The northwest area in Copenhagen is located between the lively and diverse urban neighborhood of Nørrebro and the villa neighborhoods at the edge of the city. Many people live and work in this multiethnic area. Yet, since the area is located in the vicinity to numerous entry roads, most Copenhageners only use Nordvest as passage when going in and out of the city by car. The Culture House and Library tries to help improve the identity of the area. It is designed to create a landmark and to provide a meeting point for the local community. The new culture house consists of 4 functions, stacked on top of each other like a series of golden books. Each "book" is a world of its own with individual interiors and furnishment. The spaces between are open zones for flexible use. The foyer and zone between the existing building and the extension act as an urban passage for the neighborhood. The concert hall is placed on top of the building. A powerful object that seems to defy gravity.
