Star Burger is a restaurant designed by Kyiv-based Sergey Makhno Architects. New food+design inspiration has just landed in the center of Kyiv. Star Burger is our answer to the question «Can I eat a delicious burger in a restaurant with a delicious design?». Оn the one hand, Star Burger has the modern rebel spirit. On the other, the restaurant is a point of calmness in the bustling city center.
The experimental project was implemented in a month. We started working on December 3. In February tasty burgers meat were being fried in a kitchen of the restaurant. Following the client’s wish we based our visual strategy on the corporate colors – black and green.
A new restaurant combines classy feel with cozy one. One of the challenges was to create comfortable functional environment. Open and versatile space encompasses 2 floors. Depending on your emotional and hunger level you can choose place to seat. Entrance to the restaurant is through the Star Shop. Innovation for us and for Star Burger restaurants. Guests say “like” – and we are satisfied.
Classic American bar atmosphere is blended with unique design elements. 150 light fittings designed by Sergey Makhno illuminate the restaurant. Like in an orchestra, there are lots of elements which embody harmonious composition. Suspension luminaires not only grab attention, but point out eating zones. Clay chandeliers are of different size and shape.
The ground floor zones are more for socializing, while the second floor ones for relaxing. People conventionally call the second floor «family one». There are lots of soft zones there.
Bespoke detailings were carefully selected. Couches are made according to our studio drawings. We did not overlap floors connecting them with «wooden portal». Due to this, the first one has additional light. Valuable element of the luminairу collection is sconce “T3”. This metal lamp decorated with gold imitation is Sergey’s present for the Star Burger owners. It is a good luck symbol.
Inspired by bees and soft natural lines, they demonstrate authenticity and connection with the environment. Another invention of the designer is a unique light wall which resembles a chemical lab inside the restaurant. In addition to this, it perfectly matches with an overall loft-like look of space.
