Creating a publicly accessible campus vision, this project has transformed a dated office building into a vibrant new space for the University and the City.
In response to significant growth in student numbers, the faculty of Art at the University of Brighton is implementing a Campus concept that will consolidate their estate and open new spaces up to the public. Following an appointment to undertake a feasibility masterplan, two key campus buildings were envisioned.

This transformation from basement to recording studio lie between high technicity and aesthetic research in a noble way. Located below a residential building, the first purpose was obviously the acoustic performance ( in terms of isolation and quality of acoustic demand). Besides the technical result, it was essential to invent an engaging visual atmosphere for these places of creation. Here, the decoration is not accessory, it characterize the space. The global morphology of the caissons being largely compelled, it had to find a way from a quasi-military geometry and provide some playful dimension. The “patchwork” proposal, a combination of “stains” expanding all over the walls the floor and the ceiling, weaken the links with the space, and like an anamorphosis, energize the place.The random geometry segmentation was also perfect for the treatment of the acoustic demand. The selection of materials and colors is inspired by Ethiopian music.

Completion of the listed complex by Peter Behrens
Compared to the original building by Peter Behrens, who in the 1930s created an internationally regarded masterpiece of Modernism with Tabakfabrik Linz, the new development added in the early 1980s was not of the same architectural standard.
The 80s addition was demolished, releasing a site that the Linz authorities thought would be the perfect location for the main building of the Tabakfabrik complex and, based on its key geographical role in the fabric of the city, they decided it would be a historic chance to positively impact the development of the city.

In the design of an architectural firm, conceived primarily as a workshop of ideas, as a testing laboratory, creativity and attention to detail, we can only expect a review of the classic concept of studio. In fact, BrainFactory is a co-working space, but at the same time it is a 130 sqm apartment located in the center of Rome, fully accessible to the customer. The design choices, the furnishings and the installation of high craftsmanship are completely tangible to the visitor, which can interact with the major innovations in the field of design but also with the brands of leading companies in the industry. As a result of a major interior renovation, the planimetric distribution has an entrance marked by birches illuminated by points of light floating between the branches, placing on a background of large satin glazed windows at full height, which in addition to giving daytime natural light, they screen in attractive way the back kitchen. This visual cone, highlighted by cuts of light led carved into poplar panels, put on focus slowly the large open-space around which the environment is articulated: a central calacatta stoneware totem that becomes a distribution element in the living room; wall wire cupboards covered with artificial plants; backlit thin shelves in extruded aluminum and glass that stand over on the wall; invisible doors, custom woodworking and industrial lights from wireframe lines that draw the details. The central-room bathtub with a view over Rome, nestled between two walls covered by plants in the bedroom, reinterprets in a contemporary style an ancient concept of space utilization. Natural poplar, calacatta stoneware and microcement are the guiding principle of the entire study. In order to balance this formal rigor, elements of artificial green have been inserted: birches, bosso, banano to improve the well-being of those who live in the spaces.
