The Science Learning Institute brief was to accommodate a series of spaces into an existing first floor void within Dundee Science Centre. Equally an exercise in services alterations as well ergonomics, the spaces were carefully slotted between existing structure and ventilation to provide additional office, meeting, education and seminar rooms. A meeting nest and breakout cell are perched above the café and exhibition areas respectively.
New offices provide bespoke work group zones and break out areas as well as staff room and toilet facilities. A small education space is also perched overlooking the exhibition areas. A large seminar space can be split into two smaller spaces if required.
The interior theme references biology and medical science with pixelated human cells and red and white blood cell abstract artwork wrapping around several spaces complimenting with amoeba-like lighting and cellular carpet finishes.
