NEXT architects + mass studies: woudestein student pavilion

the ‘woudestein student pavilion’ is a collaborative proposal between amsterdam based NEXT architects and seoul based mass studies for the erasmus universiteit campus of rotterdam, netherlands. sited amongst a dense tree canopy, this location is the ideal place for students to congregate and relax. spaces are encased within an open wooden lattice facade to maintain outward views and a continued connection with nature from all interior spaces.






the cafe’s outdoor seating is situated within a wrap around veranda blurring the boundaries between the interior and exterior. meeting areas along the perimeter of the first floor in conjunction with an open air patio provide an illuminated work atmosphere. on the top level, corner spaces become intimate terraces and offices completely constructed from the exposed cubic structure.
