Q Bar Beijing
Design: crossboundaries architects
Q Bar Beijing, China
We 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.
We 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.
A second device is the bed-box. The initial idea was to frame the night view of the city. The box provides shelter and intimacy and it is also a practical storage during the winter season. The interior space of Q Bar has an interesting concept: nothing on the walls. Only the red paint that in this way creates a plain background for the bar crowd. In the same way the outdoor rooftop uses the same red combined with the wooden panels. Only two materials in order to reduce the visual pollution.
