The interior floors are all different in plan and section, offering students a wide variety of spaces to suit their needs, both volumetrically and atmospherically. Inspired by themes found in nature, each level has a distinctive character—some open and interpretive with flexible furniture, while others have enclosed study rooms dividing the floors into various configurations.
