As is known, Europeans have always loved to explore the culture of exotic countries.
Traditions of architecture, crafts, and colour schemes have had a huge impact on creative
people for a long time. These gave rise to the emerging of colonial architecture and
interiors in the homeland, as well as the increase in trend reversal - the emergence of the cultural object directly in distant lands. For example, brightly coloured oases with light
motifs of France or Belgium can be guessed, and local cultural features are respected.


The proximity of fashion boutique SPAZIO was essential in creating the interior of
Morocco. White minimalist, sterile interior fuses with a warm amber room designed by
loft buro. The Fashion design would have to get a logical line in the interior; hence Yves
Saint Laurent and his beautiful villa in Morocco happened to be a source of inspiration.


Hand-crafted tiles and glass bricks with warm illumination create the portal of the
entrance to the mysterious city; as a reminder of the magnificent cities along the ocean
shore, on the "edge of the earth".


The natural, nude colour and terracotta`s material bear the memory of the touch of the
master`s hands and dominates the interior, covering floors, walls, and even ceilings.
Pergolas (sun protection structures) on the ceiling give an impression of being in the
villa. Chandeliers with plants embody the tradition of terracing greenery, and
illumination - the eternal sun.


The walls with large mirrors symbolize the colour of the Atlantic Ocean, which washes
the sandy shores. Glass bricks were created especially for this project and integrated
into real brickwork. Amber light pouring through them reminds the sun`s rays.


The combination of terracotta with many shades of Azur blue and deep blue, some brass
as a symbol of gold, are the main range of the interior. As for the bar`s stand, the
enlarged relief element in glazed ceramics was created using the traditional ornaments.


The glossy structural surface magnetically draws attention to itself and is the main focus
of the space. The Eastern classic lamp lines were used in the shelves` design on both
walls of the bar area. The brass elements resemble garlands of lanterns strung on the
axle.


Ceramic countertops, chairs, sofas are made in the style of handmade artisans. Natural
and relict wood, ropes, carpets with deep shades, mild earth colour of all materials
emphasize the aesthetics of a country house.


Furthermore, Inga Makarova`s paintings depicting exotic animals, aboriginal women
promote the impression of an artist`s workshop or a collector`s villa.
Another Ukrainian master created a sign based on the cultural symbols of the African
kingdom, which became the establishment`s logo.


Once and again, every project the loft buro involves various Ukrainian artists to create
a set of objects and works of art.
