Matsu Izakaya&Roku bar is a new Asian project by Dmitry Akulov and Pavel Borisenko. It is a minimalist three-storey house in the centre of Kaliningrad with a panoramic view on the Lower Pond. The location and the cuisine specialty prompted the concept of a provincial Japanese village, preserving a concentration of this culture. We have carefully handled the traditions and textures of the Asian mentality, combining them with new materials and interpretations.
There comes a feeling of seeing a whole that meets today's aesthetic needs in colour, texture, composition, and space.
