Suite of In­dul­gence

VM&RD - - INTERNATIONAL DESIGN -

The newly launched Aura Light and Sound Suite at Long Is­land, a night­club and event space, is a unique entertainment ex­pe­ri­ence con­cep­tu­al­ized by blu­arch ar­chi­tec­ture + in­te­ri­ors + light­ing. The unique en­vi­ron­ment de­sign con­cept presents plush in­te­ri­ors with its sta­teof-the-art light­ing and crys­talline sound, mak­ing Aura the new­est sen­sa­tion in New York.

Open­ing its door to East Meadow, Aura Light and Sound Suite has added a new di­men­sion to the Long Is­land nightlife scene. Of­fer­ing a com­pletely new and high en­ergy at­mos­phere, Aura is a con­tem­po­rary lounge that is ren­dered in a fu­tur­is­tic de­sign lan­guage. “The venue is con­ceived as a vi­brat­ing space that is as fluid and mo­bile as light and sound, in­ter­fer­ing in rip­ples, waves and swells. Sur­faces of light un­du­late and push, soft walls lift and re­veal. Here all is ephemeral and light, mo­men­tary,” ex­plains An­to­nio Di Oronzo, Prin­ci­pal, blu­arch ar­chi­tec­ture + in­te­ri­ors + light­ing. Ac­cord­ing to the de­sign firm, the con­cept was de­rived from the client’s re­quire­ment of an ex­pe­ri­en­tial lounge dif­fer­en­ti­ated with de­sign and tech­nol­ogy. Form­ing the cen­ter of at­ten­tion, the space is lay­ered with a se­ries of ver­ti­cal planes pro­gres­sively ris­ing as they ap­proach the cen­ter of the room. As th­ese re­ver­ber­at­ing sur­faces rise and float, they re­veal a slanted light­ing grid that clar­i­fies their ma­te­ri­al­ity of choco­late brown vinyl, and their edges out­lined with a deep red vinyl. Spread over 6000 sq.ft, the space has been struc­tured on two main lev­els, fit­ted with three bars, one of which is free­stand­ing at the lower level. Some of the spe­cial fea­tures in the store are its flex­i­ble LED video dis­play screen ceil­ing (first and only one in New York), el­e­vated and LED il­lu­mi­nated VIP Ta­bles, pri­vate ban­quettes ap­point­ing dance floor, curved up­hol­stered walls and DJ booth, sound­proof cur­tained en­tranced and ex­its, a pri­vate VIP en­trance and LED il­lu­mi­nated bars. Talk­ing about what went in build­ing and enun­ci­at­ing the light­ing ef­fects in the lounge, An­to­nio com­ments, “We re­searched on var­i­ous light tech­nolo­gies which were nec­es­sary in ex­e­cut­ing a de­sign high­light­ing flex­i­ble LED mesh screens as one of its pri­mary fea­tures.” Th­ese screens along with an ar­range­ment of un­du­lat­ing seem­ingly pre­car­i­ously hung
