ZAZIE BISTRO

ZAZIE BISTRO

Budapest I design concept I 2023

Zazie Bistro&Bar, the new restaurant of the MOL Campus, was realized based on the interior design concept of este’r partners. Operating as a café in the morning, a bistro during the day and a casual bar in the evening, at Zazie you can experience a real sense of flow: nature shines through not only on the large glass surfaces but also in the interior, you can relax in small bays in the cozy lounge area and have lunch or dinner in cool restaurant booths. The interior design team has focused on the Danube experience, as they explained there are very few restaurants in Budapest where you can sit near the river during a long lunch or a night out. The MOL Campus also has a unique feature: while the modern high-rise building designed by Foster+Partners of London has a contemporary style, it overlooks the former factory buildings of the Buda Danube district, continuing the bay of Lágymányos. Modern glass surfaces, stunning views and an old industrial quarter in the distance are coupled with beautiful natural features: pampas grasses dancing in the wind, a green riverbank and sunshine.

The team of este’r partners planned a community space in the historical building of Budapest’s city center. The plan evokes the world of classic elegant shops in London or Paris, where a store and a café coexist.

BISTRO FINE

BISTRO FINE

Budapest I design concept I execution I 2016

The impressive old building has been transformed into an elegant hotel in the heart of Budapest. The 5star Bistro Fine is on one hand, an unseparable area of the hotel since it fulfills many neccessary functions, breakfast area, restaurant and lounge bar.  On the other hand, it also serves the public, as a street-opening bar. It is one property, although the design separates the darker, intimate bar from the light, sunlit breakfast area. The long, narrow area is divided by steel shelf structure, and behind every shelf, you find a different space.  The old doors removed from the building during the renovation have been brought into a new life using them as decorative panels attached to the ceiling, made their outline highlighted by LED-lighting. The shelves, the built-in sofas, the counter, some lamps and the bar are custom-made elements, the other furniture pieces, including the comfortable armchairs, diamond shape lamps, tables, chairs and the huge glasses are designer pieces from over the world. The bar design incorporates the historical little yellow underground running Andrássy street. The colours bring out the 100-year old building’s structure.

ZWACK UNICUM VISITOR’S CENTRE AND HERBAL BAR

ZWACK UNICUM VISITOR'S CENTRE AND HERBAL BAR

Budapest I design concept I execution I 2016

UNICUM is one of Hungary’s most popular and ancient herb liqueurs. Our task was to create the “Herbal Bar” for Unicum tasting within the original and old premises of the Unicum factory in the heart of Budapest. The middle of the tasting room is occupied by a movable trolley bar. Through newly created glass walls we ensured that the visitor gets a perfect view of the stored herbs which are the basis of the Unicum liqueur. The lightening system of the bar is custom-made of copper piping to show and reflect the factory background of this space. All these elements strongly support the styling of the central bar. The tables are made of carved full wood and the freely moveable chairs in blue-greenish colour reflect to the factory’s colour scheme. The simple but stylish concrete surface is reminiscence to the use of this room in former days as part of the factory. The decorated colourful glasses on the iron cast shelves are original herb glasses which we found in the old part of the factory.

LA FABBRICA KITCHEN & BAR

LA FABBRICA

Budapest I design planning I 2018

The name, la Fabbrica means factory, pizza manufactory in Italian that refer to the speciality of the restaurant where they can make you the full range of pizzas from over the world.

During the design process we considered the historical characteristics and aptness of the building. We created the main hall transforming the former way of the horse-drawn carriages. We integrated its original elements, the ceiling with the stuccos and the 150 years old mosaic floor into the design concept.  From the main hall there is an access to the restaurant with the open-air kitchen, next to it there is the bar and the winter terrace attached to it.
