ITA – Student Accommodation
The project consists in the creation of a large complex of accommodation for students of the Aeronautics Technical Institute in Sao Jose dos Campos, Sao Paulo State, with 692 living quarters that will house up to 2,048 graduate and post-graduate students.
Due to such high density we proposed a space that is integrated with the University Campus but which at the same time maintains its individuality allowing comfort and privacy for the student. The intention is to stimulate student integration, creating communal spaces, green areas, bike paths, sports and leisure facilities, as well as basic services to meet day to day needs like a post office, laundry, snack bars as well as study areas, auditorium, gymnasium and academic centers, among others.
Its disposition is simple, organizing spaces in such a way so as to create settings that are sometimes more intimate and other times more integrated with the street, with those spaces connected by a diagonal axis across the site taken up by a footbridge, with gardens on the upper level and study areas housed below the structure thus guaranteeing full permeability on the ground area where the apartment blocks are situated.
