From the architect. The Nw bar is located in an artificial lake next to the wNw café. To create a contrasting space to the cafe, the bar is designed as an enclosed space which can be used for different purposes such as music concerts, shows, ceremonies etc.

A structural bamboo arch system was designed for this dome; 10m high and spanning 15m across. The main frame is made by 48 prefabricated units, each of them is made of several bamboo elements bound together. The building uses natural wind energy and the cool water from the lake to create natural air-ventilation. On the top of the roof there is a hole with a diameter of 1.5m for the evacuation of hot air from the inside.

As a new architectural element, the style of the two buildings of wNw becomes the focus of the landscape and work in harmony with the surrounding residential area. Although the function of the building sis a bar, it has its own uniqueness and has become a landmark of urban landscape.

It represents not only modernism but also traditions. The building gives a luxurious feeling but at the same time remains gentle in its atmosphere. The bar is now alsoused for town meetings and other social activities. The two buildings originated from nature. They now merge in harmony with nature. With time they will return to nature.

Good afternoon,

I work at Lonely Planet here in London, and we'd love to feature some of your images of the Water & Wind Bar. Would you please be able to get back to me at christina.webb@lonelyplanet.com?

We can (of course!) credit you and the name of the photographer alongside the image too.

We are on a very tight deadline now, so it'd be great if you could get back to me as soon as is possible.

Thank you - I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Christina

Have been there few motnhs ago, and this part of the Wind & Water cafe was not open... because of insects invasion. I hope they solved this problem. Anyway, it is still a very small space and the details of the construction are way less aesthetic than thedrawings.

There is another part, that is cute but not wonderful either, on the other hand.

Vietnamese....not Chinese.

Kamyar · March 30, 2012

It seems that all the Chinese are excellent copy pasters ! The form and the ventilation idea is exactly the same as one type of Iranian architecture domes , and the aperture above has been very common since hundreds of years ago in Iran . The Bamboo idea is completely suitable and green here , but the bamboo cover also reminds me of a contemporary Iranian architecture project , " The Bamboo Structure " by Pouya Khazaeli ( available in archdaily ) .
Ofcourse the scale and technical details and specially the furniture of this project is very unique .
