adrián urdiales transforms discarded tank into rustic bar in ecuador


adrián urdiales transformed a pre-existing water reservoir tank that was used to supply water for irrigation into a rustic bar for a rest pavilion in ecuador. the tank was purchased from an argentinean company and was transported and located in the same area as the current project. the clients use this space as a distraction from the fast-paced life in the center of the city of macas, as well as for fish and livestock farming.

adrián urdiales aimed to turn the part of the outdoor space into one for leisure and informal use that has a direct relationship with the natural context and can be enjoyed in the company of family and friends. this intervention is an annex of a large cabin for events and a bonfire area. it consists of two spaces: the bar area located inside the tank, which was adapted to make it habitable, and the living area where a sunken room is located for relaxation and connection with nature. the designer covered both spaces are covered by a wooden pergola and translucent polycarbonate.

the optimization of resources was key in this project, the owners had quality wood from the amazon region such as pechinche, yumbingue, seique, jicopo, among others, which the designer decided to use. they covered the structure of the room, the perimeter deck, the pergola, and the shelves of the bar, thus achieving a warm and cozy atmosphere. the vertical slats function as permeable elements and frame the vision towards focal points giving continuity to the landscape.

the living room and bar area are integrated through ceramic tile flooring that combines colors with organic and geometric patterns to create a modern space with personality. one of the conditions of the design was to preserve the natural rust of the tank acquired due to its discarding outdoors, therefore achieving the desired rustic touch. the project is surrounded by vegetation and is part of the environment, valuing the landscape and creating outdoor experiences.
