the kufra hall is a multifunctional space inside the oasi di kufra hotel in sabaudia, italy. architecture studio colli daniela architetto has designed the circular area, which offers glimpses to the beach and views of mount circeo. the program of the space dictates the attention to be framed internally rather than to the outside and the dynamic interior captivates the participants’ interest. primarily, the structure is made of partition walls, pillars, and an expressive coffered raw concrete ceiling. the conference center is adaptable and is appropriate for either hosting a meeting or a party. access to the geometric space is filtered through an ambiance of different lighting by luceplan. the sunken arena feels astrological with a glowing moon-like covering that hovers over black flooring. the large illuminated crown is formed with sinuous rhombus shaped ribbons with a 700 m long strip of color changing LED lights, and acts additionally as a sound diffusion.
