Architecture School UC

Built

We were asked to remodel a building from the Nineties. We wrapped a building that had too many lines with a rather tense and straight envelop that meliorated the energy performance. We also offered a more neutral volume towards the historical building in front and added “review spaces” in between the two skins.
