On Thursday, 2 October, the renovated R3 building of the Fontys Rachelsmolen campus in Eindhoven officially opened. Mecanoo designed the entire renovation of the building, which was completed in only six months. SILO developed the visual identity of the building, elaborated with signage and graphic and spatial applications throughout the building.
Previously a closed building, R3 now connects the campus with the city through a large transparent entrance. Designed as an inspiring vertical campus, the large variety of study programs makes cooperation throughout the building easy and self-evident. Private study rooms located at the higher levels provide quieter working areas for individual study.
The surface of the project comprises 8000 m2.
