Restaurant Design with Views of the North Sea: Pure C by Lieven Musschoot

Bars are places for meeting people and enjoying a cup of your favourite drink. Combined with an excellent design, a bar can also be a surprising place to draw inspiration from, like the Pure C bar and restaurant in Cadzand-Bad, The Netherlands. Created by Lieven Musschoot, the bar design is filled with light, creating a relaxed atmosphere for family and friends. The dunes and the North Sea offer amazing panoramas that can be enjoyed from any part of the restaurant. With a capacity of 180 persons, Pure C is divided into different zones with various designs and organization. You can choose between long tables in black wood trunk for large groups or small, two-person tables discreetly hidden by light white curtains. Large oval sitting islands occupy a central space in the design, giving the clients the possibility of relaxing and enjoying the meal and view. The designers say that : “At night the skylights have a golden shine from the gold-covered with circular discs of light fixtures.” A black stretch acoustic ceiling covers the bar area and black glass walls further define the space. A gas fireplace with floating glass offers an oasis of relaxation in the middle of the restaurant. [Photos by Koen Van Damme]

    Very Aesthetically pleasing just not entirely functional. This layout creates too many large party seating arrangements and most restaurants do not warrant that type of business for parties. At least here in the U.S. that’s the case. Maybe Its different in the Netherlands. But essentially I think you’ll find them having a lot of wasted space at tables and with those oversize booths, in all, not serving a lot of people for what is a very large space. Also, the layout doesn’t seam to lend toward the notion of accentuating the beautiful view of the surrounding of the sea putting too many customers backs at windows or creating too may bar tables where parties do not face each other to be able to converse as well as putt too many of the suitable table to far into the space that it cannot appreciate or take in said views. However, again, very aesthetically pleasing and the color pallet works very well. Makes it feel very home like while being very clean and modern. Looks very comfortable and like a place I would like to check out. Guess it would just depend on the food and if I’m ever in the Netherlands.

    Very cool. Were the oval sitting islands custom built for the project?
