2100 club, the world’s first blockchain bar, is located in the center of the vernacular area of xixi wetland, hangzhou. designed by LYCS architecture, the bar is a social platform that shares and exchanges the cutting edge blockchain technologies, researches, and investments. at the same time, it is committed to creating a gathering place for talents to share ideas about the latest internet technology, industry integration, and entrepreneurship.

in order to unify the overall atmosphere of the surrounding environment, a large number of buildings have restored the original appearance of the building, retaining and utilizing the relationship between building blocks and the existing roof structure. after the selective removal of the original wall, a brand-new space that is full of visual tension has been created. the sculptural ‘black box’ at the entrance to the bar, connects to the interior and the exterior. it is not only a directional sculpture but also conveys the design idea which is combing and contrasting old and new, past time and present days.

the bar lounge area to create a space for guests to communicate in a dynamic space — the modern interior decoration highly contrasts with the antique buildings. the digitally designed brass three-dimensional grid structure runs through the room and connects the various spaces of the bar together. the extended bar, the curvilinear suspended ceiling, and the starry light create different visual sensations and guide people to explore each corner one by one.

LYCS architecture’s design for 2100 club deliberately reduced selection of the typical furniture and finishes that used in a theme bar. only in the transition point of the space was equipped with the furniture and finishes that related to the blockchain.

the hallway is covered with black stainless steel and the hidden light strips spaced from the ground to the top surface brightening the space. the strong contrast between black and light creates a virtual futuristic sense, stretching the narrow hallway horizontally and creating inward guidelines. the staircase that leads people to the second floor, which is made of a copper-colored stainless steel façade and a warm wood-colored ladder, is just right to warm up the space.

the overall space on the second floor is relatively more private and introduces the natural light into the space creating a more intimate and warm atmosphere. in order to guarantee the privacy, the designer maximized the opening of the windows on the two sides of the sloping roof. when sunlight is poured into the room, the greenery outside of the window was fully collected.
