One of Poznan's most iconic addresses comes back into the spotlight in all its old-times beguiling glory! The landmarked building of River Baths has recently become a home for the OT.WARTA restaurant, whose interior reflects the investor’s passion and vision translated into design language by designer.

The overall colour palette and textures chosen for this particular space correspond with the flow of the Warta river running just outside the windows. The choice of accessories and design details, on the other hand, is a modern and stylish bow towards the building’s pre-war genius loci

The restaurant’s interior design rests on surprisingly raw materials: industrial stained concrete flooring and fiber-cement roofing sheets (commonly known as eco-waves). Their washed-out greyness is broken by natural wood together with built-in furniture and curtains in subdued green.

The most essential and, simultaneously, most noticeable feature of the restaurant is a cylindrical bar in front of the entrance, finished with golden details and a fluted siding wall in contrasting black. The bar canopy, made of perforated metal sheet, is echoed as circular ceiling lamps.

The mode:lina studio is made up of a team of talented young Polish designers who share the same approach to architecture as a tool for the constant exploration of new forms and functions, design thinking fuelled by going beyond the beaten track, inspired by contradictions and contrasts, and finally designing spaces of experience that simply make people’s lives better.

It is part of the team’s working logic to be proactive in driving projects, to be independent in finding solutions and to have genuine fun in their work.
