Nayra Iglesias principal of Spanish architectural practice In Out Studio was commissioned to redesign the Fortuni Club. Completed in 2012, the cosy nightclub can be found near the port of Las Palmas, on the island of Gran Canaria.
According to the designers: “It was an ambitious commercial project. The brief was clear, make the 600m2 space into a music cult club with two distinct environments one with the lighting design and the other where the DJ plays.
“The ground floor or main hall of the luxury nightclub is a three-storey height space dominated by an elegant suspended music cabin. Long aluminum curtains adorned with corporate image give it a classic look, and a column in this theatrical space gives prominence.
“Occupying a privileged space of this floor we have the reserved area, where we paid a lot of attention to detail. Soft white leather sofas run organically from side to side in this corner dotted with sophisticated stainless steel bins designed specifically for this space.
“In the basement, the design of the nightclub is very different, the classic atmosphere upstairs has a futuristic feel where music, lighting and design come together to create more youthful ambiance.
“In addition, the Golden Lounge, a small funky space between the room and basement floor has been padded with small LED lights that give this corner a cool and calming feeling to it.
“The luxury nightclub in Gran Canaria has been fitted with contemporary toilets and service areas, these can be found on the top floor.”
