The neighboring listed public bath by Paul Hedquist

“We have strongly emphasized that new educational building should have a gentle, but strong visual connection to the neighboring listed public bath by Paul Hedquist. By giving the new building a clean geometry and uniform surfaces, we have created clear references to the Scandinavian functionalist architecture of the public bath”.
