The existing brick walled structure inspired the creation of brick–like elements for the interior, which allude to the playful building block habits of children. A 20–person ‘block conference room’ is formed on two sides by foam block walls. When the foam modules are disassembled, they become the seating system for 200–person company meetings. A modular honeycomb structure, conceived as a flexible means of managing the Disney sample product display, forms a second conference room. Our honeycomb system was subsequently licensed to the Belgian company, Quinze & Milan, for a commercial marketstyle.
