Transformation of a trade school

Design competition entry from studio Architectuur MAKEN for the transformation of a trade school in Utrecht, because of a growing number of students. Nimeto is a trade school with a hands-on approach for creative young people, and the building is a reflection of exactly that. In this proposal, through efficient use of the current structure of the building, the desired program can be organized within the existing skin so that additional volumes can be kept to a minimum.

In the final stages of this project I aided the small design team by reflecting upon the conceptual ideas, thinking about how to represent these and producing final graphics for presentation.
