Task: Design, Design Development and Construction Document
Collaboration: Aroma, Zurich
The Mascotte is one of the oldest and most traditional clubs in Zürich. It also has amazing views of Zürich’s famous square, the Bellevue. Turning this historic city landmark into a feature of the nightclub was the starting point of our design.
First, we opened up the three main windows overlooking the Bellevue. Alongside them, we created an afternoon lounge where guests could enjoy the view while drinking tea – or something stronger. Flexible podiums and lightweight furniture meant the space could be easily transformed into a club at night. We also designed one of the longest bars in Switzerland. Beautiful to look at and a talking point for guests, this unique feature served a vital function: It meant a big crowd could be served faster.
