design consists of 335 student apartments built using top quality prefabricated units. Each unit has a balcony, windows, underfloor heating and bathroom fixtures completed in the factory and transported to the site. The buildings? position is temporary
, and in the future they will be moved to their final location. The dark wood of the façades was chosen to give the complex as a whole a long-lasting, compact look. The outdoor area, on the other hand, is mainly in light colours, with lawns and a playing field between the buildings. The project has been awarded the 2011 VKG Architecture Prize.
