In a popular commercial and entertainment district in Beijing lies InfraRouge, a restaurant and club occupying the upper two levels of a prominent building in TaiKoo Li Sanlitun’s North Village. The venue charts an 18-hour journey from day to night, from lunch through to 4 am on the dance floor, to wrestle with this long usage program the venue adopts a split personality and an architectural device to link the two. The restaurant is decked in white marble and red hues, a red neon line traces around the layout and up into a central stairwell leading visitors up into an eyre club space of black marble, black leather, and dark terrazzo. the constant is the maroon upholstery, the red line, and a muse whose image adorns lenticular ceiling panels on both floors; the Muse animates when visitors gaze runs past the image, bringing movement to an otherwise static image. In the club space, switchable e-glass plays with the notion of privacy veiling and revealing according to the whims of software controllers and that of the DJ.
