Metzgerstüble Bar / DI Bernardo Bader

DI Bernardo Bader Architects have designed the Metzgerstüble bar and café in the Austrian town of Mellau.  The cafe is situated between one of the small town’s main roads and the water.   Made of wooden strips that vary in size to break the monotony of an entirely wood furnished structure, the cafe has a punched in window facing the water, while the front entry is more open.    When viewed from the water, it becomes more apparent that the wooden box is perched on top of a wall of large stones.  The juxtaposition of the soft wood with the stones makes for a pleasant contrast.  All furnishings, (even the lighting fixtures) are simplified to form a non-overpowering space which welcomes the residents of Mellau.
