Type: Visual Experience and 3D Projection Mapping
Client: Sky Management
Collaboration with Minus5 Architects.
THE ONE VISUAL EXPERIENCE – Beirut, LEBANON
Studio Mr.White and Minus5 Architects were approached by Sky Management, creators of the legendary Skybar Beirut, to be part of the think tank for 'O1NE', a visionary super club concept to open both in Beirut and Abu Dhabi. Designed by Sari El Khazen Architects, the O1NE's visual entertainment is predominantly based on a 360 degrees immersive experience made possible by an ovoid architectural plan with monumental interior projection walls. In 2011, we visualized the potential of the space through the visual experience proposal video that you can see below. Two years down the line in 2013, the club opened on Yas Island Abu Dhabi during the Formula One race weekend to huge success. Our opening visuals featured custom-made magical sceneries with a massive 11k resolution handled by 16 projectors and mapped on complex curved walls. O1NE Beirut is scheduled to open soon.

FULL VISUAL EXPERIENCE PROPOSAL (2011)
In this proposal video we thrived to breathe a dynamic alternate reality into the nocturnal space highlighting the intricacies of the original architectural design and maximize the immersive clubbing experience. With 3D video mapping techniques and rich custom designed content, we showcase exciting morphing moods of the space as well as the visual transformation capabilities that will keep the clubbing crowd entertained. This proposal also included projection mapping on the outdoor walls of the club as well as a branding concept that were not adopted.
