The Restobar “Gaisrinė” is located in the premises where several restaurants had been operating before, so together with the customers it was decided to preserve certain interior details. That is a wood plank ceiling finish and already installed bathrooms. The new interior solutions are based on the raw style which is characteristic of smokehouse type restaurants. It is characterized by aged, rough and natural surfaces, black and grey shades, and concrete. Following this idea, textured oak boards of different colours, old-like and blackened concrete covering of floor and bar countertop, orange leather chairs and sofas, as well as black painted metal structures and grey walls have been used for the interior. Troughs with abundant houseplant greenery and, garland-like, vintage-style bulbs arranged rhythmically on metal structures give the freshness to the rather dark space. The name “Gaisrinė” (fire station) itself appeared already after the acceleration of interior design processes, so it has been decided not to link the name directly to the interior. Name interfaces are maintained in a menu and social communication. The only interior interface with the name is a specially designed sign – red letter “G”.
