Our experience and perception of a space is the only thing that remains over time. A space may not exist after a time, but our memory and perception will remain with us forever. As designers, we create interior spaces, so we are curators of the context of an individual’s experience. Interior spaces are not just a place for the function of a certain task, but they have a huge impact on our psychological and physical health (Gifford, 1997).

Redesign Art+Maker's Workshop Space for Learning
Client School run by a property development company in South India
Site 2,000 sq ft. on ground floor

The idea of open layout with low horizon systems, in place of dry walled enclosures, was designed to save money by fitting more bodies into less space. This layout allows a great loss of privacy and reduces the chance to focus on the work in peace, without adding too many distractions. In an open layout, people have to find a way to work through the conversations, phone calls, and traffic around.
