Project Location Cancún, Quintana Roo, Mexico
Entry DescriptionBrava Estudio is the adaptation of a commercial venue in the city of Cancun, Quintana Roo where pole dance, functional training, and yoga classes are offered.
The division of the premises was contemplated based on a single wooden element (pine wall panelling) which functions as the object that divides and joins all the rooms. This wooden wall is, in addition to the black atmosphere, the main object of the illumination project.
Regarding the finishing craftsmanship, emphasis was placed on the inherent qualities of the selected materials; for example, the floor is finished in polished concrete, the walls are made of blocks that were painted black, and the wood panelling is made of pine. For the section allocated to services, we chose to use natural stones such as marble and granite. Lighting was used as a tool to emphasise the height and length of the premises we gave light to the space through aluminum extruded profiles with 15w/m dimmable LED strips which gave us the oportunity of creating a very confortable space through light with a very low energy consumption, achieving the result of an open, warm, and well-communicated space.
