The main point of the interior design in the restaurant Viisi Penni was the customer satisfaction, and that the customers are important and are welcome anytime to Viisi Penni, our common living room.
In Viisi Penni, you can drink a glass of beer, wine, whisky, read magazines, watch television, enjoy good company and eat your stomach full of some wonderful home-cooked food.
Viisi Penni is a part of the elite of the traditional taverns in Helsinki. The restaurant opened its doors near the customs of Töölö in 1956. Therefore, it is one of the oldest neighborhood restaurants with the same name and same location in the whole country.
The renovation of Viisi Penni has been challenging. Its long history has been taken in account during the renovation. During the renovation, we united two different restaurants, in different buildings, together.
Both the downstairs, which is suitable for socializing, and the cozy upstairs offer a natural milieu for comfort able hangouts combined with tasty food.
Accordingly, the interior designing in the restaurant Viisi Penni started with the idea that the customer is starring; the customer feels welcome to the restaurant and can enjoy him or herself. Therefore, we had no gimmicks or special features, but rather just the interest of the customer in mind. In addition to the space planning and the interior design we were in charge of the projects overall management.
The décor, furniture and lighting have been fully renewed during the renovation. The color scheme is darkish, but still warm. As materials we used real tile, dark wood and finger panels, for example. The goal of the interior design was highlighting the warm atmosphere of the restaurant. At same time, we added a pinch of manly charm. We used linen and leather in different kinds of patterns and colors, for example, for the fabrics of the furniture. A part of the walls are wallpapered with fun checkered pattern.
The restaurant was originally opened in 1956 and it has now been updated to the 21st century. Our customers have been very satisfied with the renovation. Regulars, who have been coming to Viisi Penniä for 30 years, have embraced it once again. Jaana is a true visionary, who knew how to combine old and new and also understood the needs of the entrepreneur. It has been a pleasure working with Visionary Design Partners Helsinki Oy.
