IHM Business School
University of Applied Sciences in Gothenburg
Focusing on an inviting and welcoming environment that encouraged collaboration, we worked with mostly natural and tactile materials to create calm and relaxed environments for the IHM Business School in Gothenburg.

The assignment included the refurbishment and decoration of the school's entrance and assembly areas, such as the reception, student café and break areas, classrooms, coffee stations, teachers' offices and the auditorium. A closed building from the 1980s was opened up, light was brought in and the premises were adapted to the activities. The existing range of premises was supplemented with lounges and home offices. Staff moved from fixed workstations to activity-based working. In an inviting way, we made it possible for visitors to stay after classes and work in concentration in the beautiful surroundings. The interior is characterized by a graphic clarity with a base of earthy tones, where the materials exude quality, durability and care.
The assignment was carried out in close cooperation with the client's representative and internal project manager. Kanozi Arkitekter participated from start to finish, a complete process from anchoring with staff and developing a program document, to tender documents, construction documents and further specially designed fixed interior and finally styling and commissioning.
