Bart Hagevoort

Bart Hagevoort is an interior designer at Heineken. He designed the bar-lounge Le Coin at the Teaching Hotel.

The idea behind this was that the authentic ceiling gives the available space an effect of width, which would be split in two lengthways. The focus would be on the students working behind the bar, so that they would appear to be working on a ‘stage’. The seating height for customers at the bar is slightly lower so that they become an audience. Working together with lighting designer Etienne Bindels, Bart created a lighting plan that produces the right atmosphere both in daylight or artificial light. The lighting is perfect for guests coming for breakfast/lunch and a drink during the day or for creating a club atmosphere for the restaurant and hotel guests in the evening.
