Loop was developed as an internal meeting pavilion situated in the open plan ‘warehouse’ spaces of the RMIT Design Hub building.

While the open plan office offers many advantages in spatial flexibility and ease of interaction, the need for visual and acoustic separation for specific tasks, meetings and web-based conferencing is vital.

Rather than developing an approach that involved complete spatial and acoustic separation the design proposal sought to achieve a sense of ‘permeability’ in the modulation of spatial conditions.
