Space renovation is an effective way to revitalize the old site,
which can improve the reuse rate of space.
When transforming a small space,
you may be troubled by the lack of space,
but when transforming a large space,
you will also be troubled because there is no way to start. trouble.
This project is the renovation project of the building in Kharkiv, Ukraine,
transforming the huge exhibition center into an IT factory for training and practical office,
and giving new functions to the blank space of the old exhibition center.
First at the entrance, the bright orange portal and the reception area
that can be lit in different colors are used to highlight the modern
and technological sense of the remodeled place.
Undertaken by [TSEH Architecture Group],
this is a large space with an area of 2500 square meters.
The goal of the renovation is to create an innovative IT school named [Kharkov IT Factory].
For a quick and low-cost retrofit, the project uses a mix of architecture,
including steel structures and shipping containers.
This space made up of 122 modern computers
and long tables is the IT training station.
Due to the high ceiling of the old exhibition hall,
the lighting installation of the space would be very difficult.
But above the training station in this open space, the architects innovated a special metal structure
that can be used to hang lighting and sound-absorbing panels, among other things.
They are stable and lightweight,
making them suitable for hanging items in large spaces.
In addition to the IT training station,
this IT factory also includes two floors of modern office space.
This space is contracted by modular buildings,
and different containers are divided into different independent office areas.
On the ground floor are mainly large, modern conference rooms with 46 seats.
The staircase is a simple steel structure with a comfortable sofa seating area next to it.
On the second floor are offices with 4, 6, and 8 working seats respectively.
The interior has an independent lighting system, and all of them have floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
You can look down on the activities on the lower floor in the box.
These enclosed spaces are shielded from other spaces and are suitable for independent work.
