The Canadian multidisciplinary design team from Humà design created a unique space for the Mile public house pub. The 3600 square feet space takes viewers on a journey, introducing them to the story of the building through the stunning graphics that so boldly shape the interior.
There was a wide field where stood 3 tall trees. It became the gathering of a community of young promising kids. The code name was the ¼ mile being at a ¼ mile distance from their houses. 20 years later, the trees were cut down. Before cutting the third one, our client decided to rent the space to be constructed, in the location of the third tree, in the middle of the 10/30 Phase 2 development.
Humà design takes us on a journey about friendship, using the tree as the guiding principle for the design. The story presents itself from the exterior of the building. A simple, yet evocative wooden door framed by a tree in typography, designed by Humà, is the first introduction to Mile public house. Inside, custom drawings developed by Humà and printed on plywood boards warm the space.
The idea of a pub is revealed by the slightly secret entry, typical of these spaces, the terrace with wide doors and inside, the ‘’snug’’, place that used to be dedicated only to women.
The main space features a 48 foot long bar in a wide open area, as well as semi private areas that encourage sharing and meetings. The design team took great effort in integrating the symbolism of the tree, not only through graphics, but also through recycling its wood as the counter top of the bar.
The custom made graphics are seamlessly introduced throughout the space without overwhelming it, creating a warm and inviting space that’s willing to share its story.
