Open Oproep 0340: Library, social restaurant and polyvalent hall.

A passage is created between the Kerkstraat and the Sas, giving the building 4 active facades, and giving the City a connection between the urban fabric and nature. 2 “landscapes” are superimposed: a parking-square on the roof that encloses the polyvalent hall and the social functions; and the landscape of the library, a big rippling space in which the projected furniture does not block the global vision. The limit between these 2 “landscapes” is formed by a folded concrete slab that incorporates the lightning system, acoustic absorption, etc.
