A key part of the program was to successfully combine public spaces, such as the café and restaurant, with the need for more private research and development areas on the upper floors. The integration of the building into the wider context of the university campus was achieved by bridging the building volumes form over the main pedestrian route from the campus to the sports ground. Entrances from this main pedestrian route open up the publicly accessible ground floor the building, which hosts lectures and exhibitions from all of Chalmers’ faculties. Inside golden hues dominate in the furniture and materials specification to echo the building’s exterior. A focal point of the interior is a free-standing metal staircase to encourage chance encounters between tenants.
