Outline

Our concept for this library+gallery is area revitalization by culture, in its low rise, heavy snow district. A new library with a Plaza in concentric designed space. The library itself is on the quiet upper floor, while the gallery is on the ground directly connected to the city. The flat columns are concentrically placed creating hierarchy of private to open public space. The stepped space up to the library leads to Plaza of Books, a space surrounded by books and natural light. The outer walls are covered by 100mm wood panels, creating a warm welcoming library in the snow deep cityscape.
