The school Fontys is on the verge of breaking open their walls, and creating a big open auditorium space for all students and teachers. Such a renovation doesn’t usually run as smoothly as everyone hopes. What happens when teachers have to give up their fixed workspaces and desks? What atmosphere does everyone feel comfortable in? How to use the same space for multiple functions? All these sorts of questions come up. Studio KNOL addressed them in a creative session, where all parties were involved. Instead of thinking about the seemingly insolvable problems, we fed the group with inspiration. Together we worked on a life-sized map where everyones ideas could be expressed and made physical.
As a next step, KNOL is asked to make a proposal for the interior concept.
