    In a city part dominated by old concrete housing slabs a new library and community center is created. The new building is integrated into an urban fabric by continuing and extending the logic of modernist urban structure thus becoming visible, well accessible and surrounded by meaningfull functional spaces.

    An open glass building representing transparency extends the interior space to the surroundings and invites for interaction. The dynamic inner structure of wooden volumes creates a vibrant inner city.
