Underwood restaurant is part of the Selena Hotel Complex, which is located on the banks of the Dnieper River in Cherkassy.
It is located on the first floor of a two-story building, together with the hotel, which is located on the second floor. The restaurant has one hall with the hotel and is divided into two parts, the restaurant itself and the bar – a cheese dairy. The main idea of the reconstruction was to create a connection between the interior of the restaurant and the surrounding landscape, since before the reconstruction the restaurant had a smaller area and did not have “access to nature”.
We proposed to add another volume to the existing building, which, due to its transparency and the height of the gable roof, was supposed to create the very atmosphere of unity with nature and add the seats necessary for the restaurant. The new volume was neatly inscribed between the existing trees so that they, along with the surrounding landscape, became part of the interior and removed the border between man and the natural beauty of this place.
