"woven" coworking spaces
"Woven in space. The language of matter in the space of time. The project of partial adaptation of the space of the Red Barracks - Łąkowa 59 in Gdańsk for co-working interiors", as this is the full name of Inez Sługiewicz's diploma project, is a proposal to complement, "touch" the existing architectural space with two materials - brick and fabric.

The diploma project fulfills the function of a co-working space, with an emphasis on the possibility of renting specific rooms to people working in different ways together, in accordance with collaborative consumption [...]. The contemporary brick shapes used in the project are intended to smooth out the irregular interiors. The fabric, on the other hand, thanks to the author's braiding and stretching of the fibers on the created frame, creates a transparent, enveloping, as well as geometrizing layer of matter on the walls, allowing one to see the old brick behind it. Also an important motif in the project is the photography of one of the Bauhaus women, Lucia Moholy. The chiaroscuro effect inspired by her work interestingly complements the whole designed space," writes the author of the awarded diploma.
Congratulations to all participants of the competition! We would like to remind you that, the next edition of the Best Interior Design Diploma competition has already started - all students and graduates of interior architecture and design majors from 2020-2022 are invited to participate.
