Laboratorio Brew Room is a space dedicated to day and evening interactions by the nature of the two bars dedicated to craft beer/cocktails and specialty coffee. The concept wants to highlight this aspect and to bring together the two modes of operation in a single location through materiality and light and by the visible separation of the two main bars from space. Selected materials lead to a dialogue between existing and proposed design by contrast using stainless steel and reflective materials, dichroic films and by similarity using raw concrete in the screed and bar design.

The intention was to discover a space as you enter and walk through it, this being a bit counterintuitive with the opening to the street that seems to reveal the whole place. From the entrance, you see the bars and you also discover the reflective volumes that hide the bathroom, the locker and further some private spaces for deposit. The space is coordinated with the exterior, having two large windows that open in a folding system in order to invite the street to its interior. In our designs, we tend to look first to the context, interior-exterior and then to human interactions and how space is perceived or can be used, from seating to people interacting. This was the approach for Laboratorio.
