Corner Store Bar

Corner Store Bar

This project was to refit the underutilised back of house that was attached to the already popular Corner Store bar. The aim was to open up the space through to the courtyard and create a naturally lit bar that could be used for corresponding functions. Loft windows were added to connect the courtyard into the existing bar area which in turn allowed natural light to flow into the space. Our vision for the bar was to tie in the refinement of the front bar and the rawness of the courtyard.
