DECKS on the BEACH Nightclub
This landmark by the sea acquires an additional layer on Friday nights: an ephemeral structure, mountable and dismountable in a few hours, and transformed into an open-air summer nightclub. Three main structures organise the space: the dj booth, the dance floor and the 12 m bar facing the sea.
Translucent panels with thin slits longs the entire entrance and creates little niches for intimate moments. The visitors walk around the DJ booth’s curved panels to discover the beating heart of the space: the central floating ring, a playing light structure connected to the music’s pulse. It is in dialogue with the ferris wheel in the surrounding background. The space focuses on the notion of unity in diversity, inspiring a feeling of oneness & blend of the people to create “one” social space.
