New York and Thessaloniki-based architecture firm LoT has recently completed the open-air club Pazuzu on the Greek island of Corfu
Balancing elegant architectural qualities, natural landscape beauty, inspirational gastronomy and electric music vibes, Pazuzu incorporates a blend of raw materials. The beach-front club features two distinct bars, a restaurant area seating 150 people and a lounge-club area for afternoon parties and events hosting. Two previously separate properties were merged to form the venue.
A large triangulated bamboo canopy spans over a large portion of the property, a strong unifying element that offers great shade from the bright Greek summer sun, and is also used to hang feature elements such as two long linear expanded brass metal shelves over the central bar.
A linear perforated metal curtain hangs along the former property’s wall, visually connecting and physically separating the restaurant and the club areas. The curtain runs all the way through the centre of the prominent central twelve meter long bar, splitting it in two equally operational parts, giving each of the venue spaces privacy during events.
The project was completed within an intense timeframe of less than four months from concept design to design development and construction completion and included custom-designed dining furniture, doors, planters and canopies, as well as the design of a modular DJ booth that can be moved away to make room for a temporary concert stage.
