Appreciation towards Stu/D/O  for providing the following description:

“即在此处”是业主所希望表达的整体经营理念,设计师以此作为这个位于Ekkamai路上的屋顶餐厅酒吧的名称和设计概念。Stu / D / O通过现实与超现实主义并置的方式将“无处”这一理念重新诠释,并利用楼梯这一最基本的建筑元素来体现。

▼楼梯元素运用在整个空间中,stair elements are used throughout the space

“NO / WHERE but NOW / HERE” is the expression given by the owners as the name and concept for this rooftop bar and restaurant on Ekkamai road. Inspired by this phrase, Stu/D/O reinterprets the idea of “nowhere” into the concept of the juxtaposition between reality and surrealism, which is represented through one of the most fundamental architectural element: stairs.

▼室内一览,internal view

传统意义上,楼梯通常被用来连接空间,并引导人们到达不同的楼层。然而,在这个项目中,楼梯被赋予了新的意义,而不仅仅是引导的作用,设计师利用它来实现 “NOWHERE”这一概念,这和埃舍尔( MC Escher)的作品《相对论》如出一辙。在“无处”中,楼梯是连接不同功能和空间的主要媒介。楼梯既是作为室内的两个连续的通道,又通过改变高度为餐厅创造新的功能,例如作为公共区域的座椅、桌子、吧台。

▼埃舍尔( MC Escher)的作品《相对论》,MC. Escher’s artwork, “Relativity”

Traditionally, the stairs have been used to connect different spaces and lead people to different levels. However, in this project, the stairs were given a new interpretation, instead of leading somewhere, it leads to ‘NOWHERE’, like the idea by MC. Escher’s artwork, “Relativity.” At “Nowhere”, the stair is the main feature in connecting the functions and spaces altogether. In two continuous loops, the stairs provide new possibilities of functions within the restaurant by varying the height of the platform, creating different functions such as seats, tables, bar, and communal area.

The restaurant plans to serve both in the daytime as a breakfast venue for the hotel guests and in the nighttime as the bar and restaurant. To show the contrast of day and night through the changing of sky, loops of stair are designed to link the entire space from the first step to the last and vanishes into the sky, accenting the concept of ‘Going Nowhere’.
