Text description provided by the architects. Attention: Construction Site!
"Entourage" means firstly, socialization but also what we want to become and leave behind us, into a big marriage with the future.
Our socialization on different layers, we must take it as a positive game, firstly with ourselves. It is a game that make us not to be subordinated to some dogmas, it is a game that should make us expect to learn continuously. To learn that we are different and that it is ok to be so. That also we are in a continuous workout in this construction site of our souls and our perceptions.
The construction site as a simple environment, instantly accesible, existing in non-finished, recycled state is what is enough to have and use in this performance of mutual meeting. It is a stage in which the purity of materials – wood, concrete, metal, glass – exposes to meeting in the same time with our entourage and our sublimation...
The rough materials brought into dialogue by the rythm and the anti-rythm are a constant theme of this place ambient. The bar is a first counter where since you enter you register and dock to the proposed socialization game. The three huge masques graphic as an enlighting wall across to entrance is composed from diverse faces, mixed, culturally ambiguous, show the light of the great déjà vu, in which we are encountered.
The filter of an imposing “E” at entrance reminds us that we pass the portal to a new state of mind - Entourage3.
