Extension of the University of Applied Sciences in Osnabrück
The Caprivi Barracks were redesignated as a new location for the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences as part of a revitalization project. The aim of PLAN FORWARD GmbH's design was to reduce the visually effective building mass in order to preserve the urban quality of the listed ensemble.
For this purpose, all large seminar and lecture hall areas were accommodated in a broad-based single-story building section, taking advantage of the existing topography. As an extension of the existing Kaserenenplatz, a spacious campus is achieved, which is spatially framed as a city terrace by a three-story, bar-like structure for laboratory, library and EDP uses.
