Night Club inspired by ice-caverns

A new project of a Spanish interior designer Elia Felices is called La Cova Night Club built in the city of Mataro near-by Barcelona. This night club has a surface of 500 square meters that house a cloak-room, box office, dance parquet, two bars, DJ board and of course a space for visitors. All rooms are part of one-storey rectangular room that allows to distribute clients in rational and intensive way.

The main idea was to create a space reminding an ice-cavern in the middle of a city. Everything has the style of an ice-cavern; decorations, lighting, shapes, colours etc. Two big lamps are hanging from the ceiling as two icicles for example. Other source of light are lamps shaped as stones emerging from the floor. The designer wanted to accentuate the simple design with a very variable lighting.

Colour lighting from a number of reflectors is a distinctive element of La Cova. The main entrance is lightened by a half-moon to gain attention of passing-bys. White box-offices are decorated with blue flower wall paintings.The dance parquet is literally bordered by two bars backlit by LED RGB lights that change colour.

Penthouse renovation

A successful renovation project of a rooftop penthouse by architect Robert Bailey situated in the city of Coal Harbour near Vancouver, Canada. The original apartment was completely demolished to the concrete support construction. The new interior design was inspired by Scandinavian style. The apartment of 360 square meters houses four bedrooms, each one with its own bathroom and four terraces, so that owners could personalize them. The new interior design has a minimum of decorative elements but thanks to a mixture of materials it was created an interesting, rich and cosy environment. Quality furniture was designed and made-to-measure for this project. The simply-shaped fire-place made from limestone is set in the living-room area as a center-piece. A solid walnut wood was used for flooring and wall-coverings.

ZeBar

The newly opened bar in Shanghai with its characteristic name ZeBar is definitely not one of the ordinary places. On the contrary – its picture will stuck to your mind after the first visit. The interior reminds us of an underground shelter, a cave or something similarly mysterious. The structure is composed of panels which look like ribs and limit the space. These ribs are not scattered randomly but in a certain rhythmical sequence just like the floor. Together with the architectural studio 3GATTI a Singapore director and ex-musician participated on the design. Just as music has no limits so does this place look without any limits thanks to the curves used. The architects had to work with an incredibly low budget. The form appears complex, but was actually very simple and born from the digital 3D modeling environments. An intriguing play of shadows and light to produce a striped effect resembling a zebra or space subdivided into slices was utilised. The interior was completed in only several months and opened on New Year`s Day.
