Featuring four large multi-purpose studios on two floors, the space is flexible and designed to foster collaboration and experimentation, allowing students to conceptualize, create and exhibit their work within a single, multi-form space.

The ground-floor studios include 360-degree video cameras and large monitors to facilitate demonstrations and tutorials, while the second floor has a wet studio with a state-of-the-art ventilation system, enabling a wide range of materials to be safely handled.
