Location: Dallas, Texas
For this simple, bar and dog park concept combination, we wanted to focus on a strong and solid material pallette. With the central bar volume being the main focus of the space, we saw this as an opportunity for a monolithic and recognizable structure and aimed to combine them with a vibrant and inviting color palette that would work with the playful concept brief.
With the bar volume, central to the space, being the main structure, we chose to clad it in full standing seam metal, laid out horizontally. A toned down grey color contrasts with the bright yellow applied signage and art. The main volume is wrapped in a natural wood deck, keeping existing greenery preserved and transitioning in main decomposed granite dog park and seating area. With a simple and straightforward concept and program we used material texture and bright color to provide a visually playful and fun environment.
