Student Dormitory And Restaurant Campus Varaždin

The new student dormitory and restaurant buildings are part of the urban configuration along the existing Austro-Hungarian dorm with its defined height and its treatment of the facade with strips of stylized classicism. The restaurant forms an orthogonal classic access square, while the student dormitory forms a semi closed block composition with the existing residence opening to the west, drawing the restaurant into a linear composition parallel to the existing railway lines on the southern edge of the site. The plastic of the prefabricated concrete strips divide each floor and forming a rhythm between the transparent surfaces of glass and the full dark fiber-cement slabs. The roof surfaces are flat, partly designed as terraces. The building consists of an underground level, ground floor (student facilities, bicycle parking and other service areas) and 5 upper levels (243 rooms with 600 beds). The project is categorized as an A+ energy design, using heat pumps, solar power panels and rainwater to cover its demands and even supply energy to the existing dormitory.
