HUBB – Learning Environments
Mecanoo architecten and Gispen are collaborating to explore the working and learning environment of the future, spaces that accommodate multiple activities simultaneously, without becoming generic.
With a seemingly simple core form, HUBB comprises a series of building blocks that enables endless combinations. This offers the flexibility for customisation, plus the ease and quality of a proven system. And if the spatial requirements change, the building blocks can be easily reused by adapting or expanding the configuration. A set of chairs used for a collaborative setting can be transformed into a hub for concentrated working with the addition of a roof element. Or they become a bench when joined together.
With its modularity and standardised components, as well as the use of responsibly sourced timber and recyclable materials like PET and steel, HUBB is a highly sustainable solution.
