继De Biertuin East酒吧成功改造后，Studio Modijefsky受邀设计位于阿姆斯特丹另一端的De Biertuin West酒吧。设计理念源自德国啤酒花园（biergärten），它是由树木环绕的室外开放区域，共享木制长桌上供应啤酒和美食。De Biertuin West酒吧兼具室内外空间，设计团队决定将啤酒花园的氛围引入室内，在外立面和室外露台营造城市花园的氛围。
After the successful renovation of De Biertuin East in 2015, Studio Modijefsky was commissioned to design De Biertuin West on the other side of Amsterdam. The concept is inspired by the German biergärten, an outside open area usually surrounded by trees, where beer and food are served on long communal wooden tables. As De Biertuin West has both inside and outside space, Studio Modijefsky decided to bring the biergärten atmosphere indoors, with an urban garden vibe for the external façade and outdoor terrace.

Linearity, togetherness, and warmth are the concept’s main components. These abstract elements are translated into an interplay of raw, rough materials often found in outdoor spaces such as concrete, wood (sourced from parts of old wagons), aged red copper, and oxidized green copper. As a nod to the craft beer served here, the copper alludes to the traditional tanks in which it’s brewed. The walls are covered with a soft touch of recycled oak to enable the leather on the customed furniture stand out and highlight the bar’s dark grey concrete texture. Warm and dark tones on the ceilings and upper plinths form a background for the rows of lightbulbs connecting the two areas.

Detailing is inspired by the building’s original architecture. The irregularity of the dated red bricks is counteracted by the geometry of the lined-up light bulbs and the rhythm of the square wooden elements that rebound from the ceiling to the tables. A typical biergärten has a lot of lines: the rows of tables and benches; the planks the tables are made out of; the lines of ceiling lights. This geometry is applied in a variety of ways throughout the interior. Wooden planks climb halfway through the walls to serve as wall panelling and a structure for the signage boards. One large column stands in the middle of the left side of the bar, covered in red tiles whose glossy texture is intensified by the reflection of the luminous spheres hanging from the ceiling. Pre-existing black and white poured terrazzo become a playground for the studio to play with shapes and colours, in conjunction with a herringbone wooden floor that moves across the bar’s largest area. Long lines of high tables join with solid leather benches and wooden barstools to outline De Biertuin’s beating heart: the bar. Here you can find the real stars of the show: the beers, which bask in the brightness of warm lights that emphasize the roughness and details of the surrounding textures.

室外露台由12组定制长椅和长桌组成，其中一些桌椅表面覆有深灰色混凝土面层。暖光灯网连接露台和酒吧立面，引导人们穿过街道到达橱窗上的菜牌处。界定露台外边界的大片常春藤灌木丛塑造出自然美，向游客展示了De Biertuin West酒吧的特征：绿植遍布各处。这些绿植统一了室内外空间，营造出构成项目核心的啤酒花园氛围。Studio Modijefsky通过温暖的色调和柔和的灯光调和再生材料和粗糙的纹理，再次赋予旧建筑精致而新颖的触感，这里属于De Biertuin家族，又别具特色。
Outside, the terrace is defined by a composition of twelve wide customed wooden benches and tables, some of which are detailed with a layer of dark grey concrete on top. A grid of warm light bulbs connects the terrace to the main building’s front façade, crossing the street towards the menu boards placed on the windshields. The terrace’s wild nature is characterized by a thick portion of ivy bushes that defines the perimeter of the patio. These bushes introduce visitors to De Biertuin West’s defining feature: the plants and greenery spread liberally throughout. They unite the interior and exterior and imbue both with the biergärten feeling that forms the project’s backbone. By balancing reclaimed materials and harsh textures with warm tones and gentle lighting, Studio Modijefsky has once again given a sophisticated yet original touch to a pre-existing architecture: a place that is clearly part of De Biertuin family but has its own unique character.
