The project is created as part of the integrated studio focused on Co-working space and CLT construction. We recognized the active use of the site by the community and thus wanted to create a gathering space on the ground floor. The building forms the space creating front and back plazas. The auditorium spans above the two rectangular bodies creating an iconic image of the building recognizable from afar. Finally, the facade shows the building program on the outside and reflects the use of natural materials in the construction through wooden louvers.
