estudio HMA's mamba bar fuses oxidised iron tones with greenery in buenos aires

estudio HMA has completed the mamba bar in buenos aires, argentina. the idea behind the project originates from the culinary style of the restaurant, which the client describes as a disruptive gastronomic concept. the architect therefore creates a bold, almost sculptural interior that aims to reflect the fusion of flavors on offer at mamba.

the interior design by HMA is characterized by the large sculptural elements made from iron covered with triangular MDF boards painted in a marbled oxide tone. this piece becomes the backbone of the bar and restaurant as it connects various spaces, from the seating areas to the DJ booth. the shape of this intervention brings intimacy to dining tables and sets the scene for a warm and inviting atmosphere.

to balance the earthy tones of the interior, greenery is incorporated into the design. vegetation is utilized over the bar and in the outdoor seating area to bring an element of freshness to the space. the storefront of the bar showcases an artistic display of broken crockery which conceals the view into the restaurant. red neon signs are used to entice patrons into the bar, while also helping to bring an overall contemporary aesthetic to mamba.
