XYZ休息室是一个具有交汇性的场所。作为Zebrastraat会议厅的集会和交流中心,XYZ对当代的人际交往提出了新的探讨。在社会身份和性别认同皆成为话题的今天,如何建立一个中立且符合情感需要的、同时不具有明显社会性和身份标志的场所?

The XYZ Lounge is a place of intersection and transversality. As central point of meeting and exchange for the users of the Zebrastraat conference hall, it questions the notions of friendliness and physicality of today. At a time where social, sexual, gender identities are challenged, how to offer a place which is both neutral and sensual, a place which is neither a social marker, nor a space of identity?

▼XYZ休息室是为新型的交往形式而打造的空间,the XYZ Lounge has been thought as a space for a new form of physicality and identity

XYZ休息室是为新型的交往形式而打造的空间,它鼓励一种暂时性的融合与交互。这是一个相对独立的、能够促进人们身心接触的空间。位于休息室中庭的酒吧同时作为连接元素和分隔元素,承载着人们的聚集和来往。干净的大理石、灰泥和布料将空间分割为不同的部分,营造出一种能够吸引和刺激肉体感官的氛围。它以一种假设性的二元论,在呈现科幻小说式浪漫主义的同时又将我们引向别处,使熟悉与未知的事物同时出现。

The XYZ Lounge has been thought as a space / Interstice for a new form of physicality and identity, a space of convergence and interaction with a suspended temporality. It is a contained void, nurturing physical trajectories and erotism, at the center of which the bar unfolds, as a connecting and disconnecting element, an anchor where moving beings gather and spread. The marble, the stucco and the fabric, clean materials, stages the encounters of this space in-between and shape an envelope which tones appeal to the sensuality of the flesh. The XYZ Lounge, in an assumed duality, both refers to a science-fictional romanticism and propel us in elsewhere all at once familiar and unknown.

这个面积为360平方米的空间旨在重新定义公共场所的功能和容量:将入口、中央酒吧、侧室以及位于夹层的会议室容纳在统一体量之中。定制的预制钢结构定义出了新的空间,并为墙壁和天花板提供了支撑:模块化的灰泥内衬、大理石嵌板、覆盖以布料的天花板、发光的墙面以及木制的包层等等。从入口处开始,休息室逐渐延伸为三个区域:位于左侧、安装有投影屏幕的自由空间,可用于举办鸡尾酒和DJ派对;与之相邻的中庭酒吧;以及位于右侧的小型自由空间,可直接通往露台。

The mission for this 360 m2 space aimed to redefine the uses and the volumes of the public spaces: entrance, nave-bar, side rooms and layout of the conference / meeting rooms on the mezzanine. A custom prefabricated steel frame imposes a new framework to the spaces and supports the attached walls and ceilings: moulded stucco lining, marble panels, textile ceilings, lightnings surfaces and wood cladding. The lounge unfolds from the entrance into three spans: a free space on the left for cocktail and DJ parties including a projection screen, an adjoining bar below the central nave and a smaller free space on the right giving access to the terrace.

定制的家具包括大理石材质的内置家具(吧台、操作台和顶灯)、餐桌及高脚凳(采用喷漆钢管、大理石托盘和皮革椅面)和一系列聚丙烯材质的滚塑座椅。

The furniture, designed on purpose, consists of fixes elements made in marble (counter, islands and ceiling lights), high tables and stools (lacquered steel tubes, marble trays and leather seats) and a series of rotomoulded chairs in polypropylene.
