At the streets Syggrou and Valaoritou takes place a new urban transformation of the city of Thessaloniki, Greece. The old small industry shops are converted to coffee-bars, pubs, alternative restaurants…
The area combines the old with the new, the alternative with the common. And, basically, ‘cheap’ entertainment..
A new place was created there, a coffee-bar, in a building that is said to be the oldest in the town of Thessaloniki. It was built at the end of the 19th century, and was the private house of the famous merchant ‘Allatini’, known as such since 1926.

Located in the iconic night life district of Beirut, the MYU bar/restaurant inhabits an old small liquor factory. The design concept is based on creating 2 separate spaces of bar and restaurant defined by 2 vaults different in scale. These vaults which form a room within a room are made of stretch black fabric that is translucent. The original space is kept as found with graffiti and traces on walls and ceiling. The indirect cold cathodes lighting is dimmable thus allowing the space within the vaults to become darker and more defined once the light is dimmed. The restaurant and the bar communicate by a large \”window\” allowing people to connect visually.

192 Shoreham Street is a Victorian industrial brick building sited at the edge of the Cultural Industries Quarter Conservation Area of Sheffield. It is not listed but considered locally significant. The completed development seeks to rehabilitate the once redundant building, celebrate its industrial heritage and make it relevant to its newly vibrant context. The brief was to provide mixed use combining a desirable double height restaurant/bar within the original shell (capitalising on the raw industrial character of the existing building) with duplex studio office units above. These are accommodated in an upward extension of the existing building in a contrasting but complementary volume, a replacement for the original pitched roof.

The Bar “La Bohème” (entre amis) is located in the “Galeria de Paris” street, amidst the downtown area of Porto. The redesign sought to implement and structuralize the space, creating its own identity. The solution was formalized through the texture and the colour of the wood, which defines the space and provides depth to the structure’s design. This structure, which was placed along the corridors and namely at the walls and ceiling, allows to subvert the whole appearance of the space, appealing to its visitors sense of discovery.

While Australia’s lane way phenomenon has been primarily about Melbourne and in more recent times Sydney, a small bar has just opened in Brisbane that attempts to put a pair of shoes on the casual barefooted bar culture of the Sunshine State. Super Whatnot is located in Burnett Lane in the middle of the CBD. Surrounded by alternative EMO youth and hobos salvaging cigarettes it’s the perfect destination for the city’s first serious lane way bar.

Designed by the studios “T3 Architecture Asia” and “Less Is More Design”, this elegant Lounge bar follows the thematic of the Sins. The design was pushed down to the smallest details (furniture, artwork, curtains selection, lighting), in collaboration with local enterprises as to show it’s possible to provide a high level of quality (design and construction) within a reasonable budget in Vietnam. Architects voluntarily seek to distinguish the different areas corresponding to theseven deadly sins, while keeping the entire unit (level ground resin, stucco wall, styleof furniture).

It is a bar located in a shopping district in Shimokitazawa. Looking at the bare dismantled concrete space, we decided to carefully minimize what we added to the space. For the interior design of the store, materials and colors were purposefully selected to be simple and minimalist. We balanced with scrupulous care what to remodel and what to leave. We thought an unostentatious design could produce a space that would become a background of the visitor,the furniture and music by making the most of the virtue the space had originally had.

Soul Box restaurant / bar is located on the main party street of Vilnius city, bearing the same name. The bars’ interior design concept is based on simplicity: two separate spaces – the restaurant / bar and the dance floor. The main axis of Soul Box is an 8m long bar, wrapped in square plywood structure elements, which easily transform into shelves, handrails or lamps. The versatility of the structure elements is what helps create the ambiance of the bar. Building structure and other elements of the old premises, which match the interior, have been uncovered. Soul box has resurrected the architectural heritage of a bygone era, of a building that perhaps for a bit too long, was left empty.

The BLUETUBE BAR presents the TUBE-IT system as a feasible and flexible low-cost constructive resource. This system is based on the assembly of “corrugated tube” and “plastic clamps” and it has recently been tested in the construction of a temporary bar for the annual academic festival in Porto – [Queima das Fitas do Porto 2010].
