- BAR DESIGNSatelliet Brown Competition
- ‘Bar 09’ competition brief inspired me to design a bar & lounge for the modern day traveller at Heathrow airports terminal five.
- Designers such as Richard Rogers, Fabio Novembre, Zaha hadid and future systems inspired me to use curved lines, new materials and colours to create a futuristic yet retro look and feel.
- Rogers Stirk Harbour and partners carefully planned the flow through layout to move passengers in one direction towards the security points efficiently. This inspired me to create fluid layout which controls the flow of people from the front of house, passing the bar towards the lounge area.
- Inspired by the retro clean lines of the hotel interior, designed by Andres Escobar. I played on the interior on board an aircraft with a futuristic twist. While the slanted back lit bar with spot lights above reflects a sense
- I wanted to create a dramatic effect with the ceiling design by creating a large LED panel stretching from behind the bar. The yellow, brown, black and metallic tones introduce strong contrasts for a retro feel.
The lounge has booths incorporated into the rear wall, reminiscent of cabins with additional open plan seating and an internet wired high table to accommodate business travellers.
- The exploded axonometric view shows the layers of how the bar lounge would be constructed.
Large window panels at the front and side of the building allow plenty of light in allowing full views of the terminal.
- My Bar design entitled ‘the hub’ was selected for entry into the Satelliet Browns ‘Bar 09’ competition which
was held at Earl's Court London.
It came runner up in the competition.
