该项目位于I.M. Korovin宽敞明亮的出租公寓内,其前身是莫斯科著名的“Titov and His Sons”连锁面包店。据团队成员在项目开始之前的调查发现,这间房子建于1914年,建筑立面上遗留至今的古董标志“Bakery OTD M.G.K.I.O”也可追溯到上世纪20年代。

The bright unit with high ceilings which was chosen for the project is located in the revenue house of I. M. Korovin and was historically preceded by a bakery. Before embarking on the project, we scrutinized the history of the house and its district. The house was built in 1914, and the bakery appeared straight after, being a part of quite an enormous Moscovian chain of bakeries ‘Titov and His Sons’. The building façade still retains an antique sign ‘Bakery OTD M.G.K.I.O’ which supposedly harks back to the 1920s.

在收到客户希望保护该地历史痕迹以及重构俄罗斯革命前风格的面包房等要求后,项目团队试图以一种特殊、精细的方式来进行改造工作——即保留和恢复在杂货店曾经的装饰材料层下发现的东西。设计团队认为,在不刻意追求历史主义的前提下,传达空间的独特性从概念上来讲至关重要。他们的主要任务是通过对几何纯粹性、人工制品简洁性的强调来赋予空间通透性。团队成员在拆装过程中发现了古老的瓷砖,并对其进行了精心的清洁和修复。同样的方法也被运用在对窗户边框的处理中。此外,瓷砖还被部分保留在孔罩中。店主希望客人们能感受到空间中重新焕发出的生机,体验它的不完美、真实性和独特性。

Thus, we had a historical unit and a technical task from a customer to recreate the pre-revolutionary atmosphere of a bakery and to sustain the historical significance of the place. We tried to work with exceptional delicacy- by keeping and restoring what has been found under the layers of finishing material left after the grocery store. We consider it to be conceptually crucial to convey the uniqueness of the space, without striving for deliberate historicism. Our primary task was to imbue the unit with airiness through geometrical purity and laconic emphasis on the artifacts.During the dismantlement process, we found the original encaustic tile, which was meticulously cleaned and restored. The same was done to the window trimmers. Moreover, the tile was partly preserved in the escutcheons. We would like our guests to feel the space coming back to life, experience its idiosyncratic imperfections, its authenticity, and its distinctive character.

将这些元素与特定的文化背景结合起来十分关键,收银台的手工彩瓦也正是这一结合的体现。团队还通过在其中一个店放置糕点架来致敬Titov面包店。被鲜花覆盖的中央窗户代表着麦田,是面包房最美的一角。带纹理的椅子唤起了人们的怀旧之情。大门入口处的霓虹灯和讨论后得以保留的明亮金属灯等元素与店内复古的氛围形成了对比。

We found it vital to integrate the elements with certain cultural reference. And this gave birth to the idea of chameleon hand-made encaustic tile at the cash desk. We also paid homage to the old Titov’s bakeries by placing the pastry rack in one of the storefronts. The central window, smothered with flowers, represents the wheat field and is the most photogenic spot of the bakery. The chairs along with textured walls evoke nostalgia. The neon lighting of the technical door portal looks ironic against this antique backdrop, as well as the bright metal lamp we decided to keep after the first draft. These elements stand in contrast to the vintage atmosphere.

团队还将一幅收纳在国家历史博物馆中、可追溯到1917年的不知名儿童画像通过全息图像技术进行重现,并把它挂在餐厅的长椅上方。另一个设计亮点是一张大型光滑的环氧树脂桌面。包括荞麦花在内的药草和花卉,象征性地融合在桌面上,呼应了面包房的名字(“grechka”翻译成荞麦)。这种大桌子的想法源于俄罗斯古老的传统,即在舒适的家庭聚会上,品尝着现煮的茶和香酥的糕点。

A child’s drawing of an unnamed painter which dates back to 1917 was found in the State Historical Museum archives. We utilized the picture to create a holographic image with the stereo-vario technology and placed it above one of the banquettes. Another design highlight is a massive glossy table with an epoxy top.  Herbs and flowers, including buckwheat inflorescence, are symbolically fused into the top and echo the name of the bakery (‘grechka’ translates buckwheat).  The idea of a large table stems from an old Russian tradition of cozy family gatherings with freshly brewed tea and fragrant pastry.
