D´espresso bar

A new bar called D´espresso Bar has been opened recently at Madison Avenue, New York city. It was designed by the architectonic studio Nemaworkshop. Architects have literally turned the bar on its side using impressive wall-papers. The initial idea of the client was to build a unique and creative space that links to the style of the near-by Grand Central Station. As for the inspiration, a next-door Bryan Park library was used, what it is evident at first sight. Entering the bar, one takes notice that the room was turned on its side right away.

This illusion is created using wall-papers not only on the walls, but as well on the ceiling and floor. The idea of turning everything on its side accentuates the concept of the bar that sells coffee to “take away”, as we take away a book from a library. Diffusing glass used on the counter contrasts with the book motive on the wall-papers and lights up the space. Furniture is very simple, though stylish and sophisticated. Whole interior is innovative and original, but cosy and relaxing at the same time.

  1. I am distracted, I am used to see books the other way around, would be interesting to see if the same thing happened if you actually went there!

  2. I think that everything published was actually very logical.
    But, what about this? what if you were to write a killer headline?
    I am not saying your information isn’t good, however suppose you added something
    to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean D´espresso bar — ARCHITECTURELOVER.COM is a little plain. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles to get people to
    open the links. You might try adding a video or a related pic
    or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written. In my
    opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.
