Being a coastal city, Qinhuangdao City has gained expansion and prosperity over the years. The West Port District is where it started to bloom into a big city and the West Harbor Garden in the district is the first phase of the construction project to build an international tourist port by Hebei Port Group. Covering approximately 20 hectares, the project comprises areas like Qinhuangdao Grand Wharf, South Stack House, and areas along Laogang Road, Kaoshan Road and Qingsong Road. The abandoned facilities of the port area have been re-planned, re-designed and transformed into major scenic spots.
The bar was transformed from a two-story old building. After carefully studying the unique wharf culture of Qinhuangdao Port, the design team added innovative and modern design concepts to the bar while retaining the original architectural features as much as possible. The design team had a very clear purpose: to retain the authentic ambience of the port area: industrial, historic, coastal and modern.
The facade of the bar features elements resembling oars and has a clean style, reflecting the spatial characteristics of modern architecture in terms of points, lines and surfaces. The elegant and artistic harmony between different elements fits in with the design purpose, generating in the heart of visitors an “illusion” of being surrounded by the vast sea where they can listen to the sound of waves and enjoy the unfettered state of mind.
Walking into the bar, people will instantly be mesmerized. Wouldn’t it be fascinating to take a sip of wine in the breeze, and enjoy the sunset and night view by the sea with some jazz music haunting in the air?
Once entering the bar, guests will be greeted by a roomy open hall, in the middle of which is the bar area. The rest of the space is made up of semi-open or private areas to meet different needs. Each window in the semi-open area perfectly captures the view of the old docks of the historic sites. The design team enriches the overall design of the bar by varying the size of each segregated space. In this way, the whole space is divided but the general integrity remains intact. From the façade to the main area of the bar, everything is well arranged and beautifully proportioned.
The design team has also been very sophisticated in the choice of color and material: the nostalgic navy blue and greyish green, combined with wooden materials and supplemented by warm-toned lights, seem capable of bringing back the good old days and creating a sense of perpetuality.
The bar windows, curved in an elegant way, resemble those in a steamer, reproduces the style of the harbor in the past and embodies the coastal harbor culture. The combination of custom-designed deck wall lights and brass components has a kind of harmony with the space. And the choice of artwork displayed furthers adds charm and glamour to it.
The Angel Bay Reconstruction Project not only carries the culture of the hundred-year-old Harbor, but also implies the infinite potential of the port for future development.
