A New Entry in the World's Most Beautiful Libraries Category: Vennesla Library and Cultural Center
Welcome to the newly renovated Vennesla Library and Cultural Center in Vennesla, Norway.
Norwegian architecture firm Helen & Hard have created a remarkable space by combining an existing community house, learning center, and public space. The result is, among other things, a sanctuary for the printed word. The clean green design and open space are as an inviting a space as a community can hope for.
Nestled within this vast openness are private study spaces at the end of each aisle.
Also the branding and use as a cultural center present tremendous opportunities for our libraries as they try an map out the road ahead.
