Project Description

Refurbishment of the fifth floor of Muntpunt library into a new makerspace (De Grid)

The Muntpunt library in Brussels asked us to transform its fifth floor (formerly used as a classic library floor) into a  new makerspace : De Grid. A new space to explore creativity, enhance skills and share knowledge. Based on a grid of nine squares,  each inner space offers a different atmosphere and tools facilitating many types of making and co-working : spaces to collaborate, develop digital skills, use as a photostudio, paint, draw, collage, relax, read, do yoga, organize events and explore new ways of using a public library.
