Project description

The State Construction Management of the city of Osnabrück commissioned PLAN FORWARD GmbH with the design and the work phases 2 to 8 of HAOI for a new lecture hall and seminar building for the University of Vechta.

The lecture hall and seminar level is vertically accessed through a central core with stairs and elevator. This ensures barrier-free use of the facility. Also in accordance with its functional structure, all ground-floor parts without significant window portions are clad in a dark façade. 

The east-facing seminar rooms are naturally ventilated and protected from overheating by external venetian blinds. Ventilation flaps are integrated into the façade elements to cool the building at night.
