Union Jack Pub by Metropolis & Yellow Office studios, Galati – Romania

July 30th, 2013 by retail design blog

This design was created by the architects Dragos Epure and Vladimir Mindru. It is located in Galati city, near Donau river. The “old English sailing and conqueror spirit” was the inspirational idea behind the design of the pub close to the watercourse.

Materials chosen were brick- recovered from the disposed buildings- for the walls, in contrast with the classical fancy looking furniture designed especially for this pub. The industrial style is present using basic metallic lamps, with exposed bulbs. English sea navigation habits are emphasized by inserting a shipping container in the wall, used as an entrance for the toilets. The ceiling is made from perforated metal sheets, covering the ventilation and electrical systems and contributing as well to the industrial rough appearance.
