Beer Garden, 2019 EXPO Shandong
Client Homeihort Association, China
The client is inspired by beer gardens and would like to have a similar concept. The aim of the design is to create a relaxing space for visitors to socialise at the show as part of the large compound area.
At the lower level, a seating area creates a sunken effect and a sense of space with a cosy and relaxing ambiance. The modern bar with a pavilion creates a striking focal point within the space as well as providing shade, entertainment and socialising opportunities for visitors. A strong link is provided by the stepping stones within the grass area that provide easy accessibility between the compounds.
The hedge and perennial planting provide simultaneously a private enclosure and an aesthetically appealing view from the busy surrounding area as if it were a different outdoor room to relax in.
