The institute compares to two parallel ‘warehouses’ creating a space between them. The buildings are covered with a bright, nordic sandstone. Natural light cuts through the building volumes and into their internal court yard. The central room has light, transparent facades facing both the city and the river.
The staggered gables form a characteristic profile towards the river, and together with the open central room they express the active meeting points of the building. The offices offer of a more rational, clear-cut expression.
The three conference rooms placed in a separate volume suspended into the large central room add an architectural accent - an urban focus point on the river bank.
