Here’s one of the most eye-catching architectural concepts in club design we’ve ever come across. Bureau A, a Swiss design firm launched in 2012 by architects Leopold Banchini and Daniel Zamarbide, have created a modular club for the Lisbon Architecture Triennale. It hosts around 25 people for an intimate clubbing experience. Known simply as The Club, the pop-up installation served as the nightlife destination for five late-night DJ parties taking place in differing locations at the Lisbon Architecture Triennale, which concludes on December 12.
Unlike traditional clubs that have static designs that are costly to alter, the club’s modular ethos is completely customizable and mobile. Bureau A’s design has all of the elements found in an average nightclub — a DJ booth, speakers, bar, dance floor and entrance area — and it can be arranged in a myriad of ways to suit the mood of the party.
This isn’t the first time Bureau A have worked on a mobile club. Earlier this year they presented Shelter, an inflatable pop-up club made out of black PVC membrane. We can’t wait to see what the club-focused Geneva-based architectural duo come up with next.
