The renovation of KPY Novapolis Round restaurant was completed in autumn 2021. Partanen & Lamusuo Ltd. designed the furniture and interior design for the restaurant.

In the renovation of Round restaurant, the old auditorium was transformed into a two-story dining area. There is a stage-like area for relaxing coffee brakes. The dominant elements of the interior design are the impressive acoustic panels and the cone lamps.

The rational and efficient use of the premises was emphasized in the space design. After the renovation, the restaurant has 319 seats.

Restaurant Round has seats for customers on two floors.

The comfortable furniture guarantee a relaxed coffee or lunch time.

The cabinet located in the old side of the restaurant was completely removed. The space was utilized by relocating the food line to the area. Stairs were built near the windows to access the new customer seats upstairs.

During the renovation of the old side of the restaurant, the third food line was removed from the space, the kitchen was expanded and the location of the sales counter was moved closer to the kitchen.
