Bar and Restaurant „La Fuente“ – Burggasse, Vienna, Austria

This bar spans over several levels. The architectural concept reveals an intended flow of movement. The passer-bys are invited and stimulated to enter. It is a place to see and be seen.
From the side walk of the Schrankgasse, one can conveniently enter the upper bar room. The floor of which resembles that of the Schrankgasse. This part of the bar is identified as the casual area for food and drinks. The glass doors help to separate, whilst connecting the inside from the outside.
Upon descending the stairs, one reaches the gallery, which is portrayed as a bridge, serving as bonding intention between the upper to the lower bar room. The guest has the ability to have a peek at the lower bar room if he so desires, namely through indiscreet air holes and slits. The massive glass windows allow for a mutual insight from the inside out and vice versa.
The second bar room situated underneath the gallery is more intimate. The mutual insight is no longer existent.
