InHolland University / Erick van Egeraat

Erick van Egeraat‘s extension of InHolland University in Rotterdam adds more than 15,000 square feet to the growing education center. van Egeraat designed the original building in 2001 and now has added a volumetric addition which includes study areas, classrooms, offices and space for commercial functions.

More about the extension after the break.

The design’s interconnected forms include a nine-level bridge which spans 35 meters and connects a student apartment on one side and a three-level building on the other.  A higher volume cantilevers from the bridge building, offering panoramic views of the harbor.  The layout of the forms is quite flexible as users can isolate one specific area if needed.

Although the forms fit to create a “coherent ensemble”, each is finished with a different material.  The various finishes add a new dimension of texture to the addition as the bridge building incorporates horizontal louvers while other facades feature golden screen-printed patterns on glass.

As seen on designboom.
