The new Faculty of Science is located as a freestanding building on a prominent site of the Utrecht University campus. Approximately half of the building contains laboratories and the rest provides education and work space on various and open floors, grouped around the central hall. This atrium-like space is directed to the outside in a covered outdoor area with an open classroom, where there is an opportunity of open air events. The 'oval' freestanding building, as an island on this area, is on the border between the inside and outside and provides all opportunities for meetings, which all contribute to social cohesion.
