nilay patalia architects’ concept for bangalore, india-based bar ‘big brewsky’ is focused around a single word: curiosity. from the street, the space looks more like a fortress then a social gathering place, but that’s kind of the point. with a palette of exposed brick and concrete, one is only given a single clue — the sign — the rest is imagination.

indoor and outdoor spaces are loosely defined 

 

 

 

the plan is sub-divided into two large blocks, connected via a courtyard and elevated walkway. as visitors and beer-lovers enter, they catch small glimpses of what lies in the back yard. on further exploration, they walk smack into the center of the main plaza, from which they become completely immersed in the massive, open gathering space. all functions; restaurant, bar, and club all overlook the open area and pond, which glows a ethereal green at night. the essence of the building is further by subtle use of interior elements like furniture, curated artifacts, and lighting
