Casa Cor Bar in Belo Horizonte, Brazil by BCMF Arquitetos

October 29th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

The brief for the Casa Cor Bar required us to explore the formal possibilities of applying a very simple and  inexpensive construction system: the light steel frame. Industrialized resistant high quality materials (stainless  steel plate, mirror finishing on the outside and matte on the inside) clad this custom designed object  built in just 3 weeks, to be portable and usable in various ways.

The bar was initially planned to operate in any open space, public or private, as a kind of non-site-specific  structure, and is supposed to be an informal lounge and retreat space within any context. With dim lighting  and some cork benches distributed at strategic points, the orange carpet floor unfolds into bleachers and  stepped platforms where people can relax and admire the landscape from inside or outside.

This unusual and irregular cruciform bolide has landed on a rooftop, in this case, but can be removed later on to anywhere else without losing its visual impact: a park, a plaza, a garden, or even the roof of another building.
