February 30, Andheri
An ingenious play of materials, textures & hues unify to weave together the off-beat ambience at February 30. The curation of the intriguing venue has been reiterated at the façade level that uses stark materiality, an interplay of reflections & lighting to create a structure that has a fleeting presence in its context. The elevation of the built form has been cladded with mirrored steel panels that brilliantly reflect the imagery of its surroundings. The entangled cloud rope light feature suspended in the frontal section against the façade makes for a signature element in the design scheme of the venue. The elevation’s visually bipolar attribute gives it a camouflaged appearance through the day as it blends into its environment. During the evenings the elevation casts majestic reflections upon its surface kudos to the statement lighting feature that appears as though it is floating mid-air.
The ambience at February 30, takes inspiration from a futuristic grammar of architecture, elements of aerospace themed aesthetics & the design sensibilities of art director Virgil Abloh. The layout of the built space is consisted of a G+1 structure, with a cumulative of 2,800 sq. ft of indoor built-up space & 400 sq. ft of an attached outdoor section on the ground floor.
The interior scheme of the venue utilizes innovative design elements that create an atmosphere that is a cusp between interstellar rawness & an astronomical character. The ground level bar & lounge sections embody the look & feel of a galactic ambience where backlit stone veneer surfaces, an iconic lunar inspired bar unit & tinted finishes amalgamate to build on the layered suspense of the space. Crevices, a sporadic arrangement of lighting beams, mirrored surfaces & a monochrome color palette play the high notes in the designed space.
