How to Handle the Programming Process
Based on the tender documents we have received regarding the Appraisal and Design Brief we see many possibilities for a transformation of the former office building into an attractive university environment. However, there are also some issues that need special attention:
• As mentioned earlier, in a new university you will often try to create attractive and inspiring meeting places for scientists and students. The purpose is to encourage and stimulate human interaction and debate as well as exchange of scientific ideas, also across the faculties. This type of space does almost not exist in the space programme.
• The space programme includes a number of music rehearsal rooms, recording studios, etc. which usually have very high requirements for sound insulation (box-in-box constructions). Investigations as to the incorporation in the existing constructions are needed.
• The storey height seems to be approx 4 m. The space programme includes 4 large lecture rooms shaped as amphitheatres and 2 concert halls together with 2 TV studios with a total net floorage of 4,020 m2. These rooms will require a higher storey height than 4 m. What are the options?
• As the space programme seems to reflect a total net sq.m requirement of at least 21,879 sq.m. (not including walls, installation shafts, staircases, elevators, corridors, toilets, depots, facility rooms etc.) there is a potential imbalance in relation to the present building floorage of 30,476 sq.m. When designing university projects we know from experience that the net floorage must be multiplied by 1.5-1.7 in order to calculate the gross floorage requirement.
