Architecture firm RG/A is continuing with its transformation of Beirut's nightlife with the launch of AHM – a ground-breaking dance pantheon. Anchored on the upcoming Waterfront District, the new nightclub is situated on 1200-square-metres of reclaimed land and features a temple-like open top design that aims to reignite the imagination of the city’s club-goers.
Mast-like structures and linear lighting dominate the space, mirroring the formation of a ship on the sea and referring to Lebanon’s seafaring ancestors. A circular focal point remains a constant within the space, emulating the iconic rising sun or a full moon and drawing eyes to the neighbouring cityscape outside. The vertical components play with light and provide a wayfaring sense of nostalgia and openness. Other design elements within the club can adapt to the rolling itinerary of themed nights, allowing adventurers to immerse themselves in an alternative voyage on each visit and create their own story within their minds.
