Villa Zarri Beer Factory near Bologna, Italy
The old warehouse of the Villa Zarri beer brewery and it’s elegant garden with the original Villa Zarri shall be revived with a new concept of a beer experience world. The proposal is inspired by the liveliness of Bavarian beer gardens and new modern restaurant concepts and event gastronomy.
Architecturally a central boulevard isestablished, which connects the new street-side entrance to the refurbished warehouse and further to the park-like garden, where it links with the neo-baroque axis of the Villa Zarri. Along this boulevard the different theme events and spaces develop.
The materialisation is based on cortene steel and timber to generate a golden, beer-like atmosphere. This goes well with the industrial character of the prefab 1950s warehouse with its beautiful concrete roof vaults.
