Built on the site of the former Nickle Arts Museum, the two-storey, 4,000 m² building accommodates the needs of the institute, featuring the latest advances in teaching technology, mock classrooms, a simulation centre for teaching, public lecture space, and multipurpose facilities.
Significant portions of the existing structure were preserved, including the foundation, below-grade structures, and many superstructure elements. A second level was added to the existing single-storey portion of the building to enable mezzanine spaces in the main floor areas. A new central spine also supports a translucent second-level veranda that cantilevers up to 24 metres from the building face.
