Architecture and experimentation office Grizzo Studio together with Rocio Martinez Serra, has sent us photos of the Moretti Gin Bar that they have recently completed in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The design of the bar incorporates elements that have been inspired by the gin distillery process and the materials used.
The starting point for the designers are the stills, which are in charge of the gin distillation process and are traditionally made of copper. This material and color is reflected in the bar, stools, lighting, and decorative elements.
The wall behind the bar is finished in polished steel and gray tones and is inspired by the rigorous laboratory work and perfection carried out in the distillery and the bartenders in their creations.
The designers discovered discarded copper shavings and found a second use for it. The material is hidden within the white concrete on the front of the bar, providing an element of texture.
Hidden lighting has been used to accentuate the discarded copper shavings within the concrete.
The copper shavings were also meticulously encapsulated within the copper-colored pigmented resin bar.
Another copper element in the design is the shelves positioned by the windows.
One of the walls of the premises is covered with resin discs that contain botanicals characteristic of the drink inside. These allude to current distillation towers that have portholes to control the manufacturing process.
Copper is also featured in the bathroom, providing a unique lighting design.
