THE SCHOOL LOBBY RENOVATION AND ITS VARIATIONS

Just as a living room connects and combines family members, so the school lobby should be the central place for all its users. Its volume and height allow to design a certain space, not only on the basis of its floor plan, but above all on the basis of a cross section. The lobby can thus become a school living room, a space for events, a parental waiting room, a children's play area, a hall with a gallery overlooking the ground floor and from where it is possible to observe the area, etc. Mentor: a senior lecturer and an architect Benjamin Hafner Authors of study projects: Tjaša Gerdej, Anamari Pavlič, Nataša Avsenik, Jana Favai, Lara Brinc, Anja Kolenc, Emanuela Starc, Nina Mlakar, Lina Škerlj, Polona Žajdela, Lara Kordež The Faculty of Design / Associated Member of the University of Primorska Study year: 2018/19 Location: City of Design, the Faculty of Design exhibition area Address: Dunajska cesta 123, Ljubljana www.zavodbig.com Exhibition dates: 8.–14. 10. 2019 Opening hours: each workday: 10 am - 5 pm, during the main events: 10 am - 10 pm An accompanying event: The school lobby renovation and its variations – a lobby as a school living room.
