The design principles of the building are built around the connectivity of the fashion academy with the surrounding urban environment. It revitalizes the existing urban situation by connecting the commercial street with the square of the church by introducing an interior public space. This space works as connection node for the urban space and the activities within the academy. The whole program is based and developed around it and is emphasized by the circulation within the building. The form and the language of the building are following the existing morphological rules of the surrounding buildings. The volumetric treatment is revealing the identity of inside activities and is creating a new level of connection between the academy and the public life of the city.
