This is one of my favourite personal projects. I found the whole process very professional and working with an organism rather than a single entity makes things harder but more interesting. Reuniting various departments and people to create a singular project proved very rewarding and ultimately made for a better project. 

The idea was to create a platform between professionals and students. This platform was to be integrate to the school of engineering i, Montpellier by designing a FABLAB ( a creation laboratory) equiped with cutting edge 3d printers and laser scanners as well as other big cutting machines. 

The process started with a series of reunions between various departments that would have a stake in this project. Electrical department, engineering, finance, accouting etc… and making a thorough analysis of the warehouse where the FABLAB will be located.

The main concept is to propose a modular floor space. Each space dedicated to a different function. This concept takes into account an open floor plan, with a large amount of visibility between zones. A simple, yet highly windowed facade makes way for the entrance.

Coworking spaces

The final image shows an open, high roofed space that allow users to see across all platforms, creating a real co-working space, where social interaction is at the heart of the concept.
