SteamRhino Brewery 2.0

A Range of Colors that Defines Spatial Experience

Leisure
Bars dedicated to the enjoyment of German, Irish or Austrian craft beer are often places with excessive decoration designed to evoke their countries of origin, instead of representing the nature of beer itself. In these places, decoration makes direct reference to countries in a way that could be considered folkloric. As a breath of fresh air, SteamRhino delivers an atmosphere directly related to beer through features such as materiality, texture and color.

SteamRhino is home of an inspiring Chinese brewing company. Main production takes place in Hebei Province, but the flagship store is located at the heart of the capital of China, by Qianmen Street, a historic area on the south side of the iconic Tiananmen Square. Located on the third level of a group of commercial buildings, the space comprises 280 m2.

The shape and color of its fermentation tanks inspired a golden metallic mesh that envelops walls and ceilings, creating a unique sensory experience for diners. In fact, the mesh’s shape follows the geometry of the tanks. Its smooth curves create an inverted vaulted ceiling that hides all the ventilation, air conditioning, sound and lighting equipment installed between the slab and the metal mesh. The mesh is also used to create vertical partitions between different areas, descending from the ceiling in a sequence of stepped layers.

The entrance, the VIP lounges, the terrace, the semi-private rest areas and the central hall are designed with a limited range of materials: golden metallic mesh, cherry wood and dark bamboo wood, and leather. On the other hand, soils are defined in two areas: corridors with cherry wood planks and seating areas with tiles.

The selection of materials is an abstract interpretation inspired by the tonalities of craft beer.

The furniture follows the range of colors used on floors, walls and ceilings, creating a unitary image. Like beer itself, SteamRhino is designed as a single recognizable image that also presents a wide variety of details and variations.

蒸汽犀牛啤酒馆 2.0

运用丰富的啤酒色彩打造非凡空间感受

那些畅享德国、爱尔兰、或奥地利精酿啤酒的酒吧,时常运用大量的装饰设计来勾起人们对原产国而非啤酒自身质感的遐思。在此类场所,装饰总是以一种传统民俗的方式来作为相应国家的直接指代。蒸汽犀牛恰似一股清流,通过直接与啤酒相关的特色元素来营造一种独特氛围,诸如质感、纹理和颜色。

蒸汽犀牛是一家另人振奋的中国啤酒酿造公司,其酿造生产主要在河北省。旗舰店位于中国首都北京中心,临前门大街,是标志性建筑天安门广场南隅历史地段。蒸汽犀牛选址于一组商业建筑的三层,占地空间达280平方米。

发酵罐外形与颜色启发了金色金属网栅灵感,并打造出墙壁和开花板,给予就餐者一种独一无二的感官体验。实际上,金属网栅外形沿袭了发酵罐的几何形态。柔和平滑的曲线勾勒出反式拱形天花板,将那些安装于板坯与金属网栅之间的全部通风设备、空调以及声光设备统统隐藏起来。此外,金属网栅兼作不同区域之间的纵向隔断,从天花板向下呈台阶式次第铺设。

入口、VIP贵宾休息室、露台、半私人休息区以及中厅的设计选用有限的原材料,例如:金色金属网栅,樱桃木和黑竹材料;座椅采用真皮制作。另一方面,地面划分为两个区域:门廊采用樱桃木板,座位区铺设瓷砖。

材料选择灵感系对精酿啤酒色调的抽象诠释

家具延续地板、墙壁与天花板色调,打造统一和谐的意象。正如啤酒一样,蒸汽犀牛被设计成一个独立的公众形象,呈现各种各样的细节与变化。
