The corridor´s remodeling goal was to transform a circulation into an exhibit and encounter space, a place where students and teachers can use all the time, be it as gallery of works of all the different workshops, for presentations, lectures, among many others.
Ceramic tiles were selected for the floors and a wood type vinyl plafond brings warmth and works as a phono absorbent element, on which color accents were applied in order to link it with i.d.e.a lab and the other workshops of the school. It is a very ludic, fun and functional space.
The corridor connects the school´s 5 workshops. Powerlab is where children with learning problems work with different therapists. Design is the only workshop for the school´s staff and not for the students, where they learn and practice everything related with design, communication and the school´s events. Robotics is a workshop for robotic practices and Art workshop is connected with an extension of Makerspace that grew and is the most popular.
Each workshop was thoroughly imagined and designed in cooperation with the school´s staff in order to understand its use and define its needs, as well as to being able to design or specify the adequate furniture and equipment. Special installations were done for the extraction system for the cutting machines, electrical power feeds on the plafond for the tools and the review and installation of the right type of light for each activity, verifying the security and wellbeing of all the users.
