Homie restaurant branding & interior design by Hanna Oganesyan

This project hails from an architect and designer in the Ukraine. I felt it timely to showcase how much talent exists in the country that’s currently under attack.

Designed by Hanna Oganesyan under her namesake studio, this café brand accentuates the beauty of raw materials and the juxtaposition of refined textures. It’s a beautiful dichotomy that weaves a narrative of taking the unrefined and creating something beautiful which translates well into how the coffee and food is made.

I love the merchandising of the wine bottles on the wall. It takes a heroic placement and allows their beauty to shine while creating an intelligent way of simultaneously upselling while serving as a message about what the cafe provides.

Touches of life are introduced throughout the space in the form of greenery which offsets the harshness that raw materials can visually create.

The only critique is the lack of graphic elements that can establish a sense of place. This isn’t a knock on the designer though as this is focused on the interior designer, specifically. However, introduction of graphic elements can create a more unique experience that’s hard to replicate without causing suspicion of plagiarism. Other than that, it’s a beautiful look and I truly wish I could visit!
