Amersfoort Public Library, Netherlands

Public libraries / Completed 2010

A family-friendly community centre

In the young, pulsating area of Amersfoort, culture is an important part that contributes to the life quality for all the young families living here. Housing a school, children’s daycare, an art school, a theatre, and the new library, the new building ICOON Amersfoort meet – and exceed – their needs.

Just like the surrounding area and the building, the library is a truly modern creation. A place for cultural experiences and social interaction as well as a tool for purposeful information searching.

A wooden Frontline Shelving System with steel shelves makes the core of the interiors. Browsers, pedestals and chairs are other important elements that help the everyday functionality.
