Floor plans

For Rogent, the floor plans of buildings express their convenience and suitability for the purpose for which they have been constructed; that is, whether they are properly adapted for particular uses. Because of this, he established a symmetrical arrangement based on central axes which became very important for the building:

  • In the University, the Paranymph Hall is the principal section, articulating the rest of the building, which is arranged in two lateral bodies.
  • In the Conciliar Seminary, the chapel occupies the centre of the building, which is arranged with a Greek cross floor plan.
  • In some houses, Rogent adopted construction solutions inspired by urban Gothic palaces, such as the internal courtyard around which the building was organized, with access by staircase, to the upper floor.
