For Vienna’s fashionable Mochi bar, cp archtektur designed a small annex at the Vienna farmers market, the Mochi Ramen Bar, specialising in Japanese ramen soup.


As Mochi Ramen unites two market stands in a single area crossing a market row, our idea was to create an area reflected along its axis which appears identical from either side. This gives access from two sides, offering two gardens in the hot seasons.


In winter Mochi Ramen looks rather closed off at first glance, with two roller garage doors as walls. However, the small window openings with small double Plexiglas glazing allow the warm light of the bar to show outside, conveying cosy conviviality and arousing curiosity. In the interior the gateway walls emphasise the idea of an improvised bar on a former market stand.


Entry in winter is through a flush door of flamed wooden boards, with a rope knot as handle.


In the interior there are two sitting areas, a conversational bar with a view into the open kitchen and swivelling tables with seats along the long wall.


The materials used suggest traditional craft work but are newly interpreted. The bar is made from Viennese laburnum beams, lighting is an extension of the ceramic crockery specially designed for Mochi. The seat backs are made of woven banana leaf fibres. Unique in its design, Mochi Ramen nevertheless evokes associations with the parent house on the Prater.
