In 1973 Pacha landed in Ibiza during the hippie movement, an Ibizan architectural house located on the outskirts of the island’s urban core, but soon to become the place of reference and icon of clubbing for both locals and visitors. Since then, the brand has evolved in leaps and bounds, but to date the club had not known a remodeling like the one that this 2018 presents.
Back to basics…
Flashback, return to the essence, to the origin, to the authenticity, to the heart of Pacha Ibiza.
A clean reform, designed and made for the public. An adaptation to the XXI Century, in safety and avant-garde, but at the same time, an analog transformation that seeks to capture – more than ever – the excitement and experience between clubber and DJ with modifications as simple as bringing the DJ booth to the dancefloor.
With the help of Juli Capella, the architect in charge of realizing this dream, the spaces, routes and bars have been optimized and all this, without losing an iota of his original Ibizan architecture, with a special sensitivity to the values of eco design and sustainability.
The DJ booth was presented as an architectural barrier, away from the public and showing the artist as a deity, hindering that sought-after approach – not only by clubbers – also by artists. This new position of the Pacha’s DJ booth, now located in the middle of the dancefloor, had already been shown at the club for the last five years, but only on Sundays with the residence of Solomun+1.
The architect Capella – never visited the club during the Solomun+1 nights – decided to make this change because centering the cabin is the most natural way for the public and DJ to feel the greatest connection. Capella is not a clubber, Solomun is not an architect, but both have been inspired by the same thing: to provide the nights of Pacha the best experiences.
The recreation of different areas with their own personality, the elimination of elements added over time or the recovery of iconic elements, through plant decoration and Mediterranean colors, are other improvements included in this project. These works, inspired by the simple forms of the Ibizan constructions, will be translated into open spaces, in which luminous colors will predominate to create welcoming environments and above all to be able to experience the Pacha Ibiza experience in 360 degrees.
All night long…
This winter has been unusual for Pacha. The redesign has forced the club to stay temporarily under the curtain, but after a few months of suspense the cherries are ready to reappear.
