MVA Office
Ljubljana, Slovenia - special prize
For the design of MVA's own design studio, the office searched high and low settling on the attic of an ornate art nouveau townhouse. Keeping MVA's generally hygenic ethos, the design sought as much open space as possible relegating all service programs, such as kitchen, bathroom, and storage underneath an added balcony hung with a steel structure from the roof structure of the house. By punching two big skyligts into the dizzyingly inclined ceiling of the attic, the already cool, white space is bathed in an all-over milky white-ness. Vocabulary: superwhite, dream state, warm glow.
