Retail & Commercial

The brief was for two bars on the lower floors of an existing building. The smaller, Oak-lined cocktail bar is at street level, leaving room for a generous entrance. With the drinks at one end, and a small stage for live music shows at the other, the basement bar occupies the full length of the site. Using the sidewalls as a source of light expands the space horizontally, and the cast-concrete furniture give a strong sense of personal location.
