Plovdiv - third prize
The old flooring is almost completely kept after refurbishing and changing part of it with gray-colored tiles as well. The new lighting hangs around the found on the construction site old steel nets, which are typically used as a supporting unit for concrete works. The tables are made of steel profiles with marble tops. Half of the chairs are taken from old schools, where they were abandoned as unnecessary objects. They are completely covered by the original student scribbles and names of bands and local football teams, which only underlines the searched contrast between new and old. All the used materials give respect to the memories of the place and brings them back to life one more time today.
