location Helmond
function library
contributed by Fan

The new City Library is the first component of a comprehensive new inner city shopping zone (master plan: Prof. Joan Busquets). Directly adjacent to the new library are the 1970's Tree Houses and Theatre by Piet Blom. Here the new library façade is moulded and sloped in dialogue with its dramatic neighbour. The outer, street-facing façade is the representative face and entrance of the new library. Careful detailing and material choice for external surfaces provides a tactility fitting to the historic Helmond city centre. Rough dark brown and unusually horizontal bricks (Hilversum format 50x290mm) on upper levels have open vertical joints and beige horizontal mortar joint, stressing the layered grain of the brickwork.
