The new Cambridge University building is robust, without being overpowering. The strong vertical structure, underlined by the window formats, is balanced by the horizontal TERRART®-LARGE panels and their profiling, which on the surface are slightly reminiscent of wooden mats – accentuated by the colouring. Close up, however, the fine reliefs have a brick-like character with a playful lightness of touch. Aluminium details such as the narrow, blade-like ventilation elements and the half-height window parapets also give an impression of transparency and lightness.
