FOYER | LEOPOLD MUSEUM | LOADED COMPETITION
TOGETHER WITH CHRISTA STÜRZLINGER FROM STUDIO CS
The Leopold Museum wanted a new use for the elongated shell limestone foyer on the first floor with a number of openings as a waiting and meeting room with additional use for various events, temporary coffeehouse operation, increased shop presence, reading room and anteroom to the children's studio.
So much at once!
We place three, tapering, rising and slightly rotated, leather-covered counter-rotating bars in the middle of the room. The long bodies are divided into portable elements and removed in the area of the necessary passages. Over a length of 22 m there are various options for use: lounging on wide lounge elements, classic sitting with a backrest, standing desks for storing or leaning on. The contiguous beam elements can be simultaneously elongated, slightly offset, curved as an auditorium or grouped into small dwell zones. The design is complemented by leather-covered tables, inductive charging stations and three floating light bars.
