BHSAD interior, 2010
Bright space for bright design school
The British Higher School of Art and Design (Moscow) was established in 2003. It's one of the most important educational centres in Russia working in close partnership with Faculty of Science, Technology and Creative Arts of the University of Hertforshire in the UK. 

The administration of BHSAD decided to expand school facilities and move to Artplay creative cluster in the centre of Moscow in 2010.
The main challenge I've faced with was need to plan too long and straight corridors (approximately 70 m length). I created bright and positive colour scheme which solved completely such a common problem of corridor monotony.
The new space is located at the 4th and 5th floors of former factory building. There are about 4000 square metres. 
One of conceptual solutions was visually opened administrative zone which is close to the cafe, Information Centre and recreation zone. It' stimulates people communication.
