Tangenten Public Library in Nesodden, Norway

Public libraries / Completed 2012

Modern curves

The new library in Nesodden was a success from start. The move from above a grocery store to its own modern premises has been an aesthetic as well as a functional lift. A look at the visitor statistics shows that the people of Nesodden also appreciate their new library and see it as a social meeting point.


With its organic shapes and soft curves, this is a library distinguished by new thinking. This is not only reflected in the architecture but also in the shelving that follows the organic form. There are plenty of study desks and comfortable seating, information points and self-service stations, making this library a user’s delight.
