Youth Hostel

Metaform as Architects

The community center is situated in the middle of the Larochette Park, which is located in the heart of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg in the canton of Mersch. It fits in with the playful path devised by the Youth Hostel to encourage visitors to discover their natural surroundings. Nestled in the forest, the community center is situated along the bank thus separating the park from the communal road. In an effort to promote integration, this building tends to blend in and harmonize with its environment because of its uncluttered volumetry and its "natural camouflage" composed of larch cladding. The large bay windows, which add rhythm to the facades, are not merely natural light carriers, but they also act as visual frames onto the surrounding spaces and thus favor the dialogue between the interior and the exterior.
