Dalarna Media Library is organized as a “spiral of knowledge” identifying a new library culture that stages a wide range of experiences and inspiration.
terrain of the surrounding landscape continues as a ramp that spirals up
through the central atrium of the library – its heart – where all
search of information and orientation take place.
Program: media library
Engineers: Ramböll Sweden Ab, Sweco Systems Ab, Brandskyddslaget
Facade in collaboration with: Jeppe Hein
Competition Team: Adept, Rambøll, Sou Fujimoto, Topotek1, Bosch & Fjord
Client: Förvaltningsbolaget Högskolefastigheten Ab
Contractor: Hmb Construction Ab
Area: 3,000 sqm
The spiral of knowledge creates a varied study environment allowing the
students to move about in the heart space of the library or to withdraw
to more quiet and calm areas along the facade. The variation of sound
levels and the differentiation of activities creates a versatile library
that is rich in experiences. The building has its very own spatial
character uniting library and multi-media functions to create synergy
with the existing university complex.
The characteristic double facade with reflecting horizontal lamellae
fronting a wood cladding is developed in collaboration with Danish
artist Jeppe Hein. Instead of creating an isolated piece of art work
Jeppe Hein and Adept has developed the competition design for the facade
into a detailed and refined expression with an immateriality that
mirrors its surroundings and the people in it with broken reflections.
The lamellas are made from highly polished stainless steel while their
wooden background is a Siberian larch.
The new library is the main attraction and new entrance arriving to the university. To emphasize this, the surrounding spaces are transformed from a large parking lot to an integrated urban plaza, which handles the user and visitor flows at the same time as it optimizes the public spaces around the building into defined activity zones and recreational areas. The library functions are pushed onto the new plaza marking the new main entrance with life and activities. Dalarna Media Library will come to attract the community of Falun acting as a motivating generator for both citizens and local businesses.
