@ Transform Architecture, 2008
LOCATION: HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM
Completed at Transform Architecture; MZ Bar is a luxury cafe, come restaurant, come night club located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
The design takes the shell of a derelict colonial villa, maintaining its strength of character whilst introducing a refreshingly simple modern twist. Internally the street side café area reproduces a sense of the integral French colonial heritage, the restaurant area provides a sense of luxury and elegance whilst in line with Vietnamese tastes the high-end nightclub takes a traditional smoking room atmosphere and infuses an elaborate lighting scheme to provide the perfect setting for intimate musical performances.
This body of work was completed by Transform Architects. Working closely with the client, personal responsibilities were to develop a multi-functional scheme with a high spec interior and communicate the ideas in 3D and through schematic moodboards to the client.
