원재료가 전달하는 물성의 특징은 비교적 저렴한 비용으로 공간을 정의한다. 폴리카보네이트 판넬 (우리나라에서는 렉산골판) 위 밝은 은색으로 도장, 전체적인 빈티지 공간의 감성을 담아낸다. 현대적인 약간의 세련됨도 함께 한다.
architecture in china: located in beijing, ‘lucky bar’ was originally a ramen shop that has been adapted into a BBQ bar by robot3. with a total area of only 52 square-meters, excluding the kitchen, the project features narrow spaces, a limited budget and a poor location. given this, the architecture team decided to propose to switch the perspective, generating a contemporary and shiny space with an ultra low price, referencing the wormhole theory and using cheap materials.
each ring road of beijing is a rough division between social classes. the invisible walls made up of power and wealth divide the city into pieces of fixed territories, some of which are inaccessible to the majority of its inhabitants. each area has a stable hierarchical structure and complicated codes that design aims to overcome and crack. with ‘lucky bar’, robot3 proposes a wormhole, or a multi dimensional tunnel connecting two distant spaces.
the selection of a few uncommon and cheap materials like galvanized iron plates, PVC curtains and paint results in a metallic hut that acts as a psychological switch and with a metaphorical meaning of ‘soft metal is the power to guard out nature’. an informal dining position has been chosen, similar to the squatting one used in picnics. this generates a relaxing and intimate atmosphere that permits the diners to see the usually-neglected low dimension of the world.
