Malmö College’s new education and research building is located on the Malmö General Hospital campus, ensuring the integration of teaching and practice. The campus is composed of freestanding buildings set among areas of green that open up to the nearby Pildamm Park.
The building complex consists of two elongated, stone-clad volumes with a connecting building of glass. The wings are each oriented toward the neighbouring buildings, resulting in an angled geometry that opens up toward the park.The three separate volumes reflect the functions of the program: education, research, and community.
In order to achieve a high level of flexibility as well as a unique ceiling expression, the floors consist of exposed double-T concrete elements, spanning from façade to façade. The constructive system is integrated with the façade, where clerestory windows allow daylight deep into the rooms through the ribs of the concrete elements.
The interior climate of the building is based on radiant floor decks of polished concrete and the natural ventilation of all spaces.
