Canadian office Batay-Csorba Architects has created a greyscale interior for the ShuckShuck oyster restaurant in Vancouver complete with a snaking concrete bar.
ShuckShuck’s interior is designed to evoke the colour and texture of oyster shells, with rough pre-cast concrete surfaces and textured painted walls.
Batay-Csorba Architects designed the eatery in Vancouver’s Chinatown district for owners Larry Lau and Waylon Sharp, who are serving up Pacific oysters with unusual toppings such as maple syrup and bacon bits alongside oyster margarita shots.
The oyster bar was designed to be informal, with the communal high concrete tables undulating through the room like a loop broken in two places.
Batay-Csorba Architects建築師事務所為溫哥華唐人街區的老闆Larry Lau和Waylon Sharp設計了這家餐廳，他們正在為太平洋牡蠣提供楓糖漿，培根碎和牡蠣瑪格麗塔酒等不尋常的澆頭。
To further echo the look of an oyster, the tops and sides of the bars are polished and smoothed like the inside of an oyster shell, while their undersides are rough and pockmarked.
If laid out end to end, the counters would be 19 metres long.
“The fibre-reinforced concrete tables mediate between the interactive qualities of a loose and casual ‘bar top’ and the intimacy and enveloping relationship of a ‘booth’ that wraps around you,” said Batay-Csorba Architects.
Batay-Csorba Architects建築師說：“纖維混凝土桌子在寬鬆和休閒的’bar top’的互動特性與環繞在您周圍的’booth’的親密關係之間，起到了調解作用。”
“Depending on where a patron is standing at the table their personal sense of space and level of interaction with others varies.”
The black metal stands that hold up the concrete surfaces have useful hooks for patrons to hang their bags and coats off the floor while they eat.
Apart from the concrete counters, the bar has little other furniture.
The floors are concrete too, to match the tables and the concrete columns. Industrial elements such as ceiling ducts have been painted white but left visible.
“This rough and loutish aesthetic is further contrasted with slender exposed bulbs delicately floating in a random pattern overhead,” said the studio.
Batay-Csorba Architects is an architecture firm based in Toronto. Another recent hospitality interior from the practice is this coffee bar with no furniture at all.
More architecture created as an ode to the tasty bivalve includes Zaha Hadid’s shell-shaped ferry terminal in Italy and an opera pavilion in the UK that’s made of oyster shells and champagne corks.
