Architecture School in Stockholm

Tham & Videgård 

Inserted into the heart of the campus of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, putting a preexisting courtyard to good use, is this new architecture school building covering a total floor area of 9,140 square meters in six floor levels. Its curves are its badge of identity. Both the exterior of the school and the interior spaces are designed with these contours, the idea being as much to ease movement and circulation as to integrate the building into a tight historical urban fabric.

The facade shows CorTen steel panels that stick outward along the lines where they frame the large windows, and its reddish tones serve to visually connect the building to the neighboring monumental brick constructions dating a hundred years back. This material, moreover, contributes to the maintenance of energy efficiency. Inside, the surfaces of exposed concrete alternate with wooden panels that for their part help to improve the acoustic conditions of the spaces.
