Aim were commissioned by Dundee University Students’ Association to form a new bar within the existing Mono nightclub. The work involved the removal of a separating wall and the transformation of a storage area to form staff and public bar facilities as well as an extended seating area.
Working within tight budget constraints Aim adopted a simple approach using inexpensive construction materials to create a robust industrial aesthetic. OSB timber sheets were used to add texture and interest to the walls and louvered panels compliment the exposed ductwork that existed at ceiling level.
Subtle lighting and a strong brand have added to the aesthetic creating an atmospheric space that has extended the useful and profitable space within the nightclub adding another popular destination to those already present in the Students’ Union.
“Aim’s creative use of cost effective construction materials has created a hard-wearing yet attractive addition to the Dundee University Students’ Association. The additional space created has increased our profitability and the design has proved very popular with the students.” - Chris Clarke, Dundee University Students’ Association
“Aim’s clever use of space has provided a new area of the nightclub that can be easily managed and separated for VIP functions and out of hours presentations. The new bar and its industrial aesthetic have been a real hit with the students.’’ - Chris Clarke – Dundee University Students’ Association
