The client asked for flexibility as well as reversibility. Additionally, two basic design principles were of importance to them.
In the first place, the transformation of the 7th floor into one single space with a totally new atmosphere; completely different from the existing (standard) office spaces on the other floors.
This is particularly important because the original purpose of this building was entirely different from its new purpose, which is looking after children in the age of 0 to 4 years old.
Secondly, the creation of a space that -in terms of form and materialisation- is in balance with the mobile furniture units in order to retain a sense of unity.
In other words, a playful and yet powerful alteration.
