2014 香港中环

Craft beer tends to create a community culture. Craft brewers and drinkers alike love to come together to talk beer, new beers, old favorites, the latest collaborations and even the brewing process. A room with an atmosphere and dim lights and a very strong sense of identity was in the client’s briefing a mandatory feature. Idea of authenticity has been the driven motif in the developing design process. Real materials like painted or solid wood, copper, brass, marble, leather have been selected as opposite to typical layered materials like laminates or acrylic resins which normally used to replicate more expensive surfaces. All materials are solid to give a sense of permanence and consistency as opposite to the obsession of “sleekness” and “newness” so typical in Hong Kong’s interiors which end up being so “old” already after a few years. Ageing element is actually kept in account as an added value in recognizing the beauty of the signs of times on a solid surface.

Material board was made by looking at Tai’O typical fisherman house where like a patchwork a variety of textures and materials are assembled together. Rusted textured metal sheets are bolted on each other in a irregular way, wood panels are made of boards taken form boats or other houses and when assembled together they never happened to have the same color. Furniture are frequently made of the same building material of architecture like cement, tiles, painted wood and in order to resist the time they always come in heavy and thick thicknesses. All these elements are like words of a valuable language and it has been very easy to formulate them into a design concept. Wooden surface painted in various colors is like a skin that covers both vertical and horizontal surfaces. These panels are framed on the walls by horizontal brass profiles and vertical concrete textured pillars. The same wooden texture is also used for tops of counters and tables, framed by thick solid wood edges some of these tops have angular irregular shapes as if they were cut-out pieces.

Vertical panels are decorated by brass panels cut in angular lines and fixed to the back by bolts in the old style way. These irregular graphic textures are inspired by the Tai’O motifs but ironically meet pretty well with the ultra-modern sensibility in deconstructive lines.

Cool industrial look of brass panels adds on to the presence of the brewery’s tanks which are actually producing the brand’s craft beer distributed directly through pipes from the bar wall’s taps at the ground floor and from the central table’s tap of the restaurant at the first floor.    

Traditional black pendant lights typical of every old school Honk Kong restaurant are alternated to ultra modern “GLAS” light by Diesel-Foscarini and Aerodrome table design by Alberto Puchetti-Arboit for Northern Lighting 

Like lining fabric of a colorful tailored jacket the color palette of the toilet, in contrast with burgundy-brown dark tones of restaurant and bar has a very controlled image: gray cement paint on walls and floor combined with black and white angular tridimensional tiles.

工啤酒在香港极受欢迎,正迅速发展成一种社区文化。在云咸道,香港最中心的娱乐地段,有一家灯光柔和,有气氛,能体现本地文化和认同感的酿酒餐厅。


如何呈现真实,是这个项目的设计过程中一直引领设计师的主要想法。这个设计采用的材质是设计师参考大澳的旧式渔船和棚屋设计所选择的,不同的材质各自带不同的属性,拼在一起却又丝毫不显突兀。带着班驳锈迹的金属片以不规则的方式装嵌,实木板从废弃的船只和木房搜集回来,不同的色彩和纹路,各自带着以前的经历和痕迹,拼凑起来,便又成了一个新的故事。

 

设计师选择放弃了层压木材和树脂这一类常被用来在有限的成本内表达昂贵感的人造面材,而采用了实木,黄铜,大理石,皮革等材质。整个设计着重特显天然材质独特的质感纹理,以及经年累月的使用后将呈现的痕迹,设计师希望透过这些人造建材难以模仿的质感和份量感,讲述一个地道而充满岁月痕迹的故事。


而酿酒桶作为啤酒厂的基本配备,则为餐厅增加了一种工业味道。餐厅自制的精酿啤酒透过穿梭店里的管道直接从地下输送到一楼。具传统味道的黑色吊灯与 Diesel-Foscarini的 GLAS系列灯具及 Alberto Puchetti-Arboit的 Aerodrome系列灯具相间使用。
大门为玻璃配以黄铜饰件。

沿用楼下酒廊中以大澳的旧式渔船和棚屋为选材的主题的概念,为于一楼的餐厅在视角上也同样丰富。餐厅所用的家倶从设计选材到制作工艺,除了美观之外,皆以扎实牢靠,能抵抗岁月的考验为目的。当这些不同的元素搭配在一起,它们仿佛不同的词汇,设计师可以透过词汇的不同组合讲述心中的故事。横直交错的实木板上以不同颜色的油漆浅浅覆盖,以黄铜组件嵌在粗糙的水泥材质上。其余的实木板侧成为桌面和吧台的台面板,不规则的外型被保留下来,以边沿则以厚木条包覆处理。吊灯选用了和传统鱼市场类近的款式,配以餐厅内厚重实在的木材,不规则的拼接纹理,具层次感的颜色,当这些由香港传统渔船和棚屋中获得的设计元素走到了一起,他们被重新解构并注入新时代的活力。


洗手间侧一反店内浓重的暖色系,采用了门明快简洁的颜色和设计,包括水泥漾和定制的黑白瓷砖。这个餐厅内部设计项目,最终成为一个品牌形象的工程,透过设计表达品牌对真实,地道价值的追求。
