Design: Naço Architectures

Naço Architectures recently re-designed the new Bar Rouge, one of Shanghai’s most legendary nightspots.

“Two nights in one” was the inspirational mantra of designers – enabling party-goers to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere in the early evening and a high energy club environment after 11pm.

Naço Architectures has therefore transformed Bar Rouge by opening its
interior, making it more elegant and enjoyable as a whole.

Designers conceived the new space to glitter like a jewelry box. The bar at the heart of the room is located beneath a red structure and invokes the image of a sparkling ruby when illuminated. The luminous, red netted structure is draped from the ceiling, walls and hangs above VIP areas.

The DJ booth, with its faceted angles, recalls the shape and luminosity of a precious gem. Around the main bar, new VIP sections partition the

space, the triumph of these being the Crystal VIP Room. This dazzling all-white exclusive space overlooks the whole bar, enabling VIPs to relax and watch the lounge transform into a night club as the night rolls on.

A glass partition has been created between the interior and terrace to look as though it’s fading away, as if by magic. The terrace utilizes a colour scheme of black and gold to create an elegant party atmosphere.

Here, Naço Architectures again gives the bar a central position, allowing energies to circulate, like a rock in fusion. On Bar Rouge’s terrace, whether seated in a comfy armchair, dancing the night away, or curled up in the Crystal VIP room, one will find himself in the epicenter of modern Shanghai, where the sky and the lights of Pudong mingle magically.
