MO Bakehouse / Espresso Bar
Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia
Masquespacio developed a concept based on water, which is an element that change perspectives matching with MO’s intentions to do things different
The space hereby was divided in 3 different parts that each present a phase in the process of making baked goods and coffee with water as the main ingredient. In the bar zone a huge waterfall created by sandblasting each tube creates the illusion shape of water and frosts the feeling of what is beyond. In front of it, we can find the ‘solid state' area where a huge series of lamps that represent ice are the main attraction point, while next to it we can see some gigantic bulbs showcasing the ‘gaseous state’ as a series of fire bulbs to represent the moment when the pastry is baked in the oven.
Concerning the furniture, every item has been customized and designed for the project, offering different seating options to create different experiences for the visitors from low lounge seating and shared tables to high stools and semi-private couple seating. A grey and white color palette has been chosen with metallic finishes for the tables and fabrics to generate reflections that create the distortion that could be made by water. On the other hand, the lighting incorporates fully controllable RGB-lighting to set the moods that could convert the space in a different status.
