Pm is a night club for music lovers situated on 500 sq.m.
Everybody that is interested in music remembers the ”sunday 8pm” album that the british group faithless released in 1998. In the Lead single maxi jazz sung: “god is a dj” which makes us want to add pm is a “music temple”. That inevitably led to our concept for The interior design.
At the entrance you are greeted by a composition of domes. Domes are distinctive elements in public and religious buildings Throughout the world going back in time to ancient persia. The dome has structural independence and also provides additional Space for the interior. In our project domes are used with some additional purposes namely to conceal the concrete beams on the Ceiling and to create “invisible ventilation”. The fact that we made the domes “transparent”, allowed us to use them as white “canvas” for a 1500 pixels state of the art ”light mural” above the guests.
In every temple there is an altar. In this case the altar is the dj booth. We intentionally strengthened the architectural perspective To put an accent on the dj. The main bar is situated in the middle which helped us to further develop zones in the club and create The so called “forced movement” around it. Near the entrance we looked for constriction of space that is immediately “released” Towards the scene evoking the laws of fluid dynamics in physics. This solution directs people inside towards the scene and Eliminates crowding in the most neuralgic point – the entrance.
The whole interior was designed black and bathed in light. All the equipment and furniture are custom designed by us to create the whole unique identity of the club. A quality that makes it one of our consecutive successful projects.
