The staff room of art college Minerva in Groningen was not often used to spend any more time than was needed to drink your coffee and it had no informal qualities. Walls were white and furniture was general.
So we’ve painted the walls and made a wooden message board wall with cork knots to make the room communicate. The furniture now is picked out and designed to belong only to this space inviting people to spend their free hour there. We are happy to notice that personal now spend more time there to read the paper, check their email or just to socialize.
