The original cluster of RITS buildings suffered from an almost labyrinthine unstructured nature. There was a need for a more logical circulation pattern. Extensive alterations to the existing buildings have now created a better working environment for teachers and students in a more creative and artistic atmosphere.

Galvanized steel features throughout the project – in particular for the main façades. On the side of the courtyard garden, a large escape staircase was constructed entirely of galvanized steel: a combination of steel mesh flooring and profiles. Within the building all air and cable ducting was left visible and constructed from galvanized steel.
