Polished Concrete -  50ft Copper Encrusted Curved Bar Top by Concrete Design Studios  Jameson Distillery, Bow Street, Dublin, Ireland

JAMESON, BOW ST. - PROJECT

The Jameson project was one of the more exciting projects we worked on in 2016. We were commissioned to fabricate a concrete bar top for the ‘Makers Bar’ in the new Jameson Distillery visitor attraction on Bow Street, Dublin.  The use of different materials in this room makes this a truly beautiful space with the contrasts of refined and rough surfaces.

 

The concrete bar top measures 50ft and features a subtle sweeping curve. The client specified a dark grey, raw concrete with a copper aggregate. To achieve this finish, we incorporated copper filings within our concrete mix. The surface was polished to expose glimpses of copper which glisten under the light.  ‘Pin holes’, a naturally occurring characteristic of concrete formed when air pockets are trapped at the surface, were retained to produce a natural aesthetic whilst maintaining a sleek, smooth, and tactile concrete bar top. The concrete is sealed with a high-grade sealer that lasts forever with little to no maintenance.
