Roskilde University Centre, phase 1




Viewing from the outside, the L-shaped building stands out like a fortification ready to absorb the untrimmed nature, whilst, at the same time, opening up to direct access to the landscape.

To the east, on the highest part of the area, the building is two storeys high, and to the west, three storeys, enabling views to the hills beyond. Compared to the facade facing the campus, the facade facing the landscape is more closed, with traditional windows.

The square building is the last in a sequence of three for the Faculty of Arts. Its volume corresponds to the two other buildings, creating a homogenous sequence between these and yet its details create a link between old and new.
