October 2017 - Caring for each other

Dentistry building nominated for ARC17

The close collaboration between Inbo and Ex Interiors in the renovation and expansion of the Denistry Building of the Radboud University Nijmegen has led to the ultimate synergy between interior and exterior. The building won the NRP Gulden Feniks with in the category ‘renovation’ and it is now also nominated for the ARC17 Interior Award. A great compliment for Ex Interiors, with which we would like to congratulate them. We sincerely hope the building will gain another award. 

The brutalist concrete from the existing building has been taken as a base for the new design. For the interior there has been looking for the correct application of material and color as a complement of the characteristic concrete, taking the emotions and wishes of the different target groups as a starting point. 

According to the jury, the design radiates quality. There is appreciation for how different areas were created in the big main hall with the appropriate materials, and for how the different types of space in terms of atmosphere and use are connected to the particular program. 

The jury will announce the winner on November 30th.
