Bo Zen Bar, Portugal : Braga Project
Space Within Pre-existing Building – design by Central Arquitectos
20 Mar 2013
Contemporary Braga Bar
Design: Central Arquitectos
Location: Braga, Portugal
New Bar in Braga
The challenge proposed was to design a Bar located in a preexisting 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.
The use of mirrors reflects the ceiling´s delicate decorative and other architectural details of the interior environment.
The design of the ceiling comes from a reinterpretation of an oriental motif, standardized by a module that materializes a delicate mesh strongly emphasized by indirect lighting application.
The lighting has been designed to reflect and accentuate the elegance of the space.
The bar space transports you to a warm environment where a fascinating blend of traditional and contemporary evocative elements lead the client to a private living room.
