The  student  room  is  the  structural  unit  of  the  building. This cell also determines the visual identity of the facades. Through  the  glazed  interior  facades  the  kitchen/living room  and the corridors participate  strongly in the communal life. The former is recognised by bow windows and both are furnished with colourful curtains.
