NOTE:

Led by founders Marissa Sackler and Simon Isaacs, Beespace is a new concept nonprofit incubator, helping to identify and launch the next generation of innovative nonprofits. By providing shared services, office space, and support from a dynamic community of innovators and leaders, Beespace is poised to launch the best and the brightest nonprofits looking to Profit the World.
We worked intimately with Interim Executive Director, Simon Isaacs from the ground up to develop the brand from the core brand positioning and brand manifesto to the visual brand identity, print collateral, website design, and office branding. We crafted an aspirational brand motto, Profit the World that champions the values, purpose, and intent of the organization. Alongside this process, we developed the core brand identity looking to distill all Beespace has to offer into a visual brand language from the logo and typography to the photography direction and icon development. It was essential that the visual identity embodied the progressive spirit, vibrant nature and energetic intentions of the organization.
One of the most exciting pieces of this brand is the Profit the World mural created to live permanently in the space. The mural is a dynamic and abstract expression of the internal ethos, energy, and values of the incubator and is a visual feast to enjoy and inspire over and again.
We are honored to be a part of bringing this incredible brand to life and look forward to continuing to support the organization and it’s incubees as they forge forth to Profit the World.

NOTE:

It’s not the music that triggers dance, it‘s the dance that creates music!
The challenge was to get the museum‘s visitors dancing. But music alone wouldn’t make it for a spontaneous groove. Therefore, we turned the tables and invented the STEPSEQUENCER – a tool which is able to create sound and music out of human movements.
Sounds and beats are being created by the STEPSEQUENCER for as long as you interact with the exhibit’s stations: a round floor-projected “instrument” and three physical tools on the side – one for jumping, one for twisting and one for seesawing.
The pads of the round floor projection are being activated by touch. If you mark a field with your hands or feet, a sound is resonating each time the rotating pointer hits the field. Depending on the marked pad’s position, different sounds are arising, each of them variously combinable with others. Once the movements stop, the sounds will hush.

NOTE:

The project develops a program of technical sports centre (R & D) about sports related to nature. The site lies on a thickly wooded peninsula in the Gabriel y Galán reservoir in Cáceres. The place is subject to periodic variation of the water level. Therefore, the location of the building is set from a certain height.
Landscape
The integration of the project in the environment takes place primarily through two strategies: scale and materialization. 
The program, about 6,000 m2, stretches becoming a circular structure of 630 meters. This achieves that the building is always perceived in a partial way. A fragment explains the building, but the only way to see the whole of it, is from above. The excessive scale dilutes the project in the environment. In addition, the building becomes an artefact. It is materialized by a system of dry construction with assembled parts. It is integrated into the landscape by contrast.
Moreover, the building rises from the ground without changing the topography. Thus, the impact on the place is almost null. Contact points are reduced to a minimum, establishing a single high level over the ground. Its alien character to environment is underlined while establishing a varied and complex spatial relationship with the topography. The elevation of the pillars varies from 1 to 4.50 meters.
Geometry
The strategy followed is to collect the program in a single structure. Using a circular geometry, we place the program as close as possible to the water border. The project is located in a seven meters span. The program is distributed as separate modules that are hosted together between the two ring planes. 
The continuous facade is altered by opening holes at irregular intervals. These empties divide the program areas and allow the communication by elements, both vertically and horizontally. The modules, called work-places, face the water and appropriate the adjacent land. Having its own access to water allows developing sport activities independently. The independent program generates diagonal relationships between them, making unnecessary an internal circulation in the ring. The ring is which organizes the complex. 
Construction
We use local both techniques and building systems. All the construction is based on standardized and prefabricated steel profiles similar to traditional constructions from farms and small local industry.
Like giant pieces of meccano, the steel components were brought into the site and simply and rapidly put together. The execution time of the work was six months. The work is best understood as an assembly of pieces than like an ordinary construction. This was achieved through a systematization and standardization of building systems throughout the project. Because of its size, the circular structure could be solved by standardized straight elements; there is no curve in the project.
Stainless steel cladding panels of the facade have a certain angle. These gills give a chameleon-like feature that allows the change of the image of the building throughout the day reflecting different sheens and hues.
