SpongeSpace was created by Cyan Planet in collaboration with the architect Anna Pavelkova. Our special focus is the mental and emotional well-being of the users of our virtual space. Studies show that “blue spaces”, i.e. the proximity to water, such as coasts, rivers or even wells, have a positive impact on people’s mental health and psychosocial well-being. SpongeSpace takes advantage of these influences, creating a soothing marine environment with a peaceful atmosphere that provides a safe, comfortable and stimulating space for working, learning and networking.
sponge, as a space to come together and work productively, underlines its
fundamental importance in marine ecosystems
entrance to SpongeSpace is at the foot of the sponge. You enter the round
centre of the sponge, which serves as an open multi-purpose hall for events,
conferences and exhibitions. From this central room, a spiral staircase leads
up along the inner wall of the sponge to smaller rooms embedded in the wall of
the sponge. These rooms can be used for smaller meetings or working groups. A
highlight are the viewing platforms for coffee breaks and informal meetings,
which are located at different heights in the pores of the sponge and allow a
view of the open sea.
point in SpongeSpace is the Marine Conservation Hub, which provides access to
soothing 360° underwater videos and information on protecting the ocean. Here
the users* can let themselves be inspired, meditate, or simply experience a
moment of reflection.
