Quantorium Our design office faced the challenge to create an unique child development space supporting everything-is-possible-feeling. We proceeded on the potential of the space for transformation and breakdown of any affirmations and limitations, so the young minds could realize the power of all their abilities and capabilities. The architect developing project started with a concept. He tried to capture the idea of situation, transformation of the space from one to another stylistic trend. The idea of cabinet system was refused nearly at once as root square rooms will look boring and remind a school or any other educational institution supporting regulations and patterns. The missions set for our design office: 1. A part of the room shall be mentioned for common access – students and parents. This is a lobby, co-working, lecture hall. 2. There shall be separate closed rooms, too, with an access for students and staff only. 3. There shall be areas for team and single leisure during the breaks. 4. The rooms shall be transformable, soundproof and unique. 5. Not a centimeter of the space shall be lost, everything is supposed to be rational and functional. 6. The budget is restrained so everything what is already in the room shall be applied to its full extent. Style: the room of the office and the required functionality effected the style – the contemporary with futuristic elements. The capsule classrooms without acute angles and traditional ceilings present the future. The acoustic isolation was managed by sound absorbing panels. Concrete floor, rich colors and creative lamps made the space interesting, unique and relevant.
