A visit


I had the opportunity to visit the Department of Architecture at the University of the Free State this week. Their new building has recently been completed and all of a sudden I wish I was a student again. The architects, Typology Architects (no website yet), managed to achieve an amazing result: within budget and way before the estimated completion time. They essentially added a mezzanine floor and new roof structure to the existing building. The studio space now gets amazing natural light and ventilation and the spaces are utilized much more efficiently. Here are a few snapshots.
