Ørbæk Public Library, Denmark

Public libraries / Completed 2013

An eye for details

With town after town following the downward trend of being forced to close down their libraries, the idyllic town of Ørbæk swims against the current. The town had no public library at all, but now they have a brand new combined school and public library. Not big in size, but rich in details.


It has a personal style and a homely feel, with customized shelving, integrated computer desks and many other bespoke solutions. For example, coloured walls between the shelving creating fun, secluded areas for users.
