Located at one of the oldest and longest streets of Kyiv, Velyka Vasylkivska street, the Follower restaurant takes over the two-floors of the brick historical building with the panoramic windows on the central façade. The newly renovated building itself well known as «stalinka» was built in the 1950s by Ukrainian architect Osip Kryvoglaz and has become a part of the entire ensemble of Soviet architecture in Kyiv.
As designers, YODEZEEN, was faced with two essentials tasks: maximum preservation of the historical past of the building, but at the same time, the creation of a restaurant space where the offline and online presence of visitors is strongly intertwined, a space that leaves no opportunity not to post it on social media.
