Fred Mafra is a Brazilian architect who originally designed the Josefine/Roxy Nightclub in Belo Horizonte back in 2007, and has now completely a beautiful top-to-bottom redesign of the space.  Mixing a highly asymmetrical design with LED light strips provides the visitors with ever-changing shifts in perception.  The bar measures 955-square-meters, has two dance floors, three bars, as well as four VIP sections with retractable dividers that can open to create one huge VIP space when needed.  The smoking section has a retractable roof, and the entire space is accessible to any visitors that may have special needs.  Those trapezoidal divider bays you see also have a very interesting hidden function — they are lined with double layers of drywall and a specially designed acoustic system that absorbs noise and brings down the reverberation and echoes so that bartenders can hear the customers’ orders better.  To learn more about the architect you can visit his website HERE.
