New York City-based Studio Cadena has designed Masa, a new restaurant in a northern residential neighborhood of Bogotá, Colombia. The restaurant is built on a residential scale, on the site of a former house. This is the second and largest space that Studio Cadena has designed for Masa, the first, also in Bogotá, is a smaller cafe that opened in 2014. The 7,500-square-foot building is organized as a grouping of distinct but interconnected volumes, each with a particular function. At one corner sits a cafe and bakery, which flows into the central entrance area that is adjacent to a dining volume and separate retail space.

位於紐約市的Studio Cadena工作室設計了Masa,這是一家位於哥倫比亞波哥大北部居民區的新餐廳。 該餐廳是在以前的房屋所在地,以住宅規模建造的。 這是Studio Cadena為Masa設計的第二個也是最大的空間,第一個也是在波哥大,也是2014年開業的小型咖啡館。這棟7500平方英尺的建築以不同但相互聯繫的體積為一組 具有特定功能。 在一個拐角處有一個咖啡館和麵包店,它們流入中央入口區域,該區域鄰近就餐空間和獨立的零售空間。

An outdoor patio space provides garden seating and connects the public spaces to the kitchen in the rear. Elements such as a long concrete bar, cylindrical wood-clad service station, and a multi-tiered seating platform at the entrance serve to modulate the space. Says Studio Cadena founder and principal Benjamin Cadena about his design, “The idea is that everything is connected, but the spaces remain fragmented for intimacy. In any space in the restaurant you might hear or smell things that give a sense of the adjacent spaces, but it isn’t completely open. The design defines distinct spatial volumes yet allows you to move through them with the freedom of an open plan.”

室外露台空間提供花園座位,並將公共空間連接到後方的廚房。 長長的混凝土吧台,圓柱形的木質服務站以及入口處的多層座位平台等元素可以調節空間。 Studio Cadena創始人兼校長本傑明·卡德納(Benjamin Cadena)談到他的設計時說:“這個想法是所有東西都相連,但為了保持親密關係,這些空間仍然是零散的。 在餐廳的任何空間中,您可能會聽到或聞到一些可以感知相鄰空間的東西,但它並不完全開放。 該設計定義了不同的空間體積,但允許您自由地在開放式平面中移動它們。”

From the exterior, the triangular cutout windows and entry open the facade to the street, meeting the life of the sidewalk and revealing the life within the restaurant. The geometric windows, including a large circular window that looks into the garden from the kitchen, adds to the playful, graphic quality of the space’s indoor-outdoor language. Says Cadena, “This project’s indoor-outdoor continuity is intentional, but presents a challenge in Bogotá, where the weather is perennial spring or fall and can be cold, chilly, or wet. In this case, we wanted to be sure that you could always feel the presence of what’s being made here, and that the space remained open to itself and to the street, and was invited to the city.”

從外部看,三角形的鏤空窗戶和入口使立面通向街道,滿足了人行道的生活,並揭示了餐廳內的生活。 幾何形狀的窗戶,包括一個大的圓形窗戶,可從廚房直望花園,為室內外語言增添了趣味性和圖形感。 卡德納說:“該項目的室內外連續性是有意的,但在波哥大卻是一個挑戰,那裡的天氣常年春季或秋季,天氣寒冷,陰冷或潮濕。 在這種情況下,我們希望確保您始終能感覺到這裡正在製作的東西,並且該空間仍然對自己和街道開放,並被邀請進入城市。”

A playfulness continues in the surfaces, fixtures, and furniture, all designed by Studio Cadena. Distinct sculptural lighting designs serve to distinguish the different volumes – large paper globes light the corner café, while hand-painted metal mesh hung from the ceiling catches the natural light in the middle volume. A unique floor made from large, hand-cast terrazzo tiles embedded within traditional terrazzo covers the interior public spaces. The walls are made of textured, cast-in-place concrete.

由Studio Cadena設計的表面,固定裝置和家具都充滿了趣味性。 獨特的雕塑照明設計可區分不同的體積–大型紙球形燈罩在轉角咖啡廳照明,而懸掛在天花板上的手繪金屬網則捕捉到了中等體積的自然光。 由嵌入在傳統水磨石中的大型手工水磨石瓷磚製成的獨特地板覆蓋了室內公共空間。 牆壁由有紋理的現澆混凝土製成。

These elements are born of an interest in updating techniques commonly used in Bogotá (such as terrazzo) as well as introducing new ones that are unique to the area – all part of a loose, cross-referential design context, and a restaurant that requires minimal branding. “The strategy from a design standpoint was that the architecture does the work”, says Cadena.

這些元素的產生源於對波哥大常用的更新技術(例如水磨石)以及引入該地區獨有的新技術的興趣-鬆散的,相互參照的設計環境中的所有部分,以及對餐廳的要求極低的餐廳 品牌推廣。 Cadena說:“從設計的角度來看,策略是由架構來完成工作。”
