The renovation completed in August 2011 makes use of two materials, painted steel plates and translucent reinforced glass, combined with the harmony to contrast the fussiness and complexity of the surrounding build environment. In the interior extensive use of color and graphics create joyful living conditions for the students.

By opening and closing the flexible translucent or solid shutter panels one can control the levels of privacy and light and at the same time transform the way of experiencing the building from the lower street level.
