Melbourne-based Alexa Nice Interior Design has recently completed the design of a New Mexican cantina inspired bar, Chilliwow.
The overall design and feel of Chilliwow is a colourfully rich, playful and relaxed atmosphere showcasing the historically-beautiful Mexican culture. The venue, is spread over three levels complete with private dining rooms, a dance floor, private dining booths and an alfresco area.
Inspiration has been taken from colours and patterns of the natural Mexican landscape elements, with blues, yellows, pinks and oranges applied to the facade, interior and alfresco areas, with architectural and cultural elements layered into the design, accents of festivities, iconography and Mexican symbolism completing the look.
Audiovisual solutions for Chilliwow was sourced from Acoustic Technologies. The venue required a versatile accurately zoned sound system that blended into the exotic and colourful decor but still provides the required volume levels.
The end result is an extremely versatile system that provides excellent performance in the space while maintaining an extremely low profile. In particular, the LG03 cabinets provide stunning volume and clarity for their size which is extremely imperative as DJs and live performers (mainly Mariachi bands) use the system as their primary source of sound reinforcement. MK100’s provide amazing coverage and clarity in the lounge and seating areas while a single MK75 mounted directly in the centre of the private function room roof provides strikingly uniform coverage throughout the space.
