The triangular volume inscribes itself with the neighboring building SDU in a unified campus that speaks the same architectural language. The house is its own, but in balance with the already existing neighbor building.
The master plan is a compact and sustainable building structure with short walking distances and an enriching interior spatial variation. A learning landscape takes shape in different levels and plateaus in a rotating movement upwards through the house, where different classrooms and workshops are staged and made visible.
The building has one of the world’s largest loudspeaker installations – ‘The sound-embracing atrium’ – consisting of 187 loudspeakers. The installation will be used for sound art and acoustic research.
