Convert and renovate a historic building into a VIP experience nightclub and bar. Due to the limitations of interior renovation because of the historical significance of the building, the art of light and color was used to drape the space and add the visual aesthetics needed.
Light and color as an art form can transform any space from the normal to the unexpected. The goal was to preserve the historic interior, but drape the space in various tones using color changing LED lighting. This direction integrated LED controller technology to give the nightclub the ability for the lighting to be integrated into the music and event.
Collaboration was key to get the correct effect within the space. LED lighting mock-ups were created before construction to test how the color and lighting would play off of materials. Materials such as metallic tile, patterned wall coverings with metallic accents, and textured materials came to life as the color and lighting interacted with each material.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
