Greyhound Bar

My second project made with Brooke Tucker, when she gave her last class in the UK in September 2006.

It is meant to be set in a posh theatre bar, where the patrons take cocktails before the performance. I love the Art Deco period, and so it was a pleasure to make another project set in this era.

I have furnished it exclusively with Bespaq furniture of the era, from their Moderne range.
