Ester Bruzkus Architekten is an architecture and interior design practice, founded in 2002 in Berlin, with extensive experience with design at many scales – from the design of tables and furniture to exquisite residences and workspaces to international theatres, restaurants and hotels.
Straight lines, precise planning, material contrasts – and plenty of surprises. The architecture of Ester Bruzkus and her team makes use of contrasts of thick and thin, sharp and soft, curved and straight, rough and smooth, common and opulent, colourful and restrained, playful and well-resolved.
Red-stained cabinets crafted from MDF surround the open kitchen of restaurant Remi in Berlin designed by local studio Ester Bruzkus Architekten. Remi is situated near Berlin’s Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz square and is led up by Dutch chefs Lode van Zuylen and Stijn Remi.
This is the second restaurant that the pair have in the German capital, joining Lode & Stijn which opened its doors in 2016. As with their inaugural restaurant, the chefs were keen for Remi to have a pared-back aesthetic – but also wanted the space to be reminiscent of the dining spots they once frequented at home in the Netherlands.
Local studio Ester Bruzkus Architekten was brought on board to develop the interiors of Remi, which takes over the ground floor unit of a new concrete and glass office building.
The restaurant is anchored by an open kitchen, enclosed by a series of MDF cabinets that have been stained a deep cherry red hue. A handful of surfaces in the kitchen have been covered in rough grey stucco, while sheets of perforated metal have been used to conceal service ducts that sit beneath the ceiling.
The same red shade of MDF has been used to make the tall gridded shelves that run along the rear wall of the restaurant, openly displaying wine bottles, glassware and jars of ingredients. Cherry-red MDF has then been combined with black granite to form the service counter where guests are greeted by staff before being shown to their table.
Each table is accompanied by timber or acid-yellow chairs by Danish furnishing brand Please Wait To Be Seated. There is additionally a couple of wooden benches with seat cushions upholstered in mustard corduroy fabric by Kvadrat.
Red, yellow and steel editions of Muller Van Severen’s Hanging Lamps have been mounted on the restaurant’s walls as decoration. White-neon tube lights also wind and intersect across the ceiling.
Ester Bruzkus Architekten has been established since 2002. Remi isn’t the only Berlin restaurant designed by the studio – back in 2018, it completed LA Poke. Taking cues from David Hockney’s 1967 painting A Bigger Splash, the eatery features vibrant pops of summery hues such as cobalt blue and sunshine yellow.
