Tazmania Ballroom

A James Bond-esque lair set in the heart of Hong Kong, designed with a traditional British games room in mind.

The brief, from a client schooled in Britain, was to create a James Bond lair where customers could relax, drink and play pool.

Inspiration was drawn from the traditional British games room, which are evident in the plaster book-lined wall, suspended cornice and plush upholstery. A cavern-like entrance with a control tower DJ booth gives way to a warm curved brass bar and pool table surrounds. Dramatic lighting offsets all these elements to create a unique venue in Hong Kong.
