The Bowling Club
Project Type : Restaurant & Bar
Completed : September 2018
The Bowling Club is an extension to the athleisure inspired F&B establishments by the owners of The Swimming Club – a POW Ideas project in 2018. Situated in the lobby of an office and hotel tower, the design of the space references bowling club aesthetics from the 1960s. With branding done in collaboration with Ejin Sha and custom acrylic bowling-inspired photographs by conceptual photographer Nadirah Zakariya, the space is divided into two zones – an indoor dining area and a semi al-fresco bar area. The design plays with simple vertical timber paneling with thin groove lines paired against hints of brass and sage green tones, all tied together with dark meranti flooring and wall paneling for that retro yet modern atmosphere. Subtle curves on the window and wall profiles creates a dynamic impression akin to the spirit of bowling. Taking cue from the black and white stripes imagery from bowling alleys, the custom floor and outdoor wall tiling visually connects both the indoor and al-fresco area.
