Debeli Rtič, Slovenia
A new library building extends and continues the medieval city edge and complements the south- western silhouette of the city. The buildings subterranean level is extended towards the river bank due to spatial demands and restrictions. The green roof creates a new public surface. The facade is subdivided into smaller strips that decrease the scale of the building and adapt to the shape of surrounding buildings. The building reacts to the surrounding heights and repeats the form of the double-pitched roof. The inside of the building volume is horizontally subdivided with the library departments and vertically through infrastructure.
