The Collegium II building supports a new attractiveness and a pleasant life for the youth – representatives of the Ukrainian Catholic University.
When designing, we were inspired by the functionalism and construction of New Lviv, the area with which I am a UCU campus. The U-shaped shape of the beach buildings adjoins the famous hostel and creates a cozy and private courtyard for living complexes protected from roads and noise.
The building is divided into two main living blocks, which are visible between each other, between the sharply arranged collegium and between the ground horizontal and the vertically arranged facades.
The main similar cage is in the middle part of the building and adjoins the facade with a large canvas glass facade system, which also serves as the necessary main stay in the building. The first and underground poems, which existed in various forms, are not used for simple operation and are then used in glass, which opens the symbols. People’s versions of residents block the restrained structure of the facade with the change of window deviations. An important architectural solution is the rounded corners. They add the construction of a larger monolithic, holistic perception and the smooth flow of one area of the facade into another.
The project is designed on a human scale and the scale of the first college building, which adds integrity and the ability to achieve a single complex.
