The Stuttgart and Barcelona based architectural practice SOMAA, founded by Hadi A. Tandawardaja and Tobias Bochmann – both graduates from EPFL in Lausanne, realised the new Mensa ‘Triangle’ which is a shared cafeteria between two neighboring schools in downtown Leonberg, a small town in Southwest Germany. Situated between the street and three existing buildings the architecture’s organic shape is based on three circular volumes fusing together to become one undulating form. Like this it creates a cohesive link between the two schools while also designating itself as a central meeting place.
