The project is the restoration of 2,500 square meters of space within an existing building, to an accelerator, hosting start-ups that focus on new and clean sources of energy. The project falls under the category of newly emerged spatial programs for innovation centers, incubators and accelerators, and has to architecturally align itself with the contemporary work culture in such spaces. The design accommodates the spatial requirements of formal and informal activities that coexist in such programs. The core challenge of the project is to visually differentiate spaces based on their corresponding programs. This is achieved by calculated use of colors.
