Appreciation towards designRESERVE for providing the following description

项目位于前门东侧,这里曾是北京最早的商业街坊,临近天安门广场和历史性城市中轴线。作为以文创产业和当代生活方式为动力的“邻里复兴计划”组成部分, “大小”品牌被地区开发机构引入,并成为主力租户之一。仅有10平方米的紧凑空间位于交通干道边,可作为门户通往背后修整梳理过的胡同网络,其中包含经过翻新的四合院建筑群,由文华东方酒店集团管理。

▼店面与胡同街区,storefront and Hutong

The project is located in the eastern quarter of Qianmen, historically the earliest commercial streets of Beijing, with adjacency to Tiananmen Square and the city’s historic axis. As part of the “Neighborhood Revival” plan, BigSmall Coffee was brought in by local redevelopment agency to become an anchor tenant to what will be a collection of creative businesses re-shaping contemporary urban life of this historic area. Accessible from main street, the 10 square meter compact space works as a gateway to a newly upgraded Hutong network, consisting of local residences and numerous courtyard houses managed by Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.

设计面临的挑战,是如何将与本地居民一墙之隔的沿街商铺,转化为活跃的公共空间。

The design’s challenge is to transform the miniature space into an iconic storefront and an active neighborhood “living room”.

▼转角街景,corner view

狭窄的空间里容纳有两种主要业态,白天是精品咖啡馆,夜晚是以金酒为主的鸡尾酒吧。内部功能的转换通过外立面的设计体现出来。由不锈钢和铜板制作,半圆形“表盘”覆盖了入口上方的墙壁。“表针”从清晨店铺开业时启动,并在傍晚顺时转到刻有“Mona”的鸡尾酒吧招牌背后,标示着夜间功能的启用。这一仿佛日月交替般的装置,给街道的日常引入另一种可感知的时间度量。

The narrow space accommodates two programs, specialty coffee shop during daytime, and craft gin bar at night. The shift in program is expressed through a mechanism on the exterior façade. Made of stainless steel and brass plates, a semicircular clock-like installation forms the upper part of the façade. During daytime, the “clock hand” carrying the coffee shop logo moves along a programmed track. At dusk, the logo plate will eclipse behind the signage of the gin bar, indicating the change of activity. Symbolizing celestial motion, the animated storefront creates a time-measure for the daily life of the community.

通过对屋面的改造,引入充沛的自然天光,使原本只有北向洞口的幽暗房间获得新生,并因此而创造出一种如画室般的气氛。透过拱形天窗可以看到南侧的老宅屋脊,也使人仿佛置身庭院之中。狭长的室内平面被设计紧凑的吧台分隔成操作区和客座区。明亮的金属材质由外立面贯通入内,与屋架的旧木梁和斑驳砖墙面形成清晰的对比,预示胡同中出现的新生活方式。

▼室内空间平面图,interior plan

The original flat roof was replaced by arched skylights, bringing in abundant natural light into the north-facing interior, transforming the once gloomy room into an outdoor-like space. The roofline of the adjacent courtyard building is visible through the skylights, evoking a sense of being in a traditional courtyard. Sharing the same materials of stainless steel and brass, the entire bar is welded together with the façade, becoming one structurally and visually. The gloss and precision of metal is contrasted with the roughness of the original timber beams and cement wall. This material composition signifies dramatic changes happening in this historic Beijing neighborhood.

根据对“大小咖啡”品牌文化的理解,余留地希望为北京备受压制的“街头艺术”创造一个容身之处。客座区的墙面由艺术家绘制的壁画所覆盖,鲜活的色彩通过玻璃门窗映入灰沉的街道,成为令人注目的风景。吧台的背景是一扇可升降的铝合金卷帘门,上面喷绘着中国城市“小广告”风格的菜单品名。在白天光线下,两个相对的表面形成一种强烈的夹缝感,如同一条消失在人们记忆之中的胡同。

Understanding BigSmall’s brand philosophy and roots in urban culture, designRESERVE hopes to build a “hideout” for Beijing’s much suppressed “Street Art”. Spanning two walls is a mural painted by an invited local artist. The mural’s vibrant colors and playful shapes are visible to the street, adding much needed color and energy to Beijing’s repetitive grey streetscape. Opposite the mural is a large steel roll-up gate painted with coffee menu in the style of street fliers commonly seen in Chinese cities. Sitting at the bar, wedged between the mural and the steel roll-up gate, is as if one is sitting in a narrow pedestrian ally, a disappearing Hutong in the everchanging city.

夜晚,卷帘门向上收起,显露出背后由亚克力板和铜杆构成的酒架。盛有金酒的透明酒瓶被粗糙的深色墙面衬托,并反射在阵列的圆形镜面里。层层映射的温暖灯光将空间转换成一种洞窟般的场景,并在昏暗的街道上成为路人的指引。

At dusk, the roll-up gate is lifted, revealing liquor shelves made of cantilevered acrylic panels and custom brass parts. Rows of glass gin bottles are set against circular mirrors and rough-textured plaster. Warm light project through the transparent shelves, making them planes of light which then reflects off surrounding glass, mirrors and metals. The symphony of light and reflection give the room a mysterious grotto-like quality, provoking curiosity in passing pedestrians.
