Cambridge, 9 West Rd, Cambridge CB3 9DP, Vereinigtes Königreich

Project Description

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.
