FLEETING HEARTS

DECKS on the BEACH Nightclub

This landmark by the sea acquires an additional layer on Friday nights: a mountable and dismountable structure in a few hours which transforms the space into an open air summer nightclub. Three main structures organise the space: the dj booth, the dance floor and the 12 m long the bar facing the sea.

Translucent panels with thin slits longs the entire entrance as you walk through and creates little niches for intimate moments while discovering the exiting structure. A glimpse of the back of the DJ booth faces the visitors as they encircle its curved wall to discover the space. The beating heart of the space is therefore revealed: the central floating ring, a playing light structure connected to the music's pulse. It is in dialogue with the ferris wheel in its surrounding background.
