Gleaming sheets of pink corrugated metal contrast with rough plaster walls inside this Moscow restaurant designed by Crosby Studios.The interior of Rare Pastrami Bar, which specialises in meat dishes, brings together the pink hues of sliced pastrami and the industrial finishes of an abattoir.
Located in the Milyutinskiy Pereulok neighbourhood, the 100-square-metre restaurant had previously played host to a French eatery, organised around a large central wall.The studio decided to keep this partition during the redesign, dedicating one side of the space to the kitchen and the other to seating for customers.
This room features corrugated tin wall panels coated in pink lacquer.A set of concrete steps with slate-coloured bench cushions is installed at the rear of the space, creating further seats for diners. Nearby are a pair of cylindrical volumes covered in white tiles, which conceal the bathrooms.
Apart from the new grey terrazzo floors, all other surfaces are left in their previous state.
