Café Très in Montreux, Switzerland by Drozdov & partners Ltd.

A new urban café in Montreux was created as a place where celebration and everyday life go hand in hand. The café fits into the life of local community and becomes a new meeting place. All the attributes of the restaurant are introduced and installed within the preserved historic envelope. The feeling of the temporary installation is further articulated by the chosen materials. Concrete and aged wood are juxtaposed to the white background. The key note is played by the perforated concrete wall that visually unites the entire space of the restaurant and serves a number of functions: wardrobe, bar showcase, kitchen work area, furniture storage facility. The wall also works as a construction kit that allows endless combinations of various objects helping to generate fresh messages to the visitors. As a result, a flexible environment is created that reacts to ever-changing trends and events. Interestingly, although the fitting of the restaurant was entirely produced in Ukraine, with the only exception of Danish j77 chairs, this fact didn’t prevent the sophisticated Swiss audience from accepting the newly-created place with utmost loyalty.
