T SAKHI's portable nightclub transforms lebanese landmark into party destination

T SAKHI adds an additional layer on beirut‘s sporting club beach with the design of a mountable and dismountable structure, which can transform the coastal landmark into an open air nightclub in just a few hours. central to the design is a large floating ring that flashes different light patterns and colors according to the beat of the music.

the two lebanese-polish sister architects behind ‘fleeting hearts – decks on the beach’, tessa & tara sakhi, have used three portable structures to organize the space: the DJ booth, the dance floor and the 12-meter long bar, which faces the sea. at the entrance, thin, translucent panels create niches for intimate moments and prepare visitors for the exciting structure that follows. the ring, whose form is in dialogue with the ferris wheel located nearby, defines the center of the dancefloor and sets the mood with lights in various colors.
