Morecambe银色咖啡馆

Arca事务所设计的位于Morecambe步行广场的银咖啡厅现已完成。它成为该镇的独特的新地标。兰开斯特市议会下属的“夺回Morecambe风貌”开发委员会委托设计了新的咖啡馆和公共厕所。

咖啡馆的正面和背面都是玻璃。不锈钢带包裹整个空间,透过玻璃窗可以观看Morecambe海湾,玻璃还可以抵御恶劣的海洋气候。闪亮的有机形态成为西海岸的一个“句号”。

咖啡馆位于台阶上,高于海堤,南面有一个户外座位区。可在台阶上布置座位。使周围的空间有人气。厕所使用橡木硬木门、钢铁配件等坚固的材料。

1998年John Lee离开格里姆肖创建了Arca。他们的小而前卫的设计实践很快就赢得了关注。他们获得了2000年青年建筑师奖和青年建筑师作品奖。

近期的项目包括Greengate, Salford的最高建筑,在利物浦Tate的装修项目和伦敦Highgate的住宅项目。赢得的高端设计竞赛包括:Timber Wharf城市概念竞赛,Hulme/Knott桥,

该机构也获得了商业和管理奖,2000年英国的创新“视觉100”奖。

Manchester architects Arca have completed a beach café on the promenade in Morecambe, UK.

A band of stainless-steel cladding wraps around the sides and roof of the cafe, and overhangs the two glazed facades that face the promenade and the bay.

In front of the cafe there is a south-facing outdoor seating area on two levels.

Silver Cafe, Morecambe

 

Arca’s Silver Cafe on the promenade in Morecambe is now complete. It provides a distinctive new landmark for the town. The new cafe and public toilets were commissioned by regeneration body ‘Winning Back Morecambe’, part of Lancaster City Council.

Central to the design are window panels that span the length of the building on both the front and back. A silver stainless steel band wraps the space, framing views of Morecambe Bay through its glazed facades and withstanding the harsh marine climate. This shiny organic form acts as a ‘full stop’ to the western end of the seafront.

Raised on a series of terraces, the pavilion sits above the sea-defence, and provides a south-facing outdoor seating area for use by the café. In use, the cafe seating can spill out to occupy the various levels of the terracing, animating the public space around. For the toilets, robust matt painted steel with warmer oak hardwood doors and fittings are used.

Arca was founded by John Lee after leaving Grimshaw in 1998. The practice quickly won attention for its open approach to creating and running a small design-led practice, as finalists in 2000 in both Young Architect of the Year, and Young Architectural Practice of the Year

Recent projects include Greengate, Salford’s tallest building, the refurbishment at Tate Liverpool and residential development Garnham Lee House in Highgate, London. High profile competition wins included the Timber Wharf Competition for Urban Splash, and the Hulme/Knott Mill Link Bridge, both in Manchester.The firm also received business and management awards for its approach to organisational structures, named as one of the UK’s innovative ‘Vision 100’ companies in 2000.
