Towering the space, large interpretations of the typical "Bierhall" traditional chandeliers hang above the communal tables. These large circular fixtures made of perforated hot rolled steel, diffuse gently the light through their perforations. We then declined this language into a family of similar elements, such as the exterior overhung façade and the steps transition between the different levels inside the space, all made of crude steel.
During the demolition, the removal of some materials exposed original high quality long hidden elements; Layers of history with which we’ve decided to work, such as the terrazzo floors and the original stone façade of the building. To the existing materials, is grafted the warmth of wood walls upholstering and the sobriety of crude steel elements, enhanced by a contrasted black and white palette to heighten the mood.
Das Bier is primarily a place for beer lovers and there are several subtle and less subtle allusions of it throughout the project. We’ve designed the restroom’s entrance wall with a composition of 7500 white and gold beer caps assembled into a pattern that reflects light and shines through the space. In addition, the ceiling in the lounge area is made of an assemblage of aluminum beer barrels on which we’ve added lighting fixtures, bringing down the ceiling for a more casual effect.
