SLA Amstelveenseweg – a Salad Bar by Standard Studio



Within SLA, the ritual of making the salad is the central element of the store. When you choose a salad from the menu or compose it yourself: it is always freshly prepared in front of you. After that, you can then take it to one of the several seating arrangements in the bar where you can enjoy your salad.woutervandersar 18.022800 01 1024x683 SLA Amstelveenseweg – a Salad Bar by Standard Studiowoutervandersar 18.022800 02 1024x658 SLA Amstelveenseweg – a Salad Bar by Standard Studio

SLA salad bars are always at the central spots within a city. SLA behaves as a place where you can relax while enjoying a salad. For a moment you can escape from the hectic pace of the vibrant city.

The spatial concept of the salad bar is a spatial work of wooden fins that not only defines the place and shape of the counter but also organizes the entire space. It creates a spatial framework within which a large variety of seating elements finds it’s a place. By clearly defining these places, architects created areas for quick sitting moments, intimate seating moments as two-person booths, benches where you can easily slide in, a communal table and four-person tables. The framework creates many spontaneous views when you are standing and at the same time provides intimacy while seated. The design incorporates some individual elements from previous locations such as the use of plants and moss and the design of the table tops.

SLA Amstelveenseweg is also unique because it houses a show kitchen which is conceived to serve as a laboratory for the creation of future recipes but also to be able to rent out for cooking workshops. You can quickly close this space through 4 large pivot doors.
