This 10,000 sq’ music club took more than 2.5 years to gut and renovate. We worked to create a timeless environment that facilitates a communal musical experience. We re-purposed architectural remains of congregational spaces salvaged from NYC and the surrounding areas. Those items include 19th-century convent doors, plentiful custom arches, chandeliers and temple pews, a 1920's circus tent, a functional candy machine from the ’50's and a purposeful mishmash of ’60's and ’70's wallpaper. We have described the design as as a “homage to an era of vaudevillian eccentricity and Victorian decadence.”
