OKU Rectorate Residence
organizing levels of privacy
OKÜ Rectorate Residence, 2017
As the building is expected to serve both institutional and private functions, the design focuses on the potential relations between of these two uses of different requirements. The first mass to be recognized upon approaching the building houses the reception chamber of the rectorate. The reception unit, designed for meetings and other public activities, is located closer to the street border, and thus provides improved privacy for the rector’s residence. The reception unit and the house are connected via a bridge that houses a private study room for the rector.
The structure provides separate open spaces both for the reception unit and the house, and allows spontaneous use of both. Both units are contained in modest masses to allow a spacious green zone around the structure.
