An industrial space turned dance club, with its hangar reimagined as an interactive light installation. Featuring a futuristic and cozy atmosphere, it includes gardens that use warm Brazilian materials.
The club has two dance floors with an area for shows, three bars, a VIP area, dressing room, restrooms, kitchen, manage office, and cashiers that control entries and exits.
The DJ area can transform itself into a show stage. Six mobile VIP areas slide under a rotation, and the dance floor rearranges, according to the necessities of the mood of the night. Two bars are in this area, beside a staircase that leads to the upper floor, which consists of a VIP area and a dressing room.
The outside dance floor and bar has a retractable roof, an open sky back patio, with green areas and gardens, ideal for small shows, sunset parties and drinks.
The inner dance floor is an interactive LED cage, responding to several sensors in the space. The DJ can control the light effects with his own dance motions, through a body sensor. Above the dance floor, another sensor is responding to temperature and movement of the dancing below, transforming this information into lighting effects. It’s a dance floor that reacts to the guests’ stimulation, working as an extension of their own bodies.

[ manifesto ]
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.
