Philip Koether Architects winner of 2012 Antron Design Award

At a special gala ceremony held at The Resort at Pelican Hill® in Newport Coast, Calif, the Antron® Design Awards were awarded on April 22nd, 2012.

Hospitality Category Winner:  Philip Koether Architects for Bar Basque

Bar Basque, which occupies 20,000 square feet on the second floor of a new 54 story mixed use project in New York City, features the robust color scheme of red and black, accented by reflective metal and glass architectural elements.  The lounge and bar area incorporates subtle allusion to the Basque region while incorporating high-tech programmatic features.  Both the private dining area and bar itself feature art installations referencing the famed Bilbao Tree in full bloom.  Public areas are enveloped in Infiniti Red opaque and translucent wall panels illuminated to glow from within and soften the intense color scheme.  Black architectural elements, details and furnishings were utilized to contrast with the custom red color at all light levels.  Recipients: Philip Koether, Jerome Burgos, Syd Mead.
