Studio Modijefsky has unveiled its design for Arie op de Hoek, a new F&B concept housed within a structure from 1876 in the De Pijp section of Amsterdam. The quaint café is the sister concept to nearby bistro Bonnie, which Studio Modijefsky completed last year.

Conceived as a modern “brown café,” Arie evokes a refined materiality that infuses a sense of history. “The ‘old brown bars’ (in Dutch: bruin café) are classic spots in the city, well-known to locals and part of the Amsterdam characteristic atmosphere,” says Studio Modijefsky founder Esther Stam. “We wanted to give the guests a feeling of a bar that has been there for a while already, and at the same time had this fresh kick.”

Darkened beech anchors much of the interior along with copper, terrazzo, tiled, and fabric elements. Neon lighting stretches across the glossy, dark blue tiled ceiling, illuminating traditional Dutch terrazzo floors. Hues of yellow and red adorn the ceiling as well as the bar, which serves as the nucleus of the concept. A brass footrail handsomely contrasts the aged copper and red marble of the bar face as well. The bar also acts as a bridge between high-top seating at the front of the house and a lounge-like area in the rear.
