|Abstract:||Located in a Commercial area of Amsterdam, ONE Nightclub was spurred by the contrast between openness and tradition in Amsterdam. Playing on this theme, I came up with the idea to create a club with 2 skins, like the layers of the city itself. Through creating a transparent building, engulfed in a solid skin, I used this inspiration to create a nightclub which will be hidden yet exposed, much like the nightlife and values of the city. I also used a contrast in materials, metal and glass, to enforce this idea and create a juxtaposition in my building. Through working with the floor plans I have also used many voids in the building, intended to create a feeling of vulnerability and through creating a glass roof have attempted to create a space, which is Interesting, fun and exciting to be in. From looking at my reference images for inspiration, I decided I wanted to keep a simple shape and use colour, lines, simple shapes and illumination to create an interesting space. By creating two skins on a simple plan this is achieved and through the use of glass and a reflective roof, the building will illuminate itself from within the skin at night. I believe my building fits into the city, which is known for its youthful population and nightlife. Within my direct context, the building sits I an exposed position, making it a feature of the area, which is otherwise dominated by some residential housing, and commercial areas. Structurally my building uses a combination of inner load bearing walls and a truss system to support its self as well as a metal framework for the glass façade and roof. I have also combined aesthetics with function through using many columns both outside and inside the building to support the roofs of the building.|
