The bar is supplied directly by the production of the neighboring brewery. Several objectives guided us during the design of the project: First, the search for contextual architectural simplicity, and the expression of a humble place evoking the idea of a “factory bar”. On the other hand, the expression of a frugal architecture, concerned with its energy sobriety and the cycle of the materials used for its construction. To recall the memory of the place, the brick apparatus evokes the idea of temporary storage of the brick on the site. To respond to this concern and to a search for frugality in the act of building, the bricks are associated with lime and not with cement, which will allow them to be easily reused during the demolition of the building. Still in this search for energy sobriety, we have chosen to use the heat produced by the beer factory to heat the bar area. The heat from the vegetable waste resulting from the brewing is recovered thanks to a system developed specifically for the project.
