Búho, shortlisted in the 2018 Guernsey design awards, was developed from a palette of locally available reclaimed materials, designed to provide a robust and flexible space with a welcoming atmosphere. A layering of natural tones and textures form a vivid background canvas allowing accessories and guests to provide vibrant highlights.
Almost every aspect of bars, booths, tables, wall linings and ceilings have been bespokely designed by DLM and fabricated locally to form a cohesive theme of detail. The raw materials selected provide a rich warmth and varied texture, a constantly changing ambiance throughout day and night.
Existing structure is clad in reclaimed brick, with a monolithic black brick and steel bar contrasting against the venetian plaster beyond. Elsewhere heavily charred timber identifies more intimate zones, with distressed planks defining spacial breaks.
