Student housing at Belval
ORGANISATION OF A COMPETITION
Architectural competition for the conception of a student residence for students of the University of Luxembourg, located at less than 900m. Candidates were asked to develop a concept taking into consideration the potential needs and desires of 45 students, while adhering to the demands of a pure architectural style, in line with the context of Belval, and the specific functionality of student life. The idea was to create a convivial living area, while giving the students the opportunity to step back from the hustle and bustle of daily life and find somewhere calm to study (wooden construction of AAA energy class).
