"Gains by removing" | Refurbishment of a refectory
Because of the central location of the canteen amongst the surrounding university buildings, it seemed to be useful to establish further student facilities at this location. Through the reconstruction of the canteen in Zittau, a vivid center for students was created including university library, canteen, cafeteria, administrative office of student administration and multi-functional sections for various events.
The building was gutted down to the shell of the house and all the interior walls were taken down as well. Various changes were made to the load-bearing structure, too. That's why it was possible to adjust the exterior appearance of the facades and the inner courtyard as well as the new stairwells to this new usage, without completely changing the overall appearance.
