Berlin Yoga Studio
The Curtain Studio
Berlin, 2018, under construction
Designed by: Alex A. Tsolakis
The floor plan is divided in 2 areas:
A) the 'permanent' construction with walls, including, wet areas, toilets, changing room and kitchenette.
B) the 'ephemeral' construction without any walls. As separation element I introduce the CURTAIN.
The variable arrangement of the curtains offers the flexibility to multiple scenarios and keeps the floor plan open, allowing the teachers to close or connect the rooms on a daily basis.
Any future scenarios are fast and inexpensive to adjust, without removing walls, etc.
Scenario 1: main yoga sala + a closed osteopathy praxis
Scenario 2: main yoga sala + a tea room
Scenario 3: main yoga sala + meditation room
Scenario 4: all rooms are visually connected for larger floor space needed for seminars etc.
Qualities and advantages of the curtain idea:
+The curtain form embraces the yoga rooms, uniforms the space.
+No doors needed.
+The 100% cotton fabric absorbs sound and humidity.
+Ventilation is easy throughout the studio.
