TOTO by Filipao Nunes Arquitectos

Filipao Nunes Arquitectos have been shortlisted for Bar/Club/Lounge – Global Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2020.

Inspired by the whimsical and wonderful world of “The Wizard of Oz”, this multi-sensory and magical club is the place to be. Filipao Nunes Arquitectos have created an experience like no other, set to intrigue, interest and delight guests.

TOTO is divided into two separate zones; the first hall has been designed to be the main seating area for guests. Sofas line the length and width of the space, where guests can sit back and relax, or dance around their table. The design is linear and concise, with optimum viewing as all guests face towards the DJ. Behind a spectacle of vibrant, visuals playing on the large screens, the DJ appears before the guests to entertain them.

Guests can explore the club, as if they are walking to Oz, finding clues to the next experience. Behind one of the accents on the wall, you can find a hidden hall. This hall is specifically designed for Latin music lovers, dedicated to playing Latin music all night long. Inside this secret hall, you will find a hidden bar.

There are multiple different spots in this project, each one designed to take you to a different sensation. The ceiling beams with lasers and reflects flashing spotlights onto guests. The colour palette integrates with the lighting and the art, whilst helping the wooden detailing to pop.

Filipao Nunes Arquitectos have designed the space using different materials to create different desired effects. The designers have mixed reflections with opacities, and traditional Japanese wood has been finished with classic moulding. There is a wooden bunker designed to transport guests to an immeasurable sensory experience. Technology has also been used throughout the project, to enhance the magical experience.

The design concept is strong throughout this project, with the eclectic and whimsical mood of The Wizard of Oz, reflecting into every design detail. This club is a magical experience, like no other.
