Piazza Dell’Ufficio by Branch Studio Architects, which was named interior project of the year at Dezeen Awards 2019, teaches children about the power of design says judge Eva Jiricna in this movie.
Located in a suburb of Melbourne, the renovation of the administration offices of Caroline Chisholm College attempts to reduce visual barriers between staff and students.
The project, which also won the award for small workspace interior of the year, references Italian town squares and their ability to bring people together. The piazza-style room, now the hub of the office, can be accessed and used by everyone.
“We used an Italian piazza for the inspiration of the design of the project to create a space that would open up a dialogue between staff and students,” explained Brad Wray, creative director and co-founder of Branch Studio Architects.
Piazza Dell’Ufficio, which translates from Italian to “office square”, includes a variety of spaces that are almost entirely lined in slim cardboard tubes.
