VIA University College Campus, Denmark
VIA University College Campus Horsens is an open and unifying shared learning and knowledge environment that is directly integrated with the city and landscape, creating connections and relationships between students, staff, business, and the citizens of the city.
A bright slender 16-storey tower and three atrium buildings are united through a central inner shared atrium space, bringing together 27 education programmes and 2,900 students, businesses, and citizens of the city.
The external geometry of the buildings is carefully attuned to the location and the city, creating new exterior urban spaces. Each atrium building represents its own disciplines and programmes. The building’s interior appears organic and rounded to support a vibrant and friendly environment. There are niches, atrium staircases, and hotspots along balconies, combined with open group spaces and hubs. The lower floors are designed to support activity-based learning and knowledge sharing, and the upper floors for contemplation.
In collaboration with French artist Daniel Buren, C.F. Møller Architects has created building-integrated art. The art can be seen in a large work at the Innovation House, the auditorium, and in the atrium’s glass ceiling, where coloured glass creates a work that unites students, space, and light.
Durable And Sustainable
The building is characterised by selected tactile and durable materials such as bricks in red and golden shades, oak with a warm glow, textiles in a few warm colours and light and cut-outs in the atriums with skylights.
VIA University College Campus Horsens is designed as a compact building with a focus on sustainability in terms of energy optimisation, minimisation of building materials, low running costs and a good indoor climate with optimised daylight conditions. The design results in short technical supplies and a smaller facade area, which reduces the need for temperature regulation as well as the volume of building materials. There are few stabilising walls and integrated diffuse ventilation makes the buildings flexible and robust for future adaptations.
The building is part of the wider Campus Horsens, which is also designed by C.F. Møller Architects.
