This home for 50 students is located in the centre of Copenhagen, Denmark. The existing, old building is designed with a new, funky interior suitable for Danish and foreign students. The main concept is the circle that dictates all new interior and exterior design. The common areas are located in the centre of the building around a circular atrium that makes an open vertical connection through the building. The private homes are designed with a special feature – bookshelves with mirror walls that create great spatial effects. Using IR-technology the walls in the corridors are transformed into interactive touch screens connected to the students computers. Here students can communicate with other students even though they’re not in the same room.
