CASA COR BAR

Casa Cor Bar in Belo Horizonte

The brief for the Casa Cor Bar required the architects to explore the formal possibilities of applying a very simple and inexpensive construction system: the light steel frame. Industrialized resistant high quality materials (stainless steel plate, mirror finishing on the outside and matte on the inside) clad this custom designed object built in just 3 weeks, to be portable and usable in various ways.

The bar was initially planned to operate in any open space, public or private, as a kind of non-site-specific structure, and is supposed to be an informal lounge and retreat space within any context. With dim lighting and some cork benches distributed at strategic points, the orange carpet floor unfolds into bleachers and stepped platforms where people can relax and admire the landscape from inside or outside.

This unusual and irregular cruciform bolide has landed on a rooftop, in this case, but can be removed later on to anywhere else without losing its visual impact: a park, a plaza, a garden, or even the roof of another building.

O briefing para o Bar Casa Cor requeria explorar as possibilidades formais de aplicação de um sistema construtivo simples e barato: o steel frame light. Materiais industrializados resistentes e de alta qualidade (telhas de chapa de aço inox, espelhado por fora e fosco por dentro) revestem um objeto customizado de construção industrial leve e rápida, utilizável e transportável de várias maneiras.

O bar foi inicialmente planejado para funcionar em qualquer espaço aberto, público ou privado, de forma não “site-specific”, e pretende ser um local informal de espera e encontros rápidos. Com pouca iluminação e alguns banquinhos de cortiça distribuídos em pontos estratégicos, os assentos se desdobram do piso em arquibancadas de carpete laranja, onde as pessoas podem relaxar e contemplar a paisagem, de dentro ou de fora.

Esse inusitado bólido de forma cruciforme irregular pode ser removido posteriormente para qualquer outro lugar sem perder o impacto visual: para um parque, uma praça, um jardim, ou até mesmo o terraço de um outro prédio.
