The bar is housed in the loading dock of an abandoned beauty school. The brief was for a laneway bar to retreat from the glossy retail frenzy in adjacent streets. The laneway elevation is composed of a large window, melding the bar and laneway. The method of construction is exposed and celebrated. The steel window reveal is stitched together in ‘W’ profiles, fire rated posts are wrapped in hessian rope and an LED light makes the perforated steel logo glow at dusk.
