The first branch in Atasehir, İstanbul which was also designed by GVDS entered service in 2015. The second branch of Grill Polonez Restaurant entered service in Vadi Istanbul Shopping Mall in February 2018 with the signature of GVDS Architecture.
The restaurant is located in relation with the outdoor; it is shaped by an atmosphere that creates familiar and intimate feelings for the user.
Grill Polonez Restaurant with 850 square meters area accommodates open and semi open terraces. The seating areas was organized according to different age groups’s requirements with the same design but different units. Thanks to this space, the restaurants can easily accommodate crowded groups. In this way, the spacious place is dissociated into smaller pieces and identities for the person or group of people can embrace the place. The design and layout of the tables and seating groups were carefully chosen to suit every requirement.
The kitchen is designed to be semi-open so that customers can follow the cooking process and feel safe about hygiene. Grill Polonez Restaurant is designed with a large meat section where customers can shop for butcher and deli.
The use of raw materials such as wood, stone, brick and rope at whole place provides to meet guests with a warm welcome.
A semi-open sheer ,which is about 2,4 km long ropes, was applied on de beams that inspired by the ship’s backbone. This light ceiling cover has solved for both possible acoustic problems and the ceiling has been lowered to match the human scale. These ropes are softening the atmosphere in the room and converting the emerging technical problems to advantage.
The canopy roof with wooden beam design was inspired by the plane wing section . Thus, terraces associated with the main building, are spreading outwards that makes brightness the terrace area. This roof shape puts Grill Polonez Restaurant in a different position among others.
Grill Polonez Restaurant and GVDS Architecture collaboration will continues with new branches in several places later on.
