Rada Lounge is on an intervention that respects the existing architecture of a house built in 1949, creating spaces that integrate new elements with transparency and neutrality.

The exterior facade remains intact. In the interior, the bar has areas with 50’s style armchairs. The ground and top floor, meet in a double height space where the dance floor is located which faces a glass curtain: a public showcase that gives strenght to the project, a place to see and to be seen.

The terraces on both levels beside the garden create the back façade, an interesting motion of planes and heights. The garden is a terrace partially covered by a mesh held from three rows of metallic columns. A line of light of capricious angles crosses the floor from the beginning of the terrace up to the columned area, attracting the sight and inciting to follow it.
