This is a project by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects and it is located at Aarhus, Denmark. Project's program: Educational building. There are seven images for Campus Aarhus N, VIA University College.
Campus Aarhus N — the approx 27,000 m2 building designed by schmidt hammer lassen architects — unifies VIA University College's (Denmark) healthcare educations previously located at different places in Aarhus. The new campus building offers facilities for the six fields of study that support knowledge sharing and synergy between the educations.
The central square:
The campus building consists of four wings which centre on a light filled and dynamic atrium-a central square. The core functions are placed around the square-auditoriums, a multimedia centre, the canteen, and other shared facilities. The layout of group rooms, open study spaces, and lounge areas make good use of the spatial diversity in the atrium, thus accommodating the students’ needs for different spatial opportunities to support their learning.
Clean-cut and robust:
Inside as well as outside, the new campus building appears clean-cut and robust, reflecting the ambition for the building to be able to withstand daily use. The concrete of the interior is complemented by a colour scheme unifying the various spaces. “Flakes 2.0” chairs, by shldesign, in similar colours add to the experience of the interior. In the exterior the robustness is shown in the strong, rusty-red corten steel frames which form a beautiful contrast to the evergreen band of ivy in the façade elements, designed especially for this building. The green band of the façade integrates the building in the surrounding landscape, and emphasizes Campus Aarhus N as a building that is alive and growing.
