OKAH Restaurant & Rooftop

MC-A‘s design for OKAH restaurant and rooftop bar offers 360 degree views of Lisbon’s Tagus River and city center.

  • area / size 6,996 sqft
  • Year 2018
  • Location Lisbon, Portugal,
  • Located in the city center of Lisbon, Portugal, but only 50meters from the Tagus River the OKAH rooftop is inserted in an unexplored ancient port area. The challenge presented consisted in creating a rooftop that matched the LACS building essence – a modern and creative hub that combines an artistic soul and a cultural stronghold where forward-thinking creative businesses go to thrive.

    In order to immerse in the landscape language MC-A designed, created and supervised the installation process of 16 modified maritime containers. The project encompasses a 100 seats restaurant, 50 seats lounge with 2 themed bars and a 200 people concerts area which, alternatively, may be used as an art exhibition venue. This with a 360º degrees privileged view over the magnificent Tagus River, the mesmerizing Lisbon and the booming Almada cities.

    Like all MC-A projects and in-depth study of the client needs, the purpose and the location resulted not only in the materials chosen (maritime containers, wood, steel beams frame and glass), but also in the color pantone, the lightning and ultimately the layout.
