Essay

In the former Säulenhalle beneath the small tower of the Werd Administration Offices, a restaurant with a glass shell has been constructed. The restaurant area is divided between two levels, while the entrance and bar areas are also on two storeys, so that one is reminded of the Hall of Pillars of former times. During the day it is run as an employees' restaurant that is open to the general public, but in the evening the mood changes: only the two-storey area to the front of the partitioning curtain is open as a tapas bar., the bed and grid can be reduced to a compact volume.

Comment by the nominators:
burkhalter sumi architekten embrace the possibilities of colour, and on that basis have designed an open space with urbanity, charm and the courage to be different.
