Text description provided by the architects. Composed of multiple casual functions – this microcosm of student life is unified under the ground like stairs structure which soars outwards to embrace its newly-interconnected neighbours. Each function is expressed as a self-contained volume with its own unique spatial character. These volumes are lifted, twisted, pushed in and out of the façade, the resulting voids and spaces in-between form the buildings navigable corridor-less public landscape. 

Section and view

The exterior has strong monotone references to the adjoining context, yet when one transitions through the facade during the day or as evening approaches on the concourse, the fun, colour and vibrancy of this centre springs into life.

The building comprises three separate parts: a three-storey building housing the student canteen and a roof structure housing the students co working.

The design of the building aim to fulfill two main goals: integration of the building into the natural surrounding landscape on one hand, and functional clarity on the other hand.

Floor plan

This clarity was achieved by separating the two main activates: the Students canteen and the co working area into three steps with differing characteristics of space, volume and operational organization.

" steep is the slope to the water that the house appears to have been dropped into the ground, a dynamic house -crafted object that has landed in a natural canvas. The intimate dialogue between the greyish of the house and the primary blues and greens of trees, and sky allows the house not only to assert its own presence but to enhance, by contrast, the beauty of its natural environment as well."
