BitDegree, a blockchain based education company offering people online courses with transparent blockchain-based scholarship system and achievement tracking, recently moved into a new office in Kaunas, Lithuania, designed by architecture and designer Vaiva Andriusyte.
“The speciality of the company is about creating educational courses, generating new ideas in different groups and day by day presenting it to all of the colleagues. That’s why two main goals were set – the maximum amount of rooms for brainstorming and transformable lounge area. Lounge area is before all else a constantly changing space dedicated to relaxation during the day, and completely different atmosphere with the curtains closed and sofas rearranged for the movie nights or achievements presentations. The work space, which could be called semi-open, provide both – privacy and community feeling for the employees. Different from the lounge area the work spaces are bright and lightweight. Entrances are claded in wooden panels and some soft floral touches. Meeting rooms and phone booths are partly transparable volumes, located between the working space and lounge area. Rooms are playing with each other by beautiful visual connections through the glassy inserts. The aim was to create as many different work and meeting spaces as it could appear in this 250 sqm plot and give the cozy feeling for existing square white office space. By swallowing the old and low metalic ceiling, we opened the beautiful industrial sky and gave some charm for the space in an extremely tide schedule,” says Vaiva Andriusyte
