MYU restaurant by Paul Kaloustian, Beirut

November 21st, 2011 by retail design blog

Located in the iconic night life district of Beirut, the MYU bar/restaurant inhabits an old small liquor factory. The design concept is based on creating 2 separate spaces of bar and restaurant defined by 2 vaults different in scale.

These vaults which form a room whithin a room are made of stretch black fabric that is transluscent. The original space is kept as found with graffitis and traces on walls and ceiling.

The indirect cold cathods lighting is dimable thus allowing the space within the vaults to become darker and more defined once the light is dimmed. The restaurant and the bar comunicate by a large “window” allowing people to connect visually.
