Located in the basement of a tenement house in Poznan, Poland, the Źródło.bar is a brand-new whiskey bar on one of the most popular streets in the city center. Designed by Adam Wiercinski Architekt, the once-empty space took a lot to get it to where it is today, which included plenty of cleaning. During the process, original brick walls and wooden/brick floors were discovered so they chose to preserve the charm while adding a new independent structure.
Inside, they used three steel structures that hold all of the elements, like seating and lights, and didn’t require being screwed into the walls. To work with the original elements, they went with a color palette of graphite and orange.
The main room called for the largest frame construction that includes seats that are connected together by a steel “bridge” with lights.
Seating and a storage shelf built from a steel structure within the entryway makes the most of the small space. The seats are a roller and a backrest that were made custom for this project.
Also located in the entrance room is the bar and it’s made up of one of the steel boxes. It’s small, but it incorporates lots of storage.
