Suspended Nightclub in Hong Kong by Matthew Hussey
There are nightclubs on top of buildings, underwater, on board boats, and inside buses. But, if architectural studio Urbanplunger has its way, the newest hangout will be hung from another building.
The team’s design, which won the Night Club Hotel in Hong Kong’s design competition, uses the surrounding buildings as a framework to hang off and support the structure.
At ground level is a green space that is connected to the dangling structure above via a series of glass elevators. Directly above is the nightclub, which forms just one part of the overall building. Above that is a public lobby, which provides access to a spa, swimming pool, restaurants, and a business center. Keep going and you reach the hotel, which, thanks to the tapering design of the building, comes with its own balconies and aerial villas in the presidential suite.
At present, this parasitic building design is bathing in the glory of winning the design competition, so we're waiting to see if a building firm is brave enough to take this fantastic project on. We hope so.
The building rests on top of those around it, removing the need for a supporting structure. The sprawling nature of the upper parts allows the building to have balconies looking over the Hong Kong skyline.

The nightclub is anything but an afterthought -- it takes up nine of the lower-ground floors.
