/ complete refurbishment, spatial rearragement & interior of the Main building of de VU University.

/ accommodation of the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, Faculty of Philosophy & Faculty of Social Sciences

/ the building, originated in early 70s, is an important young brutalistic city landmark

/ the layout concept is based on the preservation of the unmistakable quality elements of the existing building and smart tackling of the aspects that did not fit the new, modern university needs

/ the design tries to preserve the visual and qualitative unity of the characteristic robust building structure. The additions try to be modest, contemporary and refined.
