The Metro Club (174 Ligovsky Prospekt) is the largest in St. Petersburg. It has three floors, the design of each of which is individual, but combines their overall high-tech style. We present the interior of the newly opened third floor. The main task of the designer was to find and implement something new, unusual. The extended space was divided into compartments with metal structures, thereby giving it a certain rhythm and distant resemblance to stations and long metro tunnels. There are deliberately paraded large pipes, metal fittings and fans. The bar with a chrome pipe, according to the architect, embodies a kind of engine that fills the rest of the space with energy, which is output on a huge dance floor with a high ceiling, super fashionable sound, light and powerful ventilation. At the height of three meters the hall is surrounded by a gallery, where professional dancers work. And one more important fact: all the furniture here was designed by the author of the interior.
