Ampere B-bis architecten Everyone loves a good rave under the train tracks, and B-bis architecten has given Antwerp a permanent place for that concept by converting a large area beneath a railway viaduct into a creative event venue – which has already hosted techno luminaries such as Marcel Dettmann and Nina Kraviz. With a commitment to ‘responsible and educative going out’, Ampere promotes a safe and sustainable space for nightlife in addition to serving as a cultural centre during the daytime. The design is distinguished primarily by a striking, orthogonal pattern along the walls and floors, comprising strong yellow, intersecting lines that enclose solid black and raw concrete panels with mirrors and windows to create a complex and phantasmal social theatre. Everywhere it appears, this zigzagging play of triangles, parallelograms and rectangles is oriented along the diagonals of the existing framework. The plan is centred around a 700 m2 multipurpose room, with two flanking upper galleries that house a cloak room and smokers’ lounge and frees the dance floor of obstructions, thus creating a flexible layout. A cafe, workshop area and moveable walls for the grand room are still forthcoming. The ground floor level largely utilises the existing concrete core, while all new floors consist of wood recovered from truck flooring.



Industrial metallic beams and steel supports have been painted in coordinating colours. Graphic designer Tom Tosseyn conceptualised the orthogonal pattern for the walls. OPPOSITE

Bar Botanique Studio Modijefsky A walk through the ever-developing east side of Amsterdam has gotten a little bit greener thanks to a lush design by Studio Modijefsky. Commissioned by the team behind popular nearby hangouts Bar Bukowski and Bar Basquait, the studio was presented with a corner site with structural features including high ceiling, double-height windows and a split-level floor plan. Responding to its ample volume and light, the design team developed a concept to transform the space into a lush, plant filled, Art Deco era haven. Generous helpings of palms, philodendron, ferns and monestra decorate a vivid interior of mint green and apricot. Strategically-placed lamps allow light to shine through the foliage, casting an exotic motif on surfaces. As the sun goes down, the shadows become more defined – the foliage giving life to the space in more ways than one. Completing the design, a custom typeface was developed and applied to menus and the bar’s identity, spelling out the venue’s name on the facade with letters arranged in each window with striking effect. The strong, rounded forms are reflected in the painted metalwork of the interior, with geometric forms creating bespoke mirror fixtures, hanging planters and arched storage racks rising over the bar.

Beam Pentagram Bangkok’s upscale, open-plan mall 72 Courtyard may have already possessed a hectic, urban flux but nowhere could this energy be released in dance until the arrival of Beam. Distinguishing itself as a nightclub proper from the ‘discos’ that dominate Thailand’s nightlife, Pentagram has designed a venue that takes after London’s legendary Fabric, collaborating with local firms VaSLab Architecture, MostTechnical (for sound and lighting) and Immersive (for projection and AV). The club comprises two levels, a lounge bar and a dance floor, both accessed by enclosed stairwells that lend the entrance a sense of sudden, revelatory immersion. Seamlessly integrating an aesthetic that matches the locality, the interior envelope employs raw, shuttered concrete offset by wooden floors and seating, as well as refined hints of marble and bronze. The lower lounge area is a relaxed space, offering a tranquil retreat from both the pulsating music upstairs and the crowds outside. Sumptuous, tufted leather seating faces a steel-framed grid of backlit, frosted glass to create a subdued, sensual ambience. On the upper level, a double-height volume elicits the dramatic scale of a cathedral. The concrete shell here protrudes outward, fluidly forming the bar and seating alcoves that support futuristic hanging tables. Stretching above these elements, the flat upper portions of the walls become a singular, enfolding projection screen.

Canada Olympic House Yabu Pushelberg For the design of Canada Olympic House at the 2016 Rio Games, Yabu Pushelberg was assigned 2 weeks to set-up in an aquatic centre on a very limited budget. The end result conveys a vibrant and distinctly Canadian identity through the innovative use of humble materials. A tall, red hoarding gate spelling out the country’s name in white recedes back from the street to the entrance, ushering guests inside to the bar area and various lounges. The interior continues this colour scheme, with white vinyl floors and a red spiral staircase. A mobile by Moss & Lam Art Studios consisting of plain wood canoe paddles painted in a chromatic gradient is suspended from the ceiling of the welcome hall, while the iconic stripes of Canadian retail giant Hudson’s Bay Company line the walls. The Celebration Lounge is the next area to catch the eye, with its own ceiling installation – a deconstructed Canadian flag made of canvas drop cloths. Rearrangeable modular furniture fosters interaction conducive to camaraderie, and a simple plywood bar serves the country’s staple Molson beer. The Deloitte Athletes Lounge, on the other hand, allows the VIPs a quiet hideaway from the revelry, sporting a bold dado line that splits the room into its more monochromatic colour scheme.

Sensitive Star Estudio Guto Requena In the Brazilian summer of 2016, Heineken took over the rooftop Sao Paulo’s tallest building, Mirante do Vale, and commissioned Estudio Guto Requena to transform the site into a pop-up bar, open-air dance floor and interactive installation space. From the sky-high vantage point of this location, the illuminating project provided residents and visitors alike with a new perspective of the city, as well as its vibrancy and vastness. On an entire upper-level of the tower block, the designers carved out a bar that was deckedout with studio’s own Mirante furniture collection. The MDF panels were used to shape the furnishings with a Brutalist aesthetic to fit in with the raw concrete lines of the space. At night the green strip-lighting bathes the bar area in a distinctive green glow, completing the brand’s manifestation into the physical world. The crowning glory of this project was Sensitive Star, a parametric design installation set-up on the helipad on the 170-m-tall building. Through the use of sensors, the interactive starshaped structure emitted light and sounds in reaction to the movement of people through the space. For its soundscapes, Requena recorded sounds of the city such as street markets, traffic and a nearby monastery.

SHOT Wilson Holloway For a cafe that injects vitality, there is not a straight-edge surface at SHOT. This eatery, designed by Wilson Holloway, instead offers customers curved contours to help them mellow whilst sipping their morning matcha. More than a just juice bar, the venue’s name literally defines its menu – simple, healthy, organic and tasty. To add a twist, the client called for an experimental approach to make a statement whilst defining the location’s small footprint. Enter the designers, with lab-coats donned, to conjure up a clinical disguise. ‘Our initial inspiration came from the idea of the laboratory as a place of learning, discovery and experimentation,’ comments Alex Holloway. The aim was to create an intricate interior that reflects the scientific approach the SHOT team puts into recipe development. The use of bespoke curved ceramics to create a continuous tiled space was as much functional as it was playful – with smooth surfaces and gentle curves morphing into integrated containers on the walls. Against the white backdrop, brand colours are picked out in the furnishings to add a bright edge. There’s also the glow from the eye-catching neon sign, akin to the healthy radiance that customers may leave with after having their fill.

The Gallery at Sketch India Mahdavi The Gallery at London’s Sketch cultural institute first opened in 2002 as an artist-conceived restaurant to showcase the works of British artists. Over a decade later, the owners of the Michelinstarred venue commissioned India Mahdavi for an update to showcase works of David Shrigley. Taking one look at Shrigley’s drawings and the interior – a ballroom in a converted eighteenthcentury building – she apparently said, ‘The space shall be pink.’ The overwhelming presence of the lush, effulgent hue makes a humourous contrast to the abrasive, irreverent sketches on display. Copper finishes serve as the other principal element, gracing frames and supports for furniture, as well as lamps on each table and the surfaces of the bar, and culminating in a veneer over the panels of the dome window. Along with the existing crown moulding and a zig-zag marble floor from Martin Creed’s previous installation, these features exude a garish and excessive decadence, yet in which one cannot help but indulge. At the same time, against this elegant material palette, the designer’s puffy chairs and geometric serving carts add a playful surrealism to the space. Coupled with vintage-looking lamps mounted on the walls and interspersed throughout the room, they make the venue an uncanny hybrid between a traditional brasserie and a fantastical candy land.

Generator DesignAgency Boutique hostel group Generator comes to Amsterdam with its most ambitious location yet: a converted, century-old health sciences and zoological complex next to Oosterpark. Headed by Toronto-based DesignAgency in partnership with numerous Dutch artists and designers, the intervention creates a contemporary dialogue with many of the building’s existing features to offer a unique hospitality experience that encourages both social interaction and cultural reflection. Interior elements such as the brickwork, stained glass windows, marble staircases and terrazzo floors have been restored in collaboration with local architecture firm Idea Ontwerp. A distinctive feature comprises hundreds of light fixtures salvaged by Blom & Blom from abandoned factories in Eastern Europe. Surreal, carnival-esque murals have been added to the walls as a bold assertion of visual identity – the collective effort of a team coordinated by Amsterdam’s The Bright Side Gallery, in addition to others. One of the most striking aspects of the renovation is the repurposing of a lecture hall as a bar. Drinks are now served from the lectern, with the menu gracing the chalkboard behind. The original raked seating – together with three lounges extending from a galvanised, multi-tiered steel frame – form a kind of grand social theatre, a place equally conducive to movement and observation.

Hotel Adriatic Studio 3LHD First constructed in 1913, the structure housing the latest incarnation of the Hotel Adriatic stands as the last remaining hospitality venue in the historic urban centre of Rovinj, perched on a corner looking out onto a marina. While the exterior has been reconstructed in its original, rhythmic classical form, Zagreb’s Studio 3LHD – collaborating with Franjic Sekoranja – had a far more unconventional vision for its interior, emphasising relevance to its present context while still reminiscing on its heritage. The hotel hosts an extensive collection of site-specific art from local and international creatives, curated by Vanja Zanko and drawing on both the history of the building and its surroundings. Predominantly black surfaces form a backdrop for dynamic light installations in the hallways. Most notably, a piece by Austrian artist Valentin Ruhry stretches up the main staircase, the only existing element preserved in the interior. The bar area features a serene, Mediterranean chromatic and textural palette, with white marble countertops and deep teal and myrtle accents. The light tones and generous floor plans of the guest rooms create a refreshing sense of emergence from the dark corridors. Herringbone parquet flooring and wood panelling on the walls suggest an artist’s studio, while the extensive use of mirrors enhances the complexity of the space.

Fluorescent tubes on the wall link materially with the chandelier, while adding a burst of colour to otherwise neutral tones.

The Loft is a multipurpose venue occupying two upper floors of Amsterdam’s recently-completed A’dam Tower along the northern bank of the IJ. Billed as ‘a party pad where you could sleep over’, the interior – designed by Tank – can be rented for an hour or for an overnight stay, and offers luxurious hospitality services while accommodating a variety of social functions. Guests enter into a double-height lobby/ living room enclosed by rich, herringbone parquet flooring and contrasting, exposed concrete walls and ceilings. Predominant glazing along the south wall offers sublime views of the cityscape. A bespoke chandelier made of suspended fluorescent tubes enhances the verticality of the volume. Antique shutters lead guests through the remaining rooms of the main floor, which include a large kitchen, smoking room and record library. Ascending one of Tank’s two custom-designed staircases, an upper floor offers master and guest bedrooms, as well as a Press Room. The master suite features a playful reference to The Loft’s unusual meshing of functions, where a portion of the ceiling can be lowered onto the bathtub to become a marble tabletop, adding to the adaptability of the space. Next door, the Press Room also doubles-up as a cocktail bar.
