Contractor From the architect. 7 floors of stacked small flats for students surrounds an access atrium space, defined by a color scheme that changes from yellow to bright red at the top floors – in contrast to the stark concrete facings inside and out. The yellow access area is extracted to the exterior and the red is likewise exposed on the roof terraces.
