4N design architects has created The Roundhouse in Wan Chai, a hip and cosy craft beer bar

Approached by a beer importer cum bar operator to design The Roundhouse in downtown Wan Chai, Hong Kong, the team’s biggest challenge was the limited space on both floors of the space. The bar required a kitchen, bar area, space for beer storage and appropriate seating, so the firm opted to put the large beer fridge onto the mezzanine floor while creating several beer pipes that run vertically to the ground floor bar that function as both beer transmission pipes as well as becoming a conceptual feature.

The ground floor then acts as the main part of business operation where kitchen and bar are located, while the Mezzanine floor became a speak-easy private area. Inspired by a brewery setting, over 30 choices of beer are displayed through bar taps along the bar counter.

Brown, white and black are used throughout the space, with red being the focus color. On the four-metre-high shop front, four pieces of industrial looking metal C-Channels have been used to create a striking facade to the establishment.
