Project Description

The presentation of a plate is as important as its taste. By analyzing the sun angles during the different class sessions in the last day of the academic year, the building allows the perfect beam of light to cut through the perforated metal skin and slightly wash the final project of the culinary students. The same way every critique room has its own enlightenment moment, many spaces throughout the building have similar conditions. In the restaurant, an army of 36 skylights catch the northern light and make the dining-in experience more pleasant.

In the higher levels of the building, a series of lounges, computer labs, practice kitchens and study areas allow students to live and study smoothly. Many of these spaces look into the atrium and the vertical circulation. The light chimneys This enlightenment connection of frosted glass which creates evenly distributed light all around them, these chimneys feed many of the spaces with natural light all throughout the day.
