Appreciation towards Daylab Studio for providing the following description:

渣club 位于义乌,是由五个年轻人合伙开设的夜店。有意思的是,相比于夜店的主营空间,我们和这五个年轻人都认为如何吸引顾客体验进店乐趣其实是更值得探讨的问题,换句话说,我们把主要的设计精力放在了交通空间上,创造出一种持续空间体验。

The Z CLUB in Yiwu is a nightclub set up by five young people. Interestingly, compared to the main space of the nightclub, we and these five young guys think that how to attract customers to experience the fun of entering the store is actually a more worthy question. In other words, we turned our main design focus on the circulation space to create a continued experience for the customers.

The Z CLUB is positioned to explore the two sides of human nature. The usual gentleman can also show its wild side. We think that as customers enter to the space in different ways, we have the opportunity to demonstrate this change. It happened that the location of this small independent house was on the boundary of the park, and the front and back faces showed completely different atmosphere. And both directions can become the entrance to the flow of people.

The A side of the building is the main entrance. A speakeasy suit shop is set up here, and a revolving door is installed behind the dressing room. Through entering, customers could have an inverting experience from “gentleman” to “dressed beast”.

The B side of the building is an open-air parking lot with a sense of decadence. The façade of the building is dilapidated, and a lot of waste materials are discarded from time to time. We think this is a good opportunity to create contrast, so an ultra-modern lighting installation door suddenly appeared in the middle of the broken wall, creating a jumping experience of time and space.

The inside of the Z CLUB is not only equipped with an oversized ceiling led screen, the leading stage on the middle step, or the staircase behind the DJ stage has continued the entire space experience with lighting installations, echoing this complete role transition concept.
