Digi Lab Graz

In this future school prototype, innovative technology, sustainable resources management, purposeful communication and progressive pedagogical principles are reflected in the interior architecture. The use of natural colours and sustainable materials along with white lab furniture serves as the main focal points of this engaging learning space.
Divided by partitions, the plaza called the Meeting Point and the conference room called the Stage, which is used for presenting new projects and research results, can be combined, as desired. The Lab – a dedicated space for investigating and experimenting with robotics – and the Studio – which functions as a television/radio studio equipped with a green screen – support the students’ investigative and creative pursuits. The connecting link to all functioning areas is the Living Room area, a light-flooded and open, flexible space, where students can study in a relaxed environment. The flexible, custom wooden modules, which form the stages and living room area, allows for greater versatility in the use of this space. The clear lines and simple furnishings create a natural, relaxed atmosphere, thereby inspiring learning.

What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
Completely new approach to learning spaces. A prototype for future learning integrated in an historic environment.
