Karel De Grote-Hogeschool approached us with the question whether we could turn their old automechanics workshop into a library/reading room. We decided to brand several rooms. This way, in addition to The Stockroom, The Office & The Fablab, The Library was created, functioning as a central meeting point.
Our graphic interventions were inspired by the industrial character of the space. Details from the old electrical cabinets form the basis of our colour palette. We used this to apply coloured surfaces on the floor where the tables were parked, as it were. By naming them with L1 (low table 1) or H2 (high table 2) the parking garage atmosphere was enhanced. Furthermore, by means of banners and stickers some graphic elements were added to complete the space.
What used to be a dusty workshop is now a cool place to read, meet or recover after a long day of lessons.
