Interior Café l’Etage is made in the style of French restaurants with their inherent combination of simplicity and sophistication.


The architects managed to realize the special atmosphere of the institution not only with the help of architectural and planning solutions but more so through the delicate and thoughtful work with details. This applies to stationary partitions made of metal, glass, wood, and furniture of individual production, and the variety of textures and surfaces that saturate the space, and, finally, a large number of living plants.
