The renovation completed in August 2011 makes use of two materials, painted steel plates and translucent reinforced glass, combined in harmony to contrast the fussiness and complexity of the surrounding built environment. In the interior extensive use of color and graphics create joyful living conditions for the students.

The game of light and shadow is gradually revealing parts of the interior program as the day progresses. By opening and closing the flexible translucent or solid shutter panels one can control the levels of privacy and light and at the same time transform the way of experiencing the building from the lower street level.
