Rapid fit out transforms Dundee pub
September 15 2011
The quick turnaround project took just six weeks to take from initial concept to seeing punters back behind the bar.
Project architect Scott McIntyre told Urban Realm: “The client approached us with a limited timescale and budget to radically change an existing and dated Irish Bar. He wanted a modern and contemporary bar that was warm and welcoming like a traditional bar.”
Utilising a range of period and reclaimed materials, light fittings and furniture to reduce costs the pub is centred on a feature reclaimed Edison light bulb with exposed filaments.
“We established a strong visual concept of an industrial packing warehouse that would give a radically different interior that would lend itself to the refurbished and reclaimed items”, notes McIntyre.
“We have used packing case stencils on the wall to create a graphic wall of text,” McIntyre added, noting: “we used a large tactile timber wall made from off cuts and distressed timber planks to define space and create a strong focal point as you entered but also offering a warm and traditional feel yet done in a contemporary manor.”
