The Bikuben Student Residence
Architects: aart a/s
Loneliness and lack of social relations are major problems for many students. Bikuben student residence provides the framework for the study years and improves the possibilities of a community spirit emerging in a widespread social network.
The main shape is very serene and conveys in itself the hostel’s founding principles of community and equality. To provide the greatest possible contact between common and private rooms, while at the same time ensuring the privacy of each residence, the residences and the common rooms are connected in a double spiral surrounding an atrium. Thus, the limitations of the student’s living quarters are widened to incorporate the entire building and the social contact areas, and the freedom of the individual is considered to a maximum degree.
Concrete tectonics and social responsibility merge, and the building is embedded in its place and alters its conditions.
