Blackhound Bar and Lounge
Carved out of the SWNY space with a separate theme and entrance, this venue is an intimate and modern interpretation of the speakeasy, featuring a leather tufted, paneled bar at the front and, accessed through a set of saloon doors, a discreet plush lounge in the back that invokes a private living room.

Bo Zen Bar
The challenge for the architects was to design a Bar located in a pre-existing building whose concept was to create a space with the characteristics of a private living room. The project explores the creation of a noble and refined place with a strong oriental inspiration. A mixture of noble materials such as marble, wood and gilt metal combined with a palette of warm colors and textured fabrics offers a cozy and comfortable ambient. A monumental hall marks the entrance with a contemporary style and leads to the living room of the bar.

Bar in a Cave
The great natural entrance to the Caves of Hams in Mallorca houses a lush botanic garden. It is in this entrance that the bar is situated and made up of a piece of backlit glass of 10 metres in length. The counter of the bar, the most important element of the project, is fitted into a concrete cavity made up of straight lines, designed to contrast with the organic forms of the cave and can be closed under a transparent cover.

Numero Bar
This bar design was built on a very narrow and long strip of land in the Jardins area, in São Paulo. A walkway runs from the street through a hallway/tunnel fully covered in mirrors, leading to the main hall. At the Numero bar entrance, the ceiling is extremely low and the view of the hall – cascaded – is unimpeded. Progressing towards the back, the height gradually increases: descending levels feature comfortable lounging areas, under a ceiling that extends on a continually rising surface.

Q Bar, Beijing, China

Q Bar Beijing
The architects were approached by the owners of Q Bar to design the new rooftop. The design was required to solve several issues: to contain the sound produced by the clientele, to create a half-enclosed environment, with different views, with places to partially hide. the architects thought that the best solution in this case was to use an architectural device that could partially enclose vertically and horizontally the space. It is abstract, almost as a sculpture, a vertical stele 3.5m high. By duplicating this device on the rooftop the space is organized, separated, and fragmented. The result is an environment that allows intimacy and stimulates curiosity.
