Shape established an exciting collaboration with a new music brand Spiritland, which was founded in London, and is built around excellence in culture, curation and listening. A unique hi-fidelity, hand-built sound system delivers an unparalleled audio experience with a cultural and musical programme to match. Spiritland re-frames the bar and listening experience, delivering drinking, dining, socializing and musical enjoyment in a relaxed setting. Comfort, precision and integrity are reflected in the use of Ash Mocca, brass, concrete, red marble, linoleum and Sapele-faced Birch plywood, to create sound studios, collectors’ cabinets, chef’s table, retail space and bar frontage. This unique offering spans both bar, restaurant and retail environments and includes a recording studio. Completed by an outdoor seating area made of woven timber, which provides a rhythmic feature which frames the entrance to the unit.
Sapele veneered Ply and Ash Mocca-medium Multi-ply were used for their rich colour and warmth and to compliment the industrial aesthetic of the bar space.
The internal studio panels are made from a combination of sprayed MDF and Sapele Ply, creating a dynamic and acoustically beneficial environment that responds to the materiality and character of the main bar area.
