Papundekl Architects has turned a former car workshop in Prague into a bar and events space with a brutalist slant.
Dark cement plaster and steel furniture lend a ‘raw, scenic atmosphere’, as the architects describe it, to the Studio Krymská, which is located beneath an apartment block in Prague’s Vršovice neighbourhood.
A new entrance and frameless glazing help link the bar to the street outside, with the original red brickwork visible in the downstairs cafe and bar. An events space is located further inside the building, with room for screenings, exhibitions or club nights.
Papundekl Architects has tied the space together with inky colours, using dark curtains and furniture alongside strip lighting to introduce a moody, semi-industrial feel.
