| Protagonist Bar / Balbec Bureau
Protagonist is a café-bar located in a historical part of Kharkiv, Ukraine. It is a hangout place for the creative and imaginative people, to share ideas and express themselves. Every guest here is a ‘protagonist’ – a leading character of their storylines, and an advocate of the creative ideas.
It is a loft with concrete pillars that we stripped of old finishes to reveal the beauty of the ceilings textures and intricate backside prints of previously removed floor tiles. These were the key elements we wanted to preserve, thus emphasizing the original architectural design of the building.
我们的任务之一是将空间划分为功能区和流程。因此，我们将房间的后面指定为技术区，而沿着全景窗户的中央部分成为主要的用餐区。房间中央放置了一张可容纳多人的公共桌子，桌子左侧放置了一个全尺寸的吧台。我们将 DJ 放在桌子的右侧，而柔软的座椅——扶手椅和沙发——以及两人的小桌子放在 DJ 后面，还有全景窗户。除公用桌外，大部分家具元素均由我们的家具品牌 propro 设计和生产。
One of our tasks was to divide the space into functional zones and process flows. Thus, we designated the back of the room as a technological zone, while the central part along panoramic windows became the main dining area. A communal table that can accommodate large groups was placed in the middle of the room, and a full-size bar was positioned to the left of the table.We stationed the DJ to the right side of the table, while soft seating –armchairs and sofas, - together with small tables for two were placed behind the DJ, along with panoramic windows. With exception of the communal table, most of the furniture elements were designed and produced by our furniture brand propro. The owners of the establishment, being true connoisseurs of quality sound, have placed a great emphasis on sonic equipment.
该机构的所有者是真正的优质声音鉴赏家，他们非常重视声波设备。他们选择了 Void Acoustics，这是一家为安装和现场扩声市场提供音频系统的领先制造商。Void 不仅可以播放背景音乐，还可以与受邀的 DJ 一起举办派对。复古设计的时尚主题可以追溯到整个房间。它可以在真正的钢化玻璃墙板上看到，我们在拆除旧建筑时打捞了这些墙板。它也在 DJ 的控制面板中，我们通过对老式放射线图进行现代化改造而创建。
They chose Void Acoustics, a leading manufacturer of the audio systems for the installed and live sound markets. Void makes it possible to not only play background music, and also to host parties with invited DJs.The hip theme of vintage design can be traced throughout the room. It can be seen in authentic wall panels of tempered glass, that we salvaged during the deconstruction of an old building. It is also in the DJs control panel that we created by modernizing a vintage radiogram.
An aged mirror on the back wall creates an effect of the visual infinity, multiplying objects and adding perspectives. The DJ console is a modernized Soviet-era radiogram that we bought on a classified’s website. We cut the radiogram into two and added the missing piece made of modern materials. Electric leads were threaded through the radiogram’s leg, and the music control unit was hidden inside the radiogram.One of the focal points of the room is a light fixture suspended over the communal table. It is lifted to the ceiling during big parties, while the table is wheeled away to the glass wall. The shape of the light fixture is quite complex by no accident: it contains a special Protagonist phrase – this city needs a leading character, represented by a sound wave that was superimposed onto the oval shape by the project team.
厕所中的金属框架采用组织者的风格设计 - 有序地容纳和隐藏所有必要的配件。与空间的总体主题相呼应，洗手间的内部采用了剥落的瓷砖设计。立面简单而朴实。与内部协调，深色地基采用铝复合板完成。在主入口处，我们创造了一个开放的露台，这也是一个吸引街道交通的长座位。
Metal frame in the lavatories was designed in the style of an organizer – to orderly hold and conceal all the necessary accessories. In tune with the general theme of the space, the interior of the lavatories features a peeling tile design. The facade is simple and unpretentious. In tune with the interior, dark foundation is finished with aluminum composite panels. By the main entrance, we created an open terrace that is also a long seating place that attracts street traffic.
The unique floor lamp is connected with white walls, chairs and cabinets. The white space is more open. The carpet is a bold statement and increases interest. Modern white and gray living and dining areas, lamps provide functional lighting and separation. In the kitchen area, a row of lights focus on the cabinet display, and modern chandeliers above the dining table are a good way to mark the compact but open space dining area. The windows and door frames are matched with the color accent of the open floor, the modern style chairs are perfectly matched with the bold carpets, and the long arm living room lights separate the rest area from the dining room. The unique finish pulls the line of sight up to the ceiling, making the combination of living room and dining room more spacious. In the bright living room, patterned carpets and pillows add color to the neutral tone of the space.
Cabinets become open shelves, and curtains act as room partitions. In the compact apartment layout, the kitchen device is used to store electrical appliances - a way to maximize space. Pillows and indoor plants give off a green smell, adding freshness. The living area and dining area are combined, and the separation is realized through wall decoration and natural greening next to the sofa. Sliding wall panels are drawn to provide privacy for the seating area. The restaurant is located on the unique tile floor of the kitchen, and the apartment adopts a smooth relaxation and positioning layout to create a sense of calm.
