Trying to provide community and in-person instruction while protecting practitioners and teachers against covid-19, the Space Between has cultivated creative solutions, incorporating unique design elements into its permanent business model as we settle into a global new normal.

Two unique studio spaces, named Here and Now, serve as a connection for that duality of light and dark, representing polar opposites in their designs. Approximately 800 square feet, Here emphasizes simplicity with stark white walls, high ceilings, and pale oak hardwood floors with underfloor heating, all complemented by streams of natural light.
