Centre for Hearing and Language - Refurbishment of old School Building
03
Published on February 24, 2011

The interior of the old school building from the early twentieth century has gone through many renovations over the years. The aim was to trace back to the building’s unique qualities and reestablish it as one unit. Cores of the refurbishment were: the restoration of original light and spatial qualities and the recovery yet new interpretation of the original used colors. Necessary new fittings such as staircases are clearly visible as individual components within the building.
