The building consists of five wings around a town square as a central meeting point. The building therefore has an abstract human form with wings as limbs and head and the village square as a common hart. In the village square is a large staircase that also serves as seating for theater and events for the neighborhood as well as the users. Five different users, including a primary school and a school for special education under one roof get their extra value to an excess of space and facilities that are jointly used.
Use of color
In addition to the outspoken design of the MFA the building has a special colourscheme. This use of color gives the building a clear place in it’s neighborhood. The applied colors in the facade extend into the interior,for example in the windows, floors, (kitchen) cupboards. Through this every user has his own identity. For the visitor it is thus easy to find his way.
