To turn this vision into reality, brutalist architecture was envisioned, mostly concrete and steel, contrasting with its surroundings…the jungle; evoking the Mayan ruins and their location.
With a “dirty chic” concept we conceptualize this nightclub, where the contrast of natural materials and in their natural state predominates: like wood, stained chukum-type finishes; the concrete lattices, mud brick and ironwork with the velvet fabrics, the macramé threads, the synthetic leathers and the Persian fabrics. Crowned with artistic interventions throughout the building, which emphasize its own unique architectural language.
Equipped with a terrace, a speakeasy, a VIP and a main area with a fully retractable roof, which allows you to contemplate the stars, the moon, the sun, the magical sunrises and sunsets of the region, dancing under vibrant red lights and surrounded by surround sound. The arrangement of these areas is based on a gradual composition and an elliptical shape of planetary systems, such as the solar system, where the planets (tables and chairs) rotate around the central star (the track). In short, Bonbonniere is a cosmic nightclub that will unlock the fantasies of adventurous beings and foster lingering memories.
