SAXION

Deventer, NL

‘Property developer BV’ would like to assign a new function to this department of Saxion Deventer. They therefore asked for design-proposals where this department would be changed into an office. Purpose of the re-designation is to connect entrepreneurs and students. They will start to communicate and share knowledge.The design is focussing on the re-designating of the entrance. This is the meeting area for students and entrepreneurs. The concept ‘cathedral’, has been established in several steps,  which are added in a total of three basic elements

.

The first element is pointed arches, derived from cathedral buildings. 

The second element is an addition at the height of the first floor. A plateau that forms a connection between the old and the new wing. This platform is derived from the choir, which is normally placed in the back of the cathedral. This platform is supported by pillars, which forms a representation of an organ.  The third element is the coffee bar, which is placed in the middle of the hall. This makes it possible to consult and meet with students and entrepreneurs.
