Great emphasis was placed on preserving and enhancing the qualities of the space as such. That is clarity, variability, brightness and airiness. The basic elements: concrete, glass facade, installations and metal floor tiles, thus remained without significant changes, on the contrary, their character was underlined. In contrast to predominantly industrial materials, finer organic materials based on textile and wood were also chosen in the design. Oak plywood was used at the stage, welcome wall and cloakroom. Light textile was used in order to achieve the highest possible optical and acoustic comfort for continuous work. The division of the space with the help of textiles also made it possible to work with round shapes inside the space which again underlines the organic character of the interior. Lighting and other accessories are designed in white or anthracite color which draws no significant attention to itself, but conversely contributes to the overall harmony.
