Nestled in between two existing buildings is the Pink Moon Saloon, a uniquely designed bar and restaurant from Sans-Arc Studio.
February 24th, 2016
A narrow alley in Adelaide has been transformed from what was previously just a home for refuse and debris into a unique and charming small bar, the Pink Moon Saloon.
In designing the space Sans-Arc Studio answered a brief that requested a space with a sense of “narrative of the outdoors, a childhood memory of fire cooked food and camping in the forest.”
The bar and restaurant are separated into two small huts, with the first housing the bar with a wall of stools, making the most of the space without cluttering it with free standing tables or booths. The second hut is home to the restaurant and dining area, and a courtyard sit snuggly in between the two huts, overlooked by the relatively towering surrounding buildings.
The Pink Moon Saloon channels that idea of childhood memory through a use of familiar Australian materials and stonework. The structure of the huts is naturally framed in timber, using locally sourced Australian hardwood as cladding, and local stone flourishes have been employed throughout.
