Following their celebrated designs for Beefbar locations around the world including Paris, Hong Kong, Monaco, Dubai, and Mykonos – Humbert & Poyet’s newest design is Beefbar on the Beach in St Paul’s Bay, Malta.
As the first beach club concept for the Beefbar brand, Humbert & Poyet drew inspiration from the sea, the island’s natural stone, and local craftsmanship, in order to create a space that echoes the essence of Malta.
Humbert & Poyet chose a warm color spectrum with an emphasis on soft earthy tones. Occasional pops of bright canary yellow, tangerine orange, emerald green, and touches of black bring the space to life.
An abundance of natural and raw materials – rattan, ceramic, plaster, and concrete – are used to decorate the interior. For the furniture, Humbert & Poyet opted for fine-textured fabric, with playful stripes and patterns.
The space was created to be expansive and open, highlighting the sea line and the cascading rocks. Lush decorative vegetation is prominent throughout this project: the entrance, the lounge, the restaurant, the terrace, and the pool.
Almost all the elements of Beefbar on the Beach have been conceptualized just for this space, placing an emphasis on the craftsmanship.
The emerald green ceramic tile tables situated in the restaurant are paired with custom benches and cord chairs. The benches are wooden with rattan and crimson-colored fabric. The space extends to an outside terrace with a pergola, from which handmade ceramic suspensions in terracotta are strung.
The lounge space is designed to create a feeling of home, with large sofas, bespoke tiled tables, and ceiling fans, as well as ceramic and paper maché suspensions. Special attention is given to hand-made ceramics that decorate large library shelves behind the lounge bar. The lounge bar itself is striking in its design, adorned with a black and white tiled pattern.
The pool overlooks the sea, lined with gazebos and sunbeds in yellow and navy-blue stripes. The result is both a vibrant and refined design that reflects the quality of the restaurant, the lounge, and the natural environment of Malta.
As the first Beefbar on the Beach concept, Humbert & Poyet has created a space that is inviting, elegant, and festive. Guests can dine, lounge, swim, and enjoy live music during the day and throughout the night.
