living in a vision | BFZ Barrierefreie Zone GmbH | World Design Awards 2022

BFZ Barrierefreie Zone GmbH: Runner-Up of World Design Awards 2022. A strict separation between work and homework with the children and leisure time activities are in the foreground in the project. To achieve this, an apartment in standard design, near the school was selected and redesigned for this purpose. A family meeting place has been created, which can also be used a workplace within the family environment. In order to ensure structure and clarity of the design idea the main materials were reduced to Corian®, burnished steel and oak wood. Warmth and coziness are created by translucent Corian® panels in the work area, the oak wood and the inviting sofa, which is also a bench, therefore connecting the dining space and the living room.
