URBAN POWER designed this awarded competition entry in an open international competition.
The design emphasises the importance of creating synergy between the community center, library and school – well as the rest of the town by being visible and well-connected with roads and paths.
Placed centrally, the tall structure has a great view of the river and forested hills, making it a natural meeting point.
Many parts of the building can easily be double-functional by interchanging between school and library functions, as the activities of the two user groups will naturally differ from daytime and weekday to evening and weekends.
