The collective lifestyle at halls of residence is emphasised in this project, with architecture that highlights the common areas. The complex, which can house a total of 252 students, displays a modernist and vertical expression in its two buildings of nine and ten storeys, respectively. The common rooms appear to float between the two buildings, and take the form of zinc-clad cubes, each with their own interior colour of yellow, orange or grey. These help to give the hostel a strong visual identity, even at night. The buildings are arranged in a U-shape which opens up towards the south in a large open atrium courtyard, thereby contributing to the visual and physical contact between the individual rooms.
