Helsinki

A building open to the city and its inhabitants

2012

Central Library

Helsinki

This building is definitely a space for culture, exchange and life. It responds to new cultural expectations to promote free access to technological innovation and knowledge.
Built on 5 levels accessible by escalators, it offers a large landscaped area on the top floor.
The interior spaces are as open as possible to allow free movement between activities and allow greater flexibility.
The facade is designed with electro chromatic triple glazing to control opacity and protect the player from the sun.
All these characteristics make this place an open space for the city and its inhabitants.
The Finnish landscape recreated on the roof of the building allows it to be integrated into the local environment and to offer users a beautiful place to read in the open air or simply "lunch on the grass"...
