This is what happens when you take frames intended for temporary hospitals and cover those frames with found material; this is the Noorderparkbar designed and built by Bureau SLA and Overtreders W. The two firms came up with the idea to put a coffee bar into a public park in north Amsterdam, so they designed and constructed the park using materials they found themselves. Now the Noorderparkbar stands with it’s tall terrace, white bar area, and green-tiled bathrooms. A fun detail about the project’s exterior is that the wooden boards have been charred using a traditional Japanese technique called shou sugi ban.
