While maintaining the structural quality, the building transformed into a vibrant, interactive space that students could relate to.
The conversion of a dilapidated mill into a contemporary and institutional space resulted in the Empire Institute of Learning.

The form and colour infused energy and dynamism into the interior spaces.
