A new nightclub is born
In search of an unusual location for a nightclub, a developer had the idea of reviving a former pedestrian subway on Vienna's Ring. This subway from the early sixties, lined with empty shops, is the Babenberger Passage. In 2003 it opened its doors as a club for the first time and was to become a popular nightclub of the Viennese party scene in the following years.

You can still see them from the street, the four glass exits. In the course of the conversion, three of them were transformed into lighting fixtures made of large opaque light cylinders. - Only one of the access stairs leads down to the underground club.
Geometry of celebration
Circles, squares and triangles in bright colours are dancing in the light. Three red bars structure the space. Along the walls, upholstered separees with leather seating cuboids lead to the lounge areas. Tiled circles on the floor reflect the disco balls. In this design, the purist formal language serves as a powerful statement.
