POW ideas | 吉隆坡复古霓虹风泳池俱乐部
POW ideas设计的游泳俱乐部是一个游泳池和活动平台，位于吉隆坡市中心精品酒店KL journal hotel的11层楼顶。由于地处热带，泳池平台被设想为城市居民和附近购物区bukit btang的购物者的城市休闲场所。由于地处热带，泳池平台被设想为城市居民和附近购物区bukit btang的购物者的城市休闲场所。
the swimming club by POW ideas is a pool and event deck situated on the 11th floor rooftop of KL journal hotel, a boutique hotel in the heart of kuala lumpur, malaysia. being in the tropics, the pool deck is envisioned to be an urban retreat for city dwellers and also shoppers from the adjacent shopping district of bukit bintang.
inspired by the imagery of david hockney’s artworks, the pool deck is comprised of four main components: a bar, a dining area, a terraced deck and a mezzanine event space. taking cue from the vibrancy of colors in hockney’s works and also his use of patterns, lines and planes, the pool deck is designed by POW to be individualistic and alluring at every corner.
the main deck is tiered into two-levels to provide space for the hotel water tanks below but reimagined as a tiered series of planter boxes and seating, allowing pool users to have dynamic social encounters. KL-based branding agency, from landsunknown provided identity for the logo and also geometrical graphics for the custom bent steel grilles that help break down the space into smaller and more private nooks.
POW ideas还与伦敦当地时装设计师cassey gan合作，巧合的是，他开发了一系列以hockney为灵感的新版画。他们的合作产生了一系列定制的模块化和可堆叠的户外家具，使用gan的印花作为坐垫的内饰。手工制作的藤椅和凳子给泳池增添了一种质朴和怀旧的感觉。
POW ideas also collaborated with london-trained local fashion designer, cassey gan, who was coincidentally developing a new collection of prints inspired by hockney. their collaboration gave birth to a bespoke series of modular and stackable outdoor furniture using gan’s prints as upholstery for the seat cushions. hand-made rattan chairs and stools lend a rustic and nostalgic touch to the pool.
a large steel roof with openable red canvas fabric spans across the entire length of the space, providing a visual connection and also shading against the harsh tropical weather. custom-made timber blinds with the logo of the swimming club not only provides shading but also a visual identity, visible from the ground level shopping district below. as the sun sets, hand-written neon signs illuminate the walls, encapsulating the 1960s spirit the pool projects. three giant neon rings cast an artificial sunset against the pool water, transforming the lush sun-kissed pool deck into a space for an intimate and sensual night out.
