Nisha Bar, Mexico City, Mexico

Posted by ewanvfe on 27/03/2008

Pascal Arquitectos have recently completed the new luxurious ‘Nisha’ bar in Mexico City
The project comes up from the intention of creating an entertainment space for adults of 30 years old and over. The development houses a lounge and a restaurant-bar area connected by a lobby. In contrast to the lobby which is predominantly in dark tones, the “terrazzo” floor is illuminated by psychedelic images displayed over eight plasma screens.
The lounge walls are completely covered in wood and surrounded by large windows overlooking a forest; within this space there are several small sets of living rooms, each one with a plasma screen which recreates images simulating a fireplace, a fish tank or a landscape.The restaurant-bar is surrounded by crystal walls that changes color in along with the music and the videos. This section also displays a 15 meter long bar. above and across the entire back wall of the bar customers can enjoy a huge 15 by 3 meters height hi-res video screen submerging them into a virtual world: for weather it be watching Earth from outer space, flying through the clouds, exploring a tropical forest or swimming surrounded by sharks which is all amplified with specialist hi-fi sound equipment.
The restrooms were designed as if they were part of the recreational spaces decorating them with a service bar and a cozy sofa. The use and the color mix in every space of the site is designed to generate visual delight complemented by the music, the videos and the social atmosphere.
