Mimosa architekti creates stripped-back interior with a pop of color for Avocado Gang bistro in Prague
Avocado Gang is the first avocado bistro & restaurant in Prague. The venue, situated in a first floor space of a street corner residential building in Prague’s neighborhood Karlín, was designed by studio Mimosa architekti.
“Avocado is great raw, “as it is”, or prepared in 100 and 1 different ways. 100% healthy but also a pretty solid attack on the gall bladder. Rich and saturated in color, but ‘pastel’- toned down at the same time. Wonderful – if handled well – or at least a bit different. Avocado gang should be the same, a place where you can find avocado in pretty much everything, maybe just with the exception of liquor – and that’s only before it’s “cocktailed”. The simple longitudinal space of the restaurant offers a 9,3 m long table with 22 seats in the center and more seating along the walls. The open kitchen allows any of the customers to verify the freshness of their brunch. The multicolored center table is derived from the strong colorfulness of the avocado and the foods prepared from it. “Non-colors” on the scale of grey are a background for colorful objects – be it the table, chairs around it or – and this especially – the foods served here. The table is composed of spruce solid wood square timber in a 160 x 100 mm profile on legs from heat galvanized steel. Spruce is further present in the interior in the form of a glazed bio-board, the heat galvanized steel as bases for other tables, chairs or as lighting and veneer for the longitudinal wall separating the customer area and the restaurant’s facilities, as well as in the form of sinks and other elements. Everything is tied together by the cement floor finish and the light grey walls. However enough space is left for the avocado itself – whether you expect it in the form of guacamole or avocado pancakes with bacon,” says Petr Moracek, architect at Mimosa architects
