it’s a cafe with shared menu and bar – but the difference in the two halls’ atmospheres remains.

We’re glad we took part in creating such a cool place! It’s an iconic project both for our studio and for Kharkiv

Villa Space

Villa Space on Sri-Lanka is a small hotel with few rooms and common lounge zone, terraces, swimming pool, and a hall for yoga classes. Also, the place has a building for personnel with a kitchen, laundry room, and additional guest rooms. But the main thing is, of course, the territory, the view on the ocean! Villa is in the heights, and it’s hard to reach there even on a moped. After the climb, though, you realize it worthed it! From the terraces guests can see the ocean through palm trees, even hear the waves; a lot of trees are around: mango, tamarinds, date palms – all of it is drowning in green. We tried to make a design that will help guests relax in this atmosphere: absolute freedom, openness, natural materials are dominant in floor plans – as well as in every detail of the villa.

Working on the architectural project, we collaborated with Gennadiy Lieshchuck, and that was an unforgettable experience! We started with schematics. Thought through the function of the buildings, defined the area where they will be situated, modelled relief formations accordingly with data and layout of Shi Lankan geodesists. Then, we started working with the form of the building. We chose the building with colonnades enclosing the building’s perimeter and a tile hip-roof with a large overhang that protects from the sun and rain. At the same time, we created interior designs and floor plans with Dmitriy Zaporozhets, worked through kitchen configurations with Vova Tashev; right now, that kitchen is the source of wonderful breakfasts (and not only them) for Villa’s guests.

The project has lots of interest details and solutions worth telling about. For instance, shower rooms under the open sky, teak flooring, high ceiling in the living room and long stairways, like in Buddhist temples, etc. – we can talk about them for hours. But it’s impossible to convey the sheer joy and vibes of this place in text: you should be there, relaxing, calming your mind with a starlit sky and sunsets and animals living around. Then you should exchange the tickets to come back home later: maybe next week; maybe next month.

This project is one of the most spontaneous, unique and beautiful things we have an honour to add in our portfolio. It was an amazing experience, lots of new people, and falling in love with Sri-Lanka and its culture.


To emphasize the scale of the space, the inner window slopes were lined with wooden panels. And the shelves of the bar were made to the ceiling and framed by a classic wooden portal. As an accent, we have chosen a blue-green color for the bar counter, window sill and one of the walls.

Usually we try to hide all the ventilation, but here we did not lower the ceiling, so we had to mount the communications in an open way. And we came up with a construction of a metal pipe that frames the ventilation and air conditioners, while serving as a fixture for lamps and a multimedia system. Pipes and all open communications were painted black, and the ceiling was left white, giving a graphic design.

Furniture for the restaurant was made in Ukraine according to our sketches. We also developed lighting fixtures for this project, which were made by the guys from the Garage Hub. And Dmytro Zaporozhets complemented the interior with an unusual decor and a collection of books, which was placed on the shelves opposite the entrance to the restaurant.
A super cool feature of the bar is a huge graffiti by the famous Kharkiv artist Hamlet Zinkovsky.

JZL is a unique place with everything: the aroma of pastries and coffee, simple and delicious food and cocktails. Despite the closely located places and relatively small area, this is a legendary place for Kiev and everyone just has to visit here!
