It Looks Like a Cabin, But…
Its a Charming Gastropub
Matiya Marovich of Sans-Arc Studio is the principal designer behind this small but very charming gastropub in Adelaide. Pink Moon Saloon’s design was inspired by childhood memories of Marovich’s outdoor experience; a pitched tent, cool breeze, and a fire keeping you warm and cooking your food. Pink Moon Saloon is built mainly of native Australian materials, such as Spotted Gum, Tasmanian Oak and Ironbark, much like the huts and cabins found in mountain adventures. Pink Moon’s design stays true to its roots with a lot of fine woodwork showing off its simple but striking exterior.
“The design intention of Pink Moon was to create its own identity or vernacular; by designing and building in the way a hut should be.” Explained principal designer Matiya Marovich.
The Pink Moon is a great example of how overlooked urban spaces can be transformed into something unique and beautiful. Although the width of the site only spans about twelve feet in width, its nice and long, about 91 feet as measured from the street. There’s also a steep trussed roof that helps make the space feel nice and big.
Pink Moon Saloon’s bar is on side facing the street, while their eatery is found inside the backyard hut, with an open sunny courtyard bridging the two. Marovich decided to go for two separate structures to utilize as much natural light as the narrow space provides. Additionally, the separate areas adds to the experience of walking through the three different spaces, each with their own unique features.
