If your looking for a drink or want to grab some good food look no further than this alleyway hideout. The Pink Moon Saloon can be found, built into a vacant lane in between two office buildings in Adelaide, south Australia. Designed by sans-arc studio, the space is cleverly maximised to include a venue fit for a bar, kitchen and an outdoor courtyard.
The innovative long and narrow site features a bar and a restaurant, the design derives from the typology of a wilderness hut, which influenced the strong use of timber and its vernacular form. Adapting to the narrow alleyway, was a challenge but a Japanese influenced method of spatial arrangement was adopted to enable not only enough light in, but to in still a unique and warm atmosphere.
This approach, also saw the building divided into two huts with a courtyard based in between, the bar faces the street and the dining hut at the rear, this layered approach equally fills both the spaces with light and as people journey through, it creates a unique atmosphere and journey adding to the experience at The Pink Moon Saloon.
