Located in Bonn, the ROM.HOF is a residential building for students. It symbolizes a bridge between the city and the surrounding old university buildings, which date back to the 19th century. From the street, the entrance leads to the corridors and the adjoining small apartments of the four-storey building. To encourage community living and interaction, the building also houses several communal rooms and spaces. The building is also intended to provide enough privacy for the inhabitants, so every apartment has a small loggia. The windows and doors are all rounded in shape, to reflect the historic architecture. For the façade, the architect used bricks to create colour gradation, ranging from red at the lower part of the building to yellow for the upper parts. This gives the building an irregular surface and visual look. Inside, the architect continued the red and yellow colour concept, and added four more colours in the various rooms – blue, beige, purple and green – with each colour corresponding to the function of the room. The apartments themselves are in grey and white. The ROM.HOF blends perfectly into its environment, combining past, present and future.
