This bar/esplanade is built like a garden house with a skeleton in painted reinforced concrete, under which the areas of activity are set out.

To avoid a shut-in space with an added terrace, the construction includes a small enclosed area just 60m2 as well as two esplanade areas totalling 100m2.

Glazed elements separating the interior and exterior can be completely removed, thus enabling the various areas to function as one continuous space.

The pavilion’s geometry and the way it was built create an environment that is open to the river as well as an intimate atmosphere under the roof.
