Lucky Bar

Located in Beijing, Lucky Bar was originally a ramen shop that has been adapted into a BBQ bar by the Chinese architects of Robot3. With a total area of only 52 square-metres, excluding the kitchen, the project features narrow spaces, a limited budget and a simple plan.

The selection of a few uncommon materials like galvanised iron plates, PVC curtains and paint results in a metallic hut that acts as a psychological switch and with a metaphorical meaning of “soft metal is the power to guard out nature.”

An informal dining position has been chosen, similar to the squatting one used in picnics. This generates a relaxing and intimate atmosphere that permits the diners to see the usually-neglected low dimension of the world.
