THE STORY

Bar K is a facility built to foster community for dogs and dog lovers alike. Located in Berkley Riverfront Park, a strip of land along the Missouri River undergoing a renaissance of residential development, Bar-K is a destination for Kansas City’s newest residents and their furry companions. Taking advantage of “found” space under the Heart of America Bridge, Bar-K breathes new life into a derelict site by providing the ultimate backyard experience. The expansive park is complete with a restaurant, bar, coffee shop, beer garden, live entertainment, rooftop patio and 2-acre dog park. Referencing the industrial nature of the surrounding site (bordered by road, river and rail) this project is fabricated from an industrial building block – the shipping container. By creatively stacking 14 recycled high cube containers, the result carefully balances its raw industrial appearance with its welcoming and playful interior experience. The stacked containers create a unique double height food hall with lots of natural daylight, connecting to a beer garden, 2nd floor container lounge and open-air roof deck that provides great views to the surrounding dog park and to the skyline beyond.
