SPATIAL DESIGN FOR ROOF TOP BAR 'STOREYS' / by Tess Acheson

studioTAC worked on the design for 'storeys' in the summer of 2015. Atop a multi storey car park overlooking the iconic BBC building, a pop-up summer long bar was being planned. We were asked to come up with an affordable design using low-rent materials such as pallets to transform the space but with minimal long term impact. Moreover, the space needed to have the architectural infrastructure to cope with its functions: bar, seating, loo's, event space, food trader pitches, stretch tent for cover, yet it was far from permanent infrastructure. studioTAC designed these elements on a consultancy basis and handed all designs over to their build team. Here are some of the drawings and images from planning to the space in full flow.
