Two concepts in one at Tayēr + Elementary by Edit! Architects

Tayēr + Elementary brings two connected bars together within a single space, complementing each other without competing.

13/08/2020 2 min read

While locals in London are re-acclimatising to new ways of socialising, one bar in Shoreditch is yet to reopen. As the inaugural brainchild of world renowned and award-winning mixologists Alex Kratěna and Monica Berg, Tayēr + Elementary caused a stir when it opened last summer. The former Post Office site, located on the ground floor of a commercial unit on Old Street, “didn’t exactly fit the client’s dream vision” says Prague-based Edit! Architects – the design team behind the concept.

Tayēr + Elementary brings two connected bars together within a single space, complementing each other without competing. Each inhabits the industrial ‘chic’ aesthetic, left behind by the raw concrete shell of the existing structure, but is spun with its own personality and target clientele.

Front-facing Elementary, expressed with a large window that flushes the interior with natural daylight, offers a casual space for hot-desk workers to enjoy bottomless coffee and pre-mixed cocktails. Open all day, the simplicity of the interior space is comfortable and easy-going. A long, communal table in the centre is matched with a window-ledge perch that looks out onto the main road.

Hidden behind a concrete partition (crafted by Czech designer Maxim Velčovský), however, is its moodier, more intimate counterpart, Tayēr. With food from TA TA Eatery and the kinds of creative and bespoke cocktails you’d expect from two of the world’s leading bartenders, the U-shaped oak bar is an ideal location to spend an evening. With a minimalist intervention and wood-veneered furniture, the bar is an infusion of Scandinavian appeal with a playful accent encouraged by exposed ducting and green backsplash tiles.
