Kabar bar – resto by kappari by Mind the Ark, Athens

April 7th, 2014 by retail design blog

The bar is located in the historic center of Athens. An interior space as well as the facade of the old neoclassical building was renovated very carefully, with great respect to the character and the energy that the old structure has. The ground floor was turned into the main room of the bar and the neighboring exterior space was turned into the restaurant.

In order for the restaurant to be open during the winter, without losing its feeling of an outdoor space, the yard was roofed with an opening metal construction and transparent panels. The need to highlight the elements of the architecture’s building along with preserving some materials which preexisted from previous uses such as the stone walls, lead to the choice of the industrial design as the main designing style. A choice which also supports the desired profile that the owners wanted to create for it.
